Try cleaning the battery terminals...

The battery and terminals are clean and fully charged

Next would be to check fuses, ignition fuse should be in a fuse box under the hood. Take the cover off and look for any blown fuse. Then there is a fusible link from your battery, not the big red wire, there is a smaller red wire, which has a fusible link in it . The wire would need to be tested to see if there is an open circuit.

What next if it is that link?

Just have to replace the wire.

I found the 175 amp master fuse looking for the fusable link and that was the issue. Thank you
