Default Wont start, Wont turn over, no clicking, no lights, Battery is good

Parked my truck one night, opened the door and the cab light did not turn on. I then tried starting my truck again and absolutly nothing. No sounds, no lights, no anything.

battery is still good, and no blown fuses. the past couple days, the truck started up acting like it had a low battery. Tested the battery, and its still good.

What could it be?

EDIT: 1991 ford ranger

check your ground sometimes they might loosen up given you a bad connection

clean your battery terminals and check all your battery and ground connections.

Solenoid, or possible alternator issues. Also could be your ignition switch. (The key turner thingy, names escaping me)

def gunna be a ground/ power issue. is your battery cables loose? also check the ground going to frame and look for corrosion and make sure everything is tight. friend had same problem the other day and his batery cables ended up just being loose. good luck and post wha u find if anything.

If i remember correctly, it happened to me and it was the starter that was bad. The thing where all the spark plug wires go to. But i can't remember if i lost all electrical, lights, when i turned the key. I know it wouldn't start though.
