There probably isn't a fuse in the solenoid itself but there may be a fusible link which is a special wire that is designed to burn itself in two in case of a short. The fusible link is usually located near the starter relay.

Check under the hood for a second fuse box. The one in the cab isn't always all of the fuses. If you are getting nothing you may also have a bad battery connection. Inspect the battery wires and pour a can of Coke on the battery terminals to clean them. You can use a multi meter to check to see if there is a connection on your connections. Hope this helps.

If it is a true battery disconnect, it will disconnect the battery from the chassis. The horn will not work. We need more info. Does anything else chassis related work ? Headlights, radio etc. Do you have an emergency start switch and does it work ? In other words is it just the ignition and dash that went out, or was it the battery ?
