    It sounds like you're in south Florida if there's no power and no

    too bad you haven't figured out how to read a fucking repair manual.

    Your best bet is to bring it into a shop. The $50 diagnostic fee is nothing
    compared to the money you'll waste by using a shotgun approach and no clue
    how to logically trouble shoot the electrical system.

    Your head lights work independently of your ignition switch right? Do
    your head lights lights work?

    If they do not, use a voltmeter to measure from the body to the + of
    the battery. If you're not seeing anything, check the ground strap.
    Clean connections on both side of the negative lead to the battery). If
    everything's ok there, check from the body to the fuse box. If you're
    not seeing anything, check the wire from the battery to the fusebox.

    If your head lights do work, it might be the ignition switch so report
    back with your findings if that is the case. That will take a little
    more probing.

    check ignition switch (that's if your headlights are working fine because
    there's independent of the ignition switch)
