    If everything is going out (no lights, no nothing) then you probably have a loose or grounding primary wire, main fuse that is loosing connection, or something along those lines.

    I would suggest checking all harnesses for dmg, cleaning and greasing all connections.

    Oh, and make sure your battery cables are tight.
