I changed the bad alternator it ran fine all day no problems went home shut it off, it sat the whole next day. I went out the third day to start it and everything is normal turning the key until I got to the start then I have nothing. I HAVE NO CRANKING, NO FUEL PUMP, BUT WHEN I JUMP THE RELAYS WITH A WIRE THEY WORK FINE I HAVE TRACED EVERYTHING I CAN THINK OF PLEASE HELP

Have you checked to make sure all battery terminals are clean and tight? Is there power getting to the starter?

If you have power to the starter (12v) and it doesn't engage, it sounds like you have a bad starter. Have you had it checked?

I'll try to help. If you can jump the relay, that tells me there is power there. Have you tried a new relay?
