First thing to check is the battery connections, make sure they and shiny clean, none of the black corrosive stuff, bend the battery cables and listen for some crunching sounds, if you hear that sound then replace the battery cables cause corrosion has gotten inside the cables, then check your main fuses, make sure none of them are blown. You should have power by now.
