Could be fuse,but this year model more than likely wiring,may have been eat by roddents,or just bad from sitting.


Does anything work? Will it crank? Headlights work? Begin looking for corrosion on every terminal you see, including the ground. Multi-meter time - begin at the battery and work forward.
