Check for a blown main fuse in fuse box under the hood.


And thats the box on top of the battery right


If there is a box on top of your battery check it out to see if there is a fuse inside but the box I am talking about is usually mounted on one of the fender walls. Looks like a big black box with writing on the cover showing what fuses are it.
