check your battery cables and their connections.

check your main power wire it sounds like your problem. It connects to the battery at the positive post and is a red wire maybe a number 10 size wire.

don't forget negative bat cable connections ( both ends ) and grounding straps... Also, if EVERYTHING is dead, put a meter on the battery and check is easy to leave door open or some other current drain when prepping and painting a car ...
