2007 420 Rancher solenoid problem

I have a 2007 420 rancher es that keeps toasting the starter solenoid. I have replaced the battery and the solenoid. The solenoid went out again. Replaced the solenoid and it went out again. Now I have no power at all. All fuses are good in fuse box and battery tested at 12.56 volts. ANY SUGGESTIONS.

if you keep blowing fuses..then you have a short somewhere...if you don't have any power what so ever..then your main fuse is blown..i have never seen selonoids shorting out..other than from time..if something keeps toasting it..you got a bad short from battery to selonoid..this would be my guess...your starter isn't locked up is it ?..check to make sure your starter still works...check all your leads from battery to starter..and from battery to ground.

Are you talking about the fuse labeled main fuse in the fuse box (30 amp) or something else.

yup..thats your main fuse..make sure it's good..check your battery leads to your battery..selonoid..and then to the starter..somewhere in that line leads..is a short..or somewhere in your wireing..( a hot wire..more than likely )..has rubbed through the wireing harness..and is touching bare metal..and when you turn the key on..your grounding out..causing the fuses and such to blow.

Found the problem. In the positive battery cable there is a relay in the quick connect plugin. It is between the battery and the fuse box. There is also a cable that runs to the solenoid in this cable. The dealer calls it battery relay cable. Thanks for all the help. From your suggestions of checking all the wires lead me to this relay. It cuts the power from the battery to the fuse box and the soleniod.
