Nothings working. I take it not even the lights. Okay lets get the battery load tested-inspect both ends of the battery cables corrosion/tightness. When battery checks out-you should see all the lights the normally comes On when key at run position.

Have helper hold key to start position and check for power at the starter solenoid purple wire-No power

Check maxi fuse no.7 60amp and fuse no.17 15amp., starter relay,neutral safety back-up switch, and pass key module and last ignition switch.

You are correct the lights do not work. There is nothing wrong with the battery load. STill no lights or anything.
I went to check the fuses and noticed the glove box light was on. SO I tried to strat the car. It turned right over. Ran for a few minutes then died again. Again there is nothing no lights nothing.

Check the bulkhead connector, thats the main harness that goes into the car, wiggle it and see if power comes back on. Do the same at the PCM, right side of the dash above the kick panel. It's intermittent, so it may be hard to find, but check as may connectors as you can find, and check those battery cables at both ends.
