Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I’d like to try and help. On your issue I would check the battery connections and shut off switch connections. If those are fine then check the cab pass thru main pos and ground studs then disconnect the cab pass thru connector and make sure there is no water inside. This is usually where the problem is. I hope this helps. Thank you
