Is there any juice at the ignition switch? have you looked over the fuses? The system GROUND (1/0 battery cable supposed to connect to the chassis/frame and to the motor block) should be present...many electrical problems begin when this 1/0 cable after having welded itself to the frame no longer issues a dependable ground...so even if it seems okay might be makin' with the "brown out" power (on the ground side)~

...a coarse wirebrush, after disassembling the 1/0 cable and scratchin' up the area in contact may just be the thing what gives reliable ground here~
