I went to start my car, turned the key, the dash lights came on for a split second, then everything went dead. I rotated the ignition a few times, no power coming on at all. I grabbed my voltmeter to check the battery, shows 12.5 volts. I replaced the connectors for the battery 6 months ago. I check every fuse, none of them are popped. I got my extra set of keys and tried them, same thing. I don't know where to check next.

Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. Also, check the main ground from the battery to the engine block to make sure it is tight and clean. Double check all main fuses under the hood.
