Battery is good, no power from battery to anything else and of course will not start either. Thinking we have a bad connection or blown fuse we cannot find. We need a book to research the problemk, an owners manual or parts manual...in english. Any ideas?

what transmission,? this can be 3 things, if it wont jump and batter is good. bad connections at battery or starter. 1: bad starter. 2: bad (A/T shift switch) or bad M/T clutch switch. 3 bad ignition switch. 4: bad wire or connections end to and start system.
hot wire the starter solenoid, if car starts (cranks) then its 2 o 3.
This sounds like a bad starter, it has dead spots and when it lands on one sometimes the jump starting will make it start due to extra power, check to be sure the battery is good then make sure the battery connections are good and if all of that looks good then its got to be the starter, you will need to test it, a testlight will be needed to do this, you will need someone to hold the key in the crank postion and you will use the test light to check for power at the starter, there are to cable going to starter a big one and a small one. the big cable that connects to the starter comes from the battery and has power at all times, then theres a small wire, this is the wire you check, you will see it bolts or slides onto connector on the back of the starter, with key in the crank postion test for power at the small wire if theres power then the starter is bad, good luck, hope this helps.
Get a voltmeter or test light. Open the fuse panel in the engine compartment and see if you have voltage there. Check the main fuse. Look closely at the battery connection to see if one of the accessory power wires came off. Lastly, check to make sure you have a good ground connection on the engine and frame and that you have continuity to the negative battery post.
Problem sounds like it's in the power feed from the battery. Try a different battery (may be an intermittent plate or post connection problem in the battery). Also check the fusible link in the cable connected to the positive battery terminal, and check both battery cables from end to end as well as their connectors.
