Test for voltage directly at the battery terminals. Check your polarity. If that's good then check your negative ground straps. Then check the positive cables. Power will flow if there is power and also a pathway.

The battery cables were corroding.

That was an easy fix. I am happy for you James. I have 1999 Grand Cherokee Limited with a six and they will never die.
