Default No Dash Lights, No Radio, No Click, Won't Start

We went out to start the D21 the other day and it wouldn't turn over. Actually, it wouldn't do anything. Replaced the battery, we pulled the starter relay and checked to see if it "clicked" with power and it did. It's a manual and the clutch switch is working.

No dash lights, no radio, no nothing when we turn the key.

We just bought the truck about 3 months ago and it ran great until this!!

Thanks for the help

is there more than one fusible link or should the issue be with the link closest to the battery?

Thank you for the replies and help

I think there should be a couple on the 95. You can check them with a multimeter. No contanuity means no worky. On the 95 it'll be right there on the battery.

5 speed, right? Check the clutch lockout switch. On the clutch pedal... I had to replace mine.

OK, re-read and you said you checked it...

How , please? Did you use a meter to check continuity?

There are 2 on the 95 4 cyl.
I would replace both. I believe they are still available from the dealer.

Well, we replaced the fusible link off the battery, and still nothing!

Is there another place we should look for loss of power?

Thanks
