Hi my name is Robert....

DO you have a battery disconnect switch near the entry door? IF so and you hit that switch do you hear a click away from the switch each time you press it? IF you have good battery voltage at the batteries and do not have your power then it could be the disconnect solenoid, the switch triggers the solenoid and sometimes they can stick and you will get no power, you would need to have that interior disconnect switch to have the solenoid..... Let me know and I can direct you some more...
