Now What....HELP PLEASE

I finally got the car out of the shop. I drove it for a week and now shes back under. I was attempting to turn the engine over on a cold start. It was trying to turn over and then I went back to off so I could try it again. This time the lights came on but it didnt try and crank. No noise at all. I have tested the battery and replaced the solenoid and nothing has changed. What is next on the list?

It sounds like when I had a loose battery wire. Double check all your connections and make sure they're tight.

Could that happen in the middle of a crank though? I mean nothing changed at all when it stopped trying.

Mine would crank a few times then everything would die. After a few mins, it would crank again. After a bit the brake light would turn on with one click if the ignition, but as soon as I went to crank, everything would go dead.

Turned out there was a wire loose at the solenoid - it would stay connected until I started to crank, then everything would go dead.

At any rate, there's no point in not just tightening everything down just to be sure - it doesn't cost anything.
