HI,Ok, the first step is to check the fuses. There are a total of 5 to check. Fuse #5 in maxi fuse box located by battery - see attachedFuses #7,#14,#21, and #23 in the driver side fuse box inside the cabin - see attached Check these and replace any that are blown. If all are good, let me know and will go from there
