I changed the alternator on my 2003 ford explorer. I connected everything correctly but the car won't turn over at all, no clicking noise, no power inside the car. The battery is fully charged. When I started, I disconnect both the positive and negative cables from the battery.

    Double check your battery connections. Make sure you did not get the polarity wrong...If that happened the main fuse link could have blown.
