2004 Ford Escape problems

When I open the door there’s no dash lights or noises at all, when I goto start it there is zero noise, nothing happens at all, the battery has charge and isn’t the problem, I tried to jump the solenoid and that didn’t work at all. Any ideas on what could possibly be the problem

Bad battery connections or cables or ground.

How do you know the battery “has charge”?

Remove and clean battery terminals. See if it helps.

Check the main fuse. Did anything happen just prior to this problem? Did someone try jumpstarting it for example? Swap batteries?

Check the negative battery cable ground connection.
