1992 Ford Explorer XLT
I have a 1992 Ford Explorer XLT and this morning I drove down the street and back and it was running rough the last few days and after I parked it I went inside and took a shower and came back out and went to start it and it made one tick and then stopped. I then opened the hood and saw one of the spark plug wires was out and hanging behind the cable pack then i plugged it back in and went to start and then nothing. I have no electrical at all and the lights won't even turn on and i tried to jump it and nothing happened? what could it be? what should i do?

sounds like a bad connection to the battery wires or stater solenoid,,,
or a bad ground,,,
