Ion3 2.2 Vin F 2007 No power
Just got finished rebuilding and installing the head & reconnected the battery to do the first start, saw a small spark and when the remote locks didnt work I assumed I blew a fuse. Then upon further inspection and no blown fuses, there is power at the fuse block and fuses but only dim illumination lights in the car no radio/etc and the illumination is only dim with headlight switch on. Mind you headlights dont turn on either.
Done so far:
Double checked battery connections
Double checked underhood fuses
Double checked engine grounds
Tried a jump
Swapped arround some of the 30amp fuses labeled battery.
Test all fuses for continuity
Triple check all connections on engine/grounds
Any ideas? Not sure what im missing ive searched the forums and web pretty thoroughly . Thanks!

Welcome to SaturnFans, Ryantdixon1996!
What was the voltage reading at the fuse block? Has battery voltage been verified? It is possible to have adequate voltage there while having inadequate cranking capacity to turn the starter. IMHO, if the battery checks out okay then you may need to look for a bad ground wire or perhaps a poor ground connection.

1- Some vehicles have two or three fuse panels. The engine fuse panel has main fuses while the second or third fuse panels are inside the vehicle by the console or foot well.
2- With electronics in many vehicles, disconnecting and reconnecting batteries usually results in some sparks from the surge of power needed for sleeping electronics to wake-up. Normal under most circumstances and usually nothing to worry about except in some instances. If all the fuse panels don't have a blown fuse, try disconnecting battery negative
for 10 seconds then reconnect. All electronics are designed to sleep when power is completely removed like periodic maintenance to disconnect battery power when working on electrical or electronics, battery replacement, dead battery from killing it in freezing winter startups or attempting to weld when inadvertently shorting live wires. When power is restored, electronics sometimes wakes up in a confused state (alarm turns on, horns honk, etc). If this occur either use the remote to turn off factory alarms or disconnect the battery for 10 seconds. Reconnecting should reset all electronics again.
3- If a battery boost didn't help, maybe electronics is confused and needs a complete battery disconnect as suggested in step-2. Worse case scenario is the battery may have a partial charge requiring a full charge before trying everything again.
