    With all the things listed that are not working, you have to first determine if they are all tied together or separate. If you checked all the fuses, relays and fuse links and they all check out okay, then the other suspect would be the body control module or BCM.
    Check battery connections and work your way to the dash checking connections for power.
    Have the vehicle scanned with a scanner capable of pulling BCM codes. Most generic scanners can't.

    I would mean towards a bad ground, a broken visible link, possibly by the battery or alternator on that vehicle or a bad BCM.

    This type of problem often requires a lot of experience with electrical and diagnostics.
    And time. The time to eliminate other things as the problem.

    If you understand wiring diagrams and are fairly knowledgeable in automotive electrical, then a few parts stores are carrying automotive service information systems and might be able to print out the wiring diagrams for a small fee.

    Should say, I would lean towards a bad ground, a broken fusible link, possibly by the battery or alternator on that vehicle or a bad BCM.
