Begin with a multi-meter at the fuse boxes and check for voltage at each fuse controlling the items which do not work/function. You have to find where, within the circuits you have voltage, then check backward to find the problem.

No power going. Into truck but battery celluloid starter all good no electrical checked grounds positive side under hood has power now what
