Start checking your fuses. There's a fuse panel inside the car on the left side of the dash between it and the door and under the hood on the driver side. After that, get a multimeter and check voltage at the battery. Also, when you turn the key to the on position, does the security light go off or stay on?

Also make sure your battery cable connections are clean and tight.

first thing i did, they are and bttery is new and has full charge

checked fuses , couldnt find anything, no lights at all including security when i turn the key , possible ignition switch ya think?

no power to anything other than the headlights and inside lights on the floor

i appreaciate the help. please keep it comin

It could be a small wire that connects to the ignition switch And goes down the steering colume has broken. It reads the Security key code. If its broken nothing will come on but the Lights. A dealer can check this and if your willing to pull the steering Wheel it's a fairly simple fix. Hope this helps

Check also the starter wires. Had similar issue and the problem was + wire to the starter.

Same thing going on with my '95 firebird. Can a woman fix it
