I have a 1981 Chevrolet K30 with the 454 and TH 400. The mileage is somwhere around 130000. So this is the problem, the main power wires that come off the starter solenoid up to the wiring harness inbetween the firewall and the engine totally fried. When it happened I was driving and of course lost all power and the engine stalled. I replaced the wires and connectors but it won't start. The solenoid doesn't engage, and I have no power to any of the lights. No brake lights, head lights, blinkers, interior light, reverse lights, nothing. Funny thing is I have power to the radio, power locks, power windows, and when I turn the key to start the engine the brake instrument lamp lights up. I have no clue what to do next. I have checked all the fuses and they are good. What do I try now?
