NO power to fuse panel

I hope someone works on 1988 cheverolet c1500 pickups. I have been through the knowledge base, and searched on this and other sites. I have 13volts at the battery clean connections, all fusable links check good. Grounds are good. I have no power to the fuse block. NV 4500 trans with no power to what i think is netural safety switch.
I pulled the ign switch fron under the collumn, (Not the key) I disconnected the wires and have no power to any wires going into the ign switch.
Please advise me if you can and thank you so much.

Check the bulk head connetor. More than likely it has either melted the connector or the terminal. It should be the large red wire going throught the connector.

Check power in and out of the ignition switch. Red going in and the purple is the start signal going out. Then check the neutral safety switch while holding the key in start position. If you were having connection problems then it it quite possible it burned up one of these switches.

Most fuse blocks are fed power from a fusible link coming off of the starter solenoid..(the same big lug that your positive battery cable hooks too). Check there..that fusible link could be burned out or you could just have a bad connection there.

Since you were able to get power by disconnecting and re-connecting you most likely have some corroded connections. I would pull it back off and see what the problem is. That is prime conditions for an electrical fire !!!!!!

There should be 2 fusable links on the big lug of the starter check them.

Make sure you have a "ground triangle".
good ground to the frame ,body & engine.

Check for dirty Battery terminals , wires & connections.

Make sure the bolt going into the fuse block is tight.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the truck? Have you followed the wires and verified continuity to the 'start circuit'?
