Default no power to cabin!!!

I have a 2006 Ram 2500 with a 5.9L, I currently have no electrical power getting to the cabin, no interior lights, gauges, radio, power seats, horn, door locks, etc. The only thing that still has power is the power windows. I replaced the integrated power control module knowing that there has been problems with this in the past and still no power is getting through. I would really appreciate thoughts on this!!!

It is not blowing any fuses and no burning smells. I pulled apart all of the harnesses today and put back together. Now the headlights are coming on, the power windows work and the fan blower is coming on. Still no power to the instrument cluster, cabin lights or radio. And yes the motor starts and runs. Starting to wonder if it is being caused by a malfunction in the ignition circuit. Thanks

back probe the harness connector that bolts together on the left of the drivers foot-well, check for voltage on both sides.

^^^^^^what he said. if some of it is working after doing all that you must be on the right track. don't forget to inspect all the pins in the connectors to make sure they are all making contact.

Default update!

Checked power to the wire harnesses and connectors in both the cabin and under the hood, I was getting power sometimes and then would check again and was not getting power of various pins of multiple connectors. To make a long process short. I checked at the ECM and same issue there. I took the ECM and had it re-flashed. So far seems to have fixed the problem, getting consistent power everywhere. Appreciate all the help. Thanks
