95 ford 350 van has no power to headlights, radio, interiors, dash, blinkers...

95 ford 350van with a 5.8L The van starts just fine and the battery is all good. Whats happening is many of the things that are controlled by the interior box do not seem to be working.. This is causing my van to not come out of park and have no working lights or signals. I suspected relays under the hood may be a problem but all have been changed and still most everything is out. every fuse in the car and under the hood have been checked. any idea what ay be causing this?

No power at Batt connections and switched accesseries means a main power supply feed is open check your fuseable links for opens first if memory serves ther are a bundle of them under the hood around the battery or the sol.If they are all good test light the fuses with the ing in the on position and the headlights and a turn sig turned on to see if power is on both sides of all the fuses. If not you may have a bad fuse box,possibably a bad bulkhead connector.The shifter interlock is controled by the brake light circut in unison with the run position on the ing switch since it does run and brakes are a batt feed thats probably your issue there.

resolved

the wires that left the starter solenoid and contained the fusible links were damaged down the line right before they entered the fuse box under the hood.

Damage was due to 15 years of rubbing and was fixed by replacing a section of damaged wire.

The links themselves were not damaged but the symptoms were exactly the same
