check the fuses


I would check the fuses. Try passenger side switch see if it works , Test the drivers side switch it is a switch to ground so you will not see any power at the switch. The door lock actuator will have 2 wires going to it you can disconnect it and use a test light and connect it in place of the door lock actuator, operate the switch and check if the light turns on when you operate the door lock switch. If it does you have confirmed that your switch , fuse and wiring are good and the actuator is bad. If this is the case it would be odd to have both actuator to go out at the same time. Assuming you checked the fuses I would test the switch next then move to the actuator.

Yes i chacked the fuses is t here a realy in the system. Both doors the locks and both windows dont work.

Both doors and windows dont work i mean


I would check your master window / door lock switch and connections to it. Does the drivers side switch have a lock on it to lock the passenger side window and locks? I would start my test there at the drivers side switch and move toward the relays I don't think your truck has a body control module but it might I would need to look at the wiring diagram.

Wheres the master switch your talking about


Drivers side switch is always considered the master switch. All the grounds for power locks and power windows go thought it for both the drivers side and passenger side. if you have verified you have power to the windows and locks you will also need to verify the ground is there as well.
