Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

If the battery is for sure good, then you must have a broken fusible link in the positive cable going to the power distribution bod near the battery. OR, if there is power there, then you don't have power coming out. Be sure to check all your relays and fuses too in that PDB.

Thanks, Ron
