No power to the fuse box and I could not identify #7 so I checked them all. And checked the power into the fuse box.

Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 3 years ago
ok if that big power wire that bolts to the under hood fuse block stud shows NO power that is our problemthat power wire runs right from the fuse box to the positive battery cablethat wire is bad OR where that wire meets the positive battery cable is bad or there is a battery cable connection issue at the batterythat is all the things that will cause NO power at that fuse box big wireyou need to remove and clean both battery cables down with sand paper or a scotch pad and make sure the wire from the fuse box where it connects to the battery cable is good
