are you still there?

It sounds like you have a blown fusible link which is located next to the power distribution center or poor battery connection. Follow the power wire from battery which will lead you to the fusible links. Here is a picture of them, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

I checked all links and they had continuity

Keep following the wire to the fuse box while checking voltage and see where voltage stops then repair as needed. Wire goes right from battery to fusible links, then to fuse box. So if fuse box doesn't have power that means there is a problem somewhere between battery and fuse box.
