I have a problem on my old f250. Its not starting -when I turn the key to the start position and try and crank it, nothing happens. I have replaced the Ignition switch, Ignition control module, Starter (had broken teeth) and the Solenoid. The battery is good, and the truck started fine UNTIL I tried to replace the stoplight switch. All I did was unplug it and plug the new one in, the truck cranked once, and wouldnt crank from then on. I can and have started the truck, but only by putting the key in the ON position and jumping the solenoid. I've been looking for broken wires, and havent seen anything. Any advice?
