    The problem could be fusible links. They are often found where the wires run from the main battery terminal on the solenoid. They are usually in a short, fat bulge in the insulation. The outside may look burned. If a wire supplying the fuse block is not hot at the fuse block, likely it has a burned out fusible link. Check it for conductivity. If it is open, you can buy repair kits for it.

    If it is not fusable links, go through the standard checks at, and let us know what you found if you are still having trouble.
