Sounds like a blown fuse, have you checked the fuses?

Check fuse #17 in the dash fuse box. If it is blown, replace the fuse and drive the vehicle unless it blows instantly. We have seen issues with the wiring in the drivers door jamb where the wiring runs from the door to the body in the rubber boot. We have been seeing wires break and short out with each other causing the same problem.
