No power to the positive side of the coil wire

Ok so.... I was driving home and the Jeep just stopped. Towed home and after looking found the fuel pump fuse blew. Replaced it 3x and same thing. But I should back up a bit. I replaced the ignition with an MSD 6AL and blaster coil. I ran the wires from the original pos and neg of the original coil wires. Ran great. 3 weeks later is when it stopped. Found the fuse issues as talked about. Finally saw I had radiator fluid from the heater hose dripping on the splice at the old coil wires. Re-spliced with water proofing. Then it still wouldn't start. Looked under and in the main fuse box by the batt. Found a melted wire. Spliced and replace. Still nothing. Then I traced the wired from the MSD 6AL back and found the wire slipped under the batt and was ground in out. (probably the main issues in the first place). Fixed that. Now still won't start. Turns over but no start. Put a test light up to the positive wire at the old coil. No power. Checked all the fuses, good. Please help. I'm at my witts end and about to have a mechanic look at it. By the way it's a 1993 Jeep wrangler.

So incase anyone has this same problem, it ended up being the ignition switch under the dash. The wasn't power running from the switch to the fuse box under the hood. Replaces a wire and turned over on the first try.
