Do you have 12v to the main nut in the TIPM? When did this start? Will anything work, lights, horn, etc?

problem started with no crank had to boost vehicle multiple times then no charging at battery but 14.5 volts at alternator then while tested it shut down and everything is dead no interior light no horn no lights total power loss everywhere I've tested
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

If you have 12v at the battery then do you have 12v at the big nut in the TIPM? You may have a burnt fusable link.

Yes sometimes these things are too complicated to fix on your own.. I would schedule an appointment with us at the dealership to get it fixed..

Take care,
