My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If your battery is weak still I would have it tested to see if it needs replaced.Low voltage from a weak battery can cause an issue like this here.If this is or was checked and found to be o.k. let me know.Check and make sure all fuses are o.k. in all fuse panels as well.If there is one or more blown fuses this will need replaced to correct this fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
