Desperate for help with no crank/no click/no start!

2001 Ranger 3L v6 auto, 186k miles. Never had a problem. One day last month I park it at home. 10 minutes later I need to make a quick trip . Get in, turn key, absolutely nothing happens. Replaced the battery, starter/solenoid, and ignition switch (not the key cylinder lock, but the white box inside the dash below and to the left of the steering wheel...has lots of wires going into and out of it,...turning the key slides a little metal pin inside it up and down). All fuses and relays are good, neutral safety switch is good. Key lock cylinder is mechanically working properly. Engine is not headlights, interior lights, wipers, radio, etc all work fine. Theft light is not blinking rapidly. Headlights do not dim when ignition key is turned. Where do I go from here?

Welcome to the forum

Fuse 11 (50amp) in engine fuse box powers the ignition switch
test it

Fuse 11 is also connected to Starter Relay in engine fuse box, load connection, read on

When key is turned to START Fuse 11 power is sent to Fuse 24 (7.5amp) in cab fuse box

From there power goes thru Clutch/Neutral switch to the Starter Relay in the engine fuse box.
Starter relay is grounded by the computer, it is part of PATS anti-theft.
Power from ignition switch Closes this relay IF computer Grounds it.

When Starter relay Closes Fuse 11 power passes thru the relay activating starter motor

Check that relay if fuses are good
