Hello everyone. I have an 88 Ford ranger with the 2.9l v6. I've had it parked for a while at my mom's house and she hooked the battery in backwards one day. Ever since then when I put in the battery I get no power to anything. It is just dead, no lights, no horn, absolutely nothing. I replaced the solenoid but so far no luck. Looking for suggestions as what to look for. Thanks in advance.

Not real familiar with 1st gen Rangers, but I would look for a blown fusible link under the hood. Also, with the battery connected (properly), use a VOM to check for power at the solenoid, fuse box, etc. My guess is when she connected it backward, it fried the fusible link that is there to protect the truck from such things. HTH
