Check the battery cable connections. Make sure they are clean and tight

look at the fusible links off the positive of the battery.

Lastly, check for power at the ignition switch

As a temp fix if there is some of the link left crimp a piece of wire on to it. Be careful there may be a short in the system that popped the link.
