Default Dead 06 xA..

Hey, so went to start the xA yesterday and it's 100% dead. I put the battery charger on it all day and checked back when I got home from work and the battery had 12v but nothing would happen when the key was turned. No dash lights no noise from anything and the headlights wont even turn on.
Checked all fuses and the fusible links with multimeter and verified voltage across links. Took the battery out and put in it my iS300 and it started it just fine. I've done my searching but haven't come across a problem like this. its acting like there is no battery at all.

Have you checked the other ends of both battery cables? I've seen ground (and positive) cables rot or break off and that'll give you those exact symptoms.
