No power?!

So I've got a new starter, fairly new alternator, and 6month old battery. This morning, I hit the ignition, an it just clicked with no response, chimes, lights, nothing. I tested the battery and it's pushing 12v

So anyone wanna point me in a good direction?

It's most likely a bad wire.check all your grounds. Also wires to alt and starter.

Also make sure your battery cables are tight and *clean*.

This happened to me too, check your ignition wired near the battery and check te battery cables, if there not all the way down it won't start

Thanks for the help everyone. It was a bad ground. The terminals I bought were painted and it wasn't giving it a good ground. It's working for now. I'll have to crimp some better terminals later.
