Possibly the simplest thing,,,, a bad connection at the battery or a major ground wire. That or you could have accidentally bumped the kill switch, Done that myself.

I would look for a simple groiund shorting out as well, mine did it and welded the negative wire to the battery when it worked its way loose, I also hit the kill switch by mistake once, phused it a block to work before I figured it out!
