This started with the remote entry not working and now includes almost every circut, the owner is some miles from me and asked for help.

Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.
Clean and tighten battery cable connections and check battery ground, engine ground-should be a ground strap from engine to the body or frame. If this happens and you have nothing, no headlights, nothing-it's almost certainly a problem at or right off the battery.
It is on the steering column, below the ignition lock cylinder.
Before changing the switch, pull the electrical connector apart for the switch, and check for a power signal into the switch.
Probably a fusible link off the battery supplies power to the switch. Check that you have one hot wire going to the switch-one wire should have power available on it at all times. If no power to switch, check fusible links. If there is power available, then go ahead and replace the switch.
I had the exact same problem. Everything checked out ok at the garage including the earths. Finally we discovered that it is very easy to push the bulbs in in the wrong position and they will work but they are too dim. There is only one way that they are supposed to fit in, as soon as we got them slotted in correctly - bingo, dazzling headlights!
Is the ground for the engine and the battery clean and working properly check at point of connection with test light to see if all grounds are OK and make sure no positive cable are bare and touching metal causing a ground fault and blowing fuse . check wires at battery and going to starter some times wires will burn through and touch other wires or metal causing a direct ground. good luck
