there is no power from ignition to battery. When you turn the key there is nothing at all. The Blinker and brake lights also do not work. Some fuses were checked

I'd have to make sure the battery has a full charge and the connections are good. Use a testlite on the fuses in the fuse block, your looking for voltage. You have to use a digital multimeter--testlite-- whatever to check for voltage. Some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot when you turn on the key. The fuses should have a bare spot over each leg, you don't have to pull the fuse to check for voltage, just check each bare spot. The ground for whatever tester your using, goes to a metal part of vehicle/ chassis ground. The other end, you touch to the bare spot over each fuse leg.

You may have an issue with a fusible link. Some of the circuits off the positive battery post, may go to a junction block, for fusible links. Fusible links should be hot on both sides, if the link is ok.
