Do you have a volt meter?

It sounds like you do not have low voltage present. There are a few possible causes for this.

Water in the pan under the indoor coil can flip a float switch and turn off power to the thermostat. This is caused by a backed up drain.

The low voltage wire to the outdoor unit can get damaged and pop a low voltage fuse or low voltage breaker in the indoor unit. The sun, a weed eater, rodents, dogs or the hot gas line by the compressor often cause this issue.

Batteries in the thermostat should be checked if present.

Many gas furnaces have a conventional light switch next to them that kills power.
This switch is often accidentally turned off if someone is working near the furnace.

Some gas furnaces will display a blinking light that helps determine if the furnace has power or if the low voltage fuse is popped.
