Hi, I will do my best to assist you. When you are finished please click on accept. I don't get paid unless you do. I don't know if you are a pro or a novice so we may have to fine tune the answer. I only know as much about your problem as you have told me in your post, so my answer will be based on what you have posted. Feel free to add any additional info you feel is needed.

Odds are you just blew a fuse. So I would suggest that you check all the fuses first. If it goes beyond that it is really tough to diagnose the problem. Get out your owners manual to help you locate the fuse box, and the corresponding fuse. You will need to get a good electrical schematic for the vehicle, and start tracing the wiring to see what the problem is. If you have any more questions I am here to help. Good luck, and Thanks for using Just Answer.


I hope this helps, 100% satisfaction is my goal. If the answer is not clear, please reply and I will assist you more. When you're satisfied, click on accept. I don't get paid unless you do. A bonus and positive feedback are always appreciated, good luck and Thanks.
