Hello, since the thermostat does not light up you need to use a multimeter to check for 24volt power to it at the thermostat terminal strip inside the furnace... tell me how many wires are attached and to what terminals

no reset button, power surges damage electronics, you can try removing the thermostat from its sub base however and if it a model in that series that has batteries... fit them in backwards, wait 5 minutes then reinsert them correctly.
