Did you check the fuse links? They are on the positive cable. They usually blow when something like this happens.

I agree with Caddy, probably blown fusible links. Get that battery secured lol

Sounds like a day for the good old continuity tester to shine! I'd listen to those guys about fuse links, but def grab a multi meter it'll ease your pain.
