Check the fuses, battery cables and connections, and grounds. Corrosion problems sometimes cannot be easily seen and can be present in wires under the insulation. The fuses should be remved and carefully checked, they're known to crack and loosen up in their holders. The electrical problems in these cars is an ongoing battle, but don't give up.
