Hello, my name is***** usually means the ignition switch has failed, not sending power to those fuses. Check to see if the 2 amp radio fuse has power with key in on position, if not then replace ignition switch. This would be around 200 to have done at a shop. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
