Besides what you posted, what else have you tried? Any downstream fuses blown? Check ground straps. Assuming your battery is good and you have voltage after SBF 3,4,5. Do you have a wiring diagram? Check main relay. Any smell of burnt electronics?

I'd have to guess on rodent damage. Except if the constant power lines in the fender were shorted I would think the fuses would have blown again. Unless the wires need to be wiggled just right.

Did it rain overnight?

You should really use a battery charger to get the battery charged back up again instead of relying on the alternator to do it.
