My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting 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.
Inspect the wiring at and leading along the frame and bed and make sure no wiring was damaged in any way and caused this fault here.I find this is usually the cause and usually with a broken or poor ground.
Thanks Pete
