Hello. The first thing I would do is check the fuses. If there is one blown fuse then there may be many more. The only time a fuse will blow is if the jumper cables are installed backwards. If the fuses are fine then it may be a failure in the ignition switch. I have seen a lot of ignition switch failures on this vehicle which will cause these exact issues. I would usually test for power to all of the ignition circuits to see if it is failing.
