Start with a test probe using the engine for the ground.turn on the key,probe the battery + ,then work your way through the dog bone fuse and up to the fuses.Somewhere it's lost electric.
Either corroded contacts at the battery,frame,cracked fuse,broken ignition switch,etc.Poke around at it and see.
