Have you removed the door panels to see if the linkage has come apart?

You need to remove the driver's door panel and check for power to the main switch.

I took the driver side door panel off and saw that everything was connected. No wires were loose or broken. I also took the passenger door panel off and found the same thing. Locks still wont work

Under the hood is a power distribution box. Check for a door lock relay and switch it with another relay with the same part number to see if that helps.

Everytime you flip the switch you can hear a clicking sound coming from the relay.
