There is a 30 amp. fuse under the cover attached to the big relay just forward of your battery. Check it and you main fusable link too. Good hunting

Bad ground. Any time i have lost all power, on anything, all of a sudden it has been a bad ground. Even though the battery appears good, have you hooked it up to a set of jumper cables to another vehicle?

Yeah check for good ground, volt meter shows 12.8 at the battery. the top 15a fuse has no power to it whether key on or off. I think i can fix it with a gallon of gas, a match and an open field. hehe

There was a recent thread on this same thing, I can't find it though. The connections at the solenoid in front of the battery were burned up.

Guess what ladies and gentleman (I apologise if that offends anyone) while I was at the shop another ole GW'er customer suggested I replace all the spade fuses for Sh**s and grins as they might test good but are to weak to carry the current, so I did and she is running fine (for now). Again we learn a valuable lesson on preventative maintenance.

Thanks all, you all rock!!!

I replaced each fuse and tried starting after each, it was the top fuse in the fuse panel on the left side that made it come alive again.
