does it crank over or you turn key and nothing. check your grounds. chassis to motor. battery to chassis. even though its a 'new' battery does it have any voltage.

I turn the key and get nothing, I will take a look at the grounds and see what I find. Thanks

Did you check for evidence of rodents living in it while parked and chewing on the wires I'm rewiring a 1996 daville that's rats chewed the wiring all to hell

YOU HAVE 2 GROUNDS ON THE BATTERY FOR GROUND . SOME TIME S ONE GROUND IS FORGOTTEN, ONLY THE DASH WILL LIGHT UP. LOOK FOR A SECOND GROUND UNDER THE BATTERY TRAY.
