yardmachine riding mower

HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLP. Won't start. Tried new battery no luck, friend suggested starter, checked it out o.k., friend suggested selenoid, bought a new one and now won't even start to turn over. I think I hooked wires up wrong. Does red and black from battery go to same post on selenoid and the just big red out to starter???

NO....both wires dosn't go on the same post on the selenoid.The red cable comming from the battery and the fuse link goes on one big post on top,and the rd one from the starter goes on the other.What it proibaly did when you hoked it up this way was to blow the fuse.

B 4 U replaced the selenoid,would it do anything at all??
