Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

is fuse 29 good and do you have 12 volts on both sides of the fuse? please use volt meter!!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
11.66 volts
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

while cranking do you have 12 volts on fuse 28?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
power on all fuses except 32 34 43
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

ok then you need to look in back of the fuse box the same wire powers 28 powers 34 and 43 and you need to find the issue of that same wire!! its a blue wire. on the relay plate you will see a #87 to a threaded lug make sure that is tight if so you need to trace that wire from the relay plate to the fuse box!! then you will find your power issue!!!
