Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The items you mentioned that are not working are all operated from the stator or alternator on the engine. I would check to make certain that the wiring hasn't come unplugged. The stator wire normally comes out of the engine housing around the electric start area. If the wiring is all still in good condition then the stator or alternator may have gone bad. You can check it with a volt meter while the engine is running.
