Battery has a full charge, both battery cables, good? Did you track the positive battery connections to follow the voltage. I haven't looked at your wiring, yet? There is always the wiring--fusible links--whatever.

Just to add, you mentioned ignition switch, note the wiring. The wires going into ignition switch at the top are hot all the time. One wire is red, the other is pink with a black tracer, check for voltage.

The wires coming off the bottom of switch in the diagram go hot with the ignition switch in various positions, start--run--acc--whatever. Note the wire colors, check for voltage.

The info I looked at was for jeep wrangler sport. For voltage on red wire, check fuse 3--30amp, underhood power distribution center. Not only check the fuse, check for voltage on the fuse circuit.

If the red wire at ignition switch, has no voltage. I'd replace the red wire from underhood fuse box for the proper fuse to ignition switch. Could be problem with wiring from underhood fuse box to ignition switch?

I'd have to check voltage on the red wire, hopefully we're talking about the same wire?
