No ignition

Problem: No start at all with the turn of the key.
Everything works with the exception of turn signal and ignition.
Replaced batterys and had new key and ignition replaced.
Appreciate any help.

Explain "no start". Does the starter respond at all? Clicking noises or turn key and nothing happens? Is this on your car, truck or motorhome?

I had a HECK OF A TIME getting under the frame and used up all of my energy. I have had solenoids and starter go out on my chevy trucks in the past, but i was a lot younger.
Thanks........

It is my motorhome,
I now believe with other help it is the solenoid.
Thanks../

If after you have determined the solenoid connections are clean and tight you may want to do some testing as described here. I know you said you have run into a bad solenoid before but it may be easier to make some simple tests and verify its a bad solenoid than to remove it and find out it's not. Let us know what you find. Good Luck!
