When you say, "No power" do you mean the radio doesn't work or the blower motor isn't working? Sounds like the battery is disconnected. Do you have a switch on the dashboard to isolate the house batteries from the starter battery?

Or are you trying to start the engine?

If the engine won't start I started with a replacement battery. No joy. Then a mechanic suggested I replace the starter solenoid. Happy day. It was ugly to replace (tucked up under the "dog house") but quite inexpensive. Very gratifying to turn the ignition key and hear the engine start.

Need a little more info. What chassis do you have Ford or Workhorse?

We assume you are talking about, when you turn the key to the on position, you get not power to the dash lights or radio and the starter is not engaging.

If it is a Workhorse P32 chassis, I would say the ignition switch could have failed. This is not the key ignition, but a switch located on the steering column near the bottom. This would only apply if it is a P32 chassis. I'm not sure the Intruder model was built on a P32 chassis.
Anyway, once you give us a better picture of your problem, and what chassis we are talking about, I'm sure a lot more people will chime in.
Could be something as simple as cleaning battery connections.
