Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

If the battery is still fine, and you have no power to the helm, there is a fuse or a breaker right near the battery that you will need to check or replace. Then after that, it the engine will not crank, check the main breaker located at the top of the engine and make sure that it is reset. If the trim has stopped working as well, the battery may be the source of the issue.
