Hi, My name is***** you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.
you may have melted a wire.
What you want to do is check for power through the fuse.
If there's power through the fuse follow the wiring through the harness until you find where power stops.
I'd bet you'll find a burnt wire in this problem.
