The correct soluation to any automotive problem is a correct diagnosis. In your case, this is exactly what is needed, not heresay or by guess or by golly. I am not being smart about this, it's just that I have spent 35 years as a professinal auto technitian and have seen this situation time and time again.
If you are not able to do the diagnosis your self, you need the help of someone who can do a hands on diagnosis for you.
1. Start at the battery. Do not replace as a meanings of repairing. Verify. If the battery has power, then begin to look at the cables, and then look at fuseable links. These are heavy wires coming off the battery that act as fuses. They burn on the inside of the wire, but many times one can not tell unless they they them with a 12 volt circuit tester.
When using a 12 volt circuit tester, follow the power trail. Start at the battery and determine where it is and where it is not.
This is a start, and I hope it works.
