I have a 1983 Mustang GT. Im kinda having the same problem. I was driving one day and I went into the store. When I came back out the car would not start. The gauges did move and i could here a click noise. I had someone to help me start it and it went down hill. The starter relay started smoking. I did replace it the starter relay and the battery. The car still will not start. Looking at the wiring diagram. It is a high percentage it is the fusible links. Where are those purchased and how do you replace them? I need some major help asap...
I had the same problem. I went inside to grab a bit to eat and came out to a dead car. I thought orginally it was just the batt. I jumped it and smoked the start solenoid. I replaced to starter solenoid, batt, and the positive and neg connections going to the battery. Sometimes the cables don't show visable problems but cut a slit in the wire. You could easy have corrison like I did.
