Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

To reset a vehicles electrical system. You remove both battery cables, hold them together for one minute, then 15 minutes later, reconnect them to the battery. Can you try that?
