Check the fuse again that you just replaced. Did it blow again ?

checked it and all the fuses all are good, it there a fusible link?


Check wire going to starter most of the time that is where the fusible link.

thanks for the in-put, I have not looked at the link yet but does the ignition switch come in after the link? it appears as though everything from the switch is dead


When things like making a mistake putting the battery in wrong is the reason they put in fuses so that it will not burn out a main part. Google this Put battery in wrong on the year , make and model of your vehicle and it will take you to some sites that will show you the fuse that needs to replace when battery has been installed wrong.
