Is the battery in correctly? Positive to positive,negative to negative, if you put it in backwards you may have blown main fuses. This may sound weird but I have seen that some people forgot to take off the post protector before putting on the cables.

ok, heres my problem, i drove my car this morning to work, but when i got off work it wouldnt start. it has been doing this for a couple of months now and i had the battery checked and fully charged. i also checked it with a meter and when i turn the key on there is no change in the voltage. the lights wont turn on, nothing happens. no click nothing. i dont know where to look next.

So if your certain that the cables are in good condition and on correctly, and the starter is in good condition, then the next step is to check for power through the main fuses and the fuse box, from there onto the ignition switch to make sure it is supplying power to the proper systems when turned on.
