Engines start but no blower, radio, lights, etc...

Breakers (if that is what is under the small rubber caps) are in, not sure what else to check

Please advise!!

There are more fuses in the engine compartment. Lift the hatch and they are mounted on the wall under the hatch where you lift it. There's a round cap on each box. I can go out and take a pic if needed.

Your accessory fuse is missing or blown. You'll find it next to the battery sometimes mounted to the wall.

do you hook/unhook your battery cables? if so maybe you didn't hook the accessory wire onto the battery, I've got four positive cables to hook up every time.

My phone was dying at the time, so I did not type a thank you...
You guys are awesome, thank you very much for the quick responses!

The first thing I did was check the breakers, none were popped.
Then I looked behind the dash to try and locate a fuse.
Then I unhooked the battery for a few minutes. (All 4 wires to pos, all 4 to neg.)
Then used a few choice words and grabbed my phone to create this thread.

I'm not sure what the fuses are in the engine compartment behind those round screw-off covers, but they were all fine.
@Murf'n'surf and @itsdgm were right on the money, I blew the accessory fuse.
My truck uses little tiny fuses, and I didn't have any spare normal ones so we went without all accessories for the rest of the day.
Thankfully the engines still cranked!

Picked up spares on the way home, so we're all ready for next time :)

Thanks again guys, I really appreciate it.

Awesome! I didn't know there was a fuse in that location until this thread. Learned something new yet again.
