Hello

If you haven't already then I'd replace the battery with another as I've known batteries to go completely flat and this then damages them and they won't hold a charge or can even short out internally. doesn't happen all the time but its not uncommon

also check the condition of the very high power fuses ( 80a+) in the fusebox as if 1 of these has failed then it will also cut all power
