1967 Mustang 302 V8 wiring problem

Car was not cranked for a couple of weeks.
It is in my garage.
When I tried to start the engine nothing happened.
Charged the battery and nothing happened.
Installed a new switch module and nothing happens.
My lights don't burn either.
The yellow wire to my switch is hot.
The pink wire has power when switched on.
The starter turns over when jumped at the solenoid.
What could have gone wrong to cause this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.

1967 Mustang Grounding.

Just replaced the positve and Negative Cables and installed new Optima Red Top Battery. Power windows, Power Door Locks and fog lights work.
I have lost power between the switch and the starter solenoid.
I think the lights have a circuit breaker, but I can't find it.
Thanks for the tip - I have had the grounding problem many times - but never ran into this before.

Check the wires for the neutral safety switch. There is a plug at the top of the firewall (rubber plug with 4 wires). Follow the wires both ways and look for an open circuit. HTH>

Norm.

Thanks Norm.
Transmission Neutral Safety switch was first thing I checked.
I have lost my light switch circuit also.
My wiring diagram shows the harness having two plugs.
I haven't been able to find them.
I don't think they would have come unplugged anyway.
It appears that the switch isn't furnishing power to the fuse box for one thing.
The Power windows and remote door locks work. (they have their own fusing.
Thanks for your interest and help.
