Start by checking the fuse link wires. GM put them down by the starter. They tap off the larger battery cable terminal. Tug on them a little. If they act like a wire, they're okay. If one acts like a rubber band, it's burned open and must be replaced. They can corrode off too. If the wire can be scraped clean a new terminal can be soldered on.
