All of the dead circuits have the ignition switch in common. Check for overheated contacts and terminals in the switch connector. Darkened terminals can be cut out of the melted plastic connector body and be replaced individually. About 4 inches of wire should also be replaced on the two overheated wires. Those sections will be stiff and difficult to solder to.
