Check fuses, relays, connectors, etc.. It may sound strange but i have heard stories about machines that sat for a long time that actually had mice nesting in them and chewing on things!! If i were you i would start by pulling off some plastics and tracing any wires you can while checking for corrosion or damage..

After visual inspection, if nothing changes get a volt meter and start from the battery and work out from there checking for voltage on each circuit out towards the end.
