Hello, this can seem very strange I am sure, but there are a couple of possibilities here.

First, it seems almost clear that your battery has lost it's ability to power any of the vehicle's functions. This can be because of a few different causes, including but not limited to:

1) Battery has failed and is suddenly unable to hold a charge

2) The charging system has failed, resulting in the battery completely discharging

3) A light or electronic operation was left running overnight inadvertently, resulting in the battery completely discharging

4) A parasitic draw of unknown origin has run the battery down completely.

The testing should start with the battery. First attempt to charge it and get it to a full charge, and then have it tested to see if it can handle a load. If either or neither are possible, then, replace your battery first before continuing testing.

Once you have a known good battery, you can test for the other things. Good luck!
