Default Electrical issue????

My 1994 F250 has no power! Battery has been checked, the grounds look good, negative and positive cables are tight. Fuses are all good and have been swapped around as well as the relays. Battery has been charged, even tried to jump it off at first. No headlights no start nothing at all. And of course my windows are stuck down to add insult to injury! A local auto parts guys told me to try here. So does anyone have any ideas??????

Does the key feel loose or anything when you turn it? Try to probe each battery cable at least a few inches away from the terminals to make sure voltage is actually present beyond the ends.

No the key feels tight in the tumblers, but I will double check as well as probe the wires.

Sorry, I meant when you turn it. Does it feel looses when you turn it and if you turn it all the way does it spring back like it should

Double check the wires coming off the positive post you have lost somthing coming off it or the ground ,the headlights should come on even if the ignition switch is messed up.

I will again, just to be sure. Both sides were tight a day ago , the grounds looked good and were tight. I do have a tester to check all fuses and relays . Well double check all I can find. Man I'm just grasping at what I can before I tow it to a mechanic.

Did you clean the battery terminals and posts, use a volt meter and start checking for 12volts along the positive side of your wiring

What you may want to look into are the fuse links if they were to blow you can't usually tell without using an ohm meter, as they will just look like a wire with a little rubber box built in.
