Which fuse box? What engine size?

Check the connection where the positive battery wire bolts to the under-hood fuse box if that is the one that is dead.

Rats. It is the one under the hood that is a common problem on all car brands.

The fuses inside are fed, in groups, from the larger fuses under the hood, so check those first. The large 30 and 40-amp spade-type fuses, (orange and green ones), have two test points on top. Use a test light to quickly check those. If you find twelve volts on both test points, that fuse is good. If you find zero volts on both sides, that circuit is turned off. You are looking for any fuse that has twelve volts on one test point and zero volts on the other one.

If those fuses are okay, check the smaller spade-type fuses in the inside fuse box the same way, and try to determine which fuses are dead and which ones do have twelve volts. Do that with the ignition switch in the "run" position. Based on your findings, I will look at the diagram for your engine and see what the dead fuses have in common.

What are the symptoms you are trying to solve, or which systems are dead?

Found the problem. Big black wire coming from out side fuse came loose from battery and felldown where I could see pulled on wires and there it popped up. Just little things like that drive me crazy. Thanks for your help Ken.
