I was going to suggest checking the engine main as well as the 40 amp and 30 amp fuses.

fuses are good tested with meter. there is a set of 3 that are on a block on the pos. cable post, the black one in the middle is stuck in place. but "looks" clean and can see in the window on top, has no burn look.
