confused Big Problem!!! 88 F-150 not starting!!!

this is one of those classic "my car won't start" threads.

so anyway my truck has been giving me a lot of problems over the past few months. first the starter was bad, replaced that. the battery died on me, replaced that. starter solenoid went bad, replaced that. after the last fix my truck was running fine. but one day i went to work and went i got in to go home it didn't start.

replaced the battery again and still didn't start. but it does have the click click sound. it sounds like it's coming from the starter solenoid. i'm stuck because that was brand new also. haven't replaced it yet, but even if that fixes it would could be the ultimate problem of the truck.

this info might help: since the problems starting happening my radio would reset itself sometimes on startup. kinda like if i disconnected the battery. checked my battery and everything is tight.

was also told it could be my grounds.

i'm lost can someone help me out.

thanks

frankie

Check all connections,pos. and neg. battery to solenoid(relay) to starter. They must be clean and tght. Also check to be sure the wires are not corroded under the insulation.
