Q: All the electrics failed, is it toast?

asked by on

All of the electrical systems failed in my 2009 Dodge Ram pickup. Obviously the truck is useless when there are no blinkers and the doors will not unlock! This is not acceptable for a truck with only 105,000 miles on it! I know it is an electrical problem, otherwise all of the parts broken would have had to fail at the same time. How do I go about finding the problem when nothing works? I really need to use my truck!
