Link cable between the batteries, dirty or corroded terminals? What about AA/RAC/Greenflag homestart membership? They can probably sort that out fairly easily, unless you've been messing about and broken something? If the batteries both went dead, then a fault caused that unless the batteries were old and clapped out.

Most cars have a chassis ground bolt and thick wire from there to the battery negative terminal. Is that connected? Maybe time for a breakdown tow to the garage?

The links that goto the fuse box Underhood the the built in fuses It's like 1 50 2 80s and 1 2000 failed a continuity test the only thing that would work are the interior lights and the running lights so I took all those links out looking for them to quit working and they didn't so I may have found the issue so I ordered them and they'll be here in about 7 hours I'm gong to reconnect them and hopefully that works I'll keep you posted thanks for the reply

Those fuses are the last resort (before smoke & fire) so something really bad must have happened? If I lost just one of those I'd really want to know why, because they are feeders for the secondary fuse blocks. If you had dropped a wrench across the fuse busbar, that would be a plausible explanation. Have you tested for a short back from each fuse holder when open? If you don't and a serious fault is still there, your new fuses will just go 'pop'.
