Get a 12V test light or a multi-meter and beginning backward from the battery. Check battery connections for proper contact first. If there is absolutely no voltage anywhere, check positive wire to fuse panel for current.

One of the wires that plugs into the side of the fuse panel was loose, Auto Zone was telling me probably a bad altenator!! $469 for one!!! Luckily my key was in the ignition so my door finger started chiming while I was wiggling wires!! Thanks a lot OJ!!!
