Primary fuse box WAS NOT checked.
Secondary fuse box WAS checked and all fuses good, (drivers side of dashboard)

if you look at the starter relay and test for power at 30 do you have it there?

I had NO POWER @ 30, (black wire), when cranking motor with key.

you dont need to crank the engine to have power at 30. it should be hot all the time

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

you need to check all of the fusible links.

There was NO POWER at the black wire, even before I was turning ignition key to start position.I was using a FLUKE 114 multimeter.

Fusible links = small flat braided wiring, grey color? Or can u send me a picture?

fusible links = fat wire rubbery in texture and should say fusible link in white faded wording on the wire

David, I'm gonna have to cut this conversation short, time for bed. I'll still give you a "thumbs up" referral. Thank you for all of the info so far. I was thinking my problem may have been a column ignition switch, but you have given me more options to look into. Thank you, ***** *****
