Default 2002 Civic No Electrical Power

So my Gf's Civic has zero juice. Even when I hook cables up from my car I get nothing, no lights, radio, zip.

Bad battery right?

I don't know why it wouldn't turn over if you have cables hooked up to another car with adequate amount of juice, and I can't imagine a Civic needing a large battery.

Yeah I'm dumbfounded. The battery is about 9 mos old. Car as absolutely no juice. I just don't know what it would be other than battery

Personally, I'd be asking myself why in the hell an 80 amp fuse blew.

Sounds like a simple enough fix for now.

Because there aren't fuses in IT. It's just not something I encounter so beyond scorch marks I didn't know what I was looking for.
