Checking battery voltage would be a good start off point .
have tried with fully charged new battery still nothingno dash lights radio/absolutly nthing
Get a jump lead and use it as a temp earth from engine to body . Double check battery cables for tightness and try shaking .They can look o.k but be corroded inside covering .
