Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the vehicle is nearly electrically dead then the most likely cause would be a dead battery, assuming the connections are clean and tight. If connections are ok then the next thing I would recommend is trying a jump start (not always reliable), swapping in a known good battery, or having this battery load tested.

I solved the problem a while ago. Terminals were clean and tight I had power at the fuse box but was completely dead everywhere else it was like the battery was disconnected. The issue was the BMS ( battery monitoring system) once the battery downs below a certain voltage it goes into a lock out mode and cuts the power to everything. I tried to jump start it but still remained locked out. I found that if I removed the neg terminal put jumper cable on the pos and one on the block I could start the truck then refit the neg terminal. This got me home. Just thought I'd let you know as it may help in the future. 04 to current ford f150 are fitted with this system. Thanks for your help tho
