Have you tested fuel pressure or spark at all?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
no, why would that cause window and radio to not work
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

Just in case this was a separate issue with the no start.

Do you have battery voltage on these fuses listed:

40 amp IGN 2

30 amp P/WIN

80 amp MAIN

10 amp Rr. Wiper
