If you aren't getting power to the interior fuse box you'll need to check the fusible links under the hood. These are the clear topped square fuses, one or more of them could be blown. It's also possible the wires have rusted off the terminals, but I would look at the fusible links first, more than likely one of them is blown. If you aren't getting any electrical power to anything the main link is usually the culprit.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
