no power for anything when you turn the key. New battery with 13 volts. Ground is good. Is there a relay from the key switch?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When you turn the key the dash lights don't come on.  No power to anything.  Brand new battery 2 months ago.  13 volts on the battery.  Is there a relay that energizes when the key is turned?  It's 25 degrees in the garage.  I sprayed some lube in the key ignition in case the tumblers may be hanging up, didn't help.

I found a bad ground after all. I stripped back the wire and made a new connection it started right up.

Good to hear. Always nice too when people post the resolution to their problems, might help someone else searching for an answer to their problem.
