That cheesy little Haynes still has an almost complete wiring diagram. 
Follow it around from the ign switch to the things that are working (the
ones you mention run off the Load Reduction Relay) and the things that
aren't, maybe you will find a few "hot spots" worth digging into and
checking for continuity.  You don't mention if the car cranks or just
does nothing?
