Hi, my name is***** absolutely nothing in the car works, meaning there is no power anywhere in the car, the problem will have to be the battery or the battery cable connections.

You should recheck your cable connections. If you don't see anything wrong you can try connecting jumper cables from another battery and see if you get power. If you do it tells you that your battery is defective.

The only thing that can cause total loss of power to the car is the battery or the cable connections.
