    Open circuit somewhere(bad connection). Check battery connections -clean and free of corrosion , faulty connection at fusebox(main cable hook-up) ,ignition switch , in other words all your main power distribution wires and connections.Are you troubleshooting this yourself? If so a voltmeter/ohmmeter and wiring diagrams would be a big plus.
