Dear costumer you had already checked the state of the battery and fuses?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
I can't test the battery
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 18 days ago.

Dear costumer is very probably that the issue is at the battery, maybe some eddy current that discharged it or the battery is already useless, so i recommend to replace it soon as is possible before making any other checking.

I hope this info to be helpful, my goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.

Kind regards, Sebastian.
