Maybe you just need to clean all the fuse contacts with electrical contact cleaner from a spray can.
Then pull off every electrical spade teminal you can find and squeeze the female terminal together with needle nose pliers a little so it fits tighter on the male terminal if it's a little loose. Spray it with contact cleaner first and see if it gets any better.

Then theres a bunch of those round rubber electrical plugs with the split male terminals in the car. One of them comes off the ignition switch and plugs into a rubber socket plug around 8 inches away in the chassis leading to the other side into the front trunk. Look up under the dah and you'll see it nearby the back side of the ignition switch.
If you unplug that one, even partially, the car won't start or run so it's one of many that need to be checked and the split male pins can be spread a little with a knife blade so they contact the metal in the female plug pin holes better.
