I hope you guys have some ideas. I went to use my truck today, I put the key in and tried to start it, it turned over just a short time and then nothing. I have no power at all! The battery was charged, but I put the charger on it any way. I still have nothing. I checked the fuses, but I think these are just for the lights etc. I have no power to anything. The battery has a full charge, I took the cables off and cleaned them anyway, and checked the connections I could get to from under the hood. There had been no signs of any problems before today. Any ideas? Thanks

another possibility causing a no crank; neutral safety switch on side of transmission put in Neutral and see if it cranks; may have to wiggle shift lever a bit while holding key to "CRANK" position

otherwise the comments on fusible link are right on, driver side inner fenderwell about even with front of hood hinge, usually a "3 into 1" with a big heavy black rubber splice. one of the wires on the "3 side" of plug....

You say that the battery as charged but you charged it again anyway; sure nobody put the wrong alligator clip on the wrong terminal? (black doesnt go to "hot")

1 more; I have owned several Dodges over the years; they like to corrode the battery cables from the inside out; check the ground connections at firewall and engine too.
