The first thing i would check are fuses and look for loose grounds, i had similar problems on a saturn and it was just a loose ground wire.

Check the batt do you need to clean the terminals? Check for loose grounds, there should be 3 major ones in the engine bay.

if your starter and alternator wire are burt then your are grounding them somewhere. they will not blow any fuses because they are directly to the battery.
