No it has never been wet I will check the connections for corrosion but the battery is only 6 months old and they still look like new

Bad chassis grounds can cause loss of electrical power. The chassis grounds may be on the right side of the vehicle under the passenger seat to the left of the battery. That connection is down low where it can easily get wet even by going through puddles during or after a rain. Given that probably the last time that connection had any attention was 2016 it's possible the rust/corrosion has built up. There are several wires connected to the chassis at that point. I suggest removing the wires, cleaning the connections spraying with Boeshield or a similar product and reinstalling to see if power is restored. A simple external examination of the connections isn't sufficient.

Removed all wires from ground stud and battery. Sanded clean (they we not bad at all). Put dielectric grease on them and put back together. Same problem as before. Any other ideas? Thanks for you help

At this point I don't think there is any "easy" fix. Nothing to do but begin testing. You mighty start with swapping out some relays with a known good one. Relays are inexpensive and that's an easy troubleshoot technique. Also check fuses/breakers. Also be certain to check the starter relay and associate connections. You owner's manual will have locations of most. I also suggest obtaining a digital Service Manual available as a download.

If that doesn't fix the problem I start inspecting wiring harnesses and connectors looking for damage or corroded/burned connectors. Pull each connector apart inspect, carefully clean without bending pins, apply dialectic grease and reassemble, including connectors to the ECM. Next check the ignition switch with an ohmmeter. If still no joy the rest is just work using a tester and wire tracing.

I know this may sound a bit dumb, check the accessory fuse. This could be your main culprit, if not there check relays
Checked accessory fuse and circuit breaker. New ignition switch, battery ,regulator and 5 new relays will be here tomorrow. So far same problem
