Hello - this sounds like a real mess! Check fuses first of course, to eliminate the simple problems. Then, it’s time to break out the electrical diagnostic equipment and dive into the wiring. There are likely multiple wiring and/or connector issues here. I would recommend having a Electrical Problems Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
