It could be the fuse, but both are not on the same circuit. These trucks are bad for creating leaks under the windshield and water dripping on the GEM inside the cab behind the fuse box. Use a flashlight and look up and behind the fuse box. If there is any traces of water at all, reseal the windshield and replace the GEM, which is the module mounted on the back of the fuse box. It is very, very, very common on these models.
