2008 F150 Lariat. No power drivers side seat and no power…

Customer Question
2008 F150 Lariat....

2008 F150 Lariat. No power drivers side seat and no power mirrors. Passenger seat works. tons of water in the gutters on both sides under kick pads. mirrors also will fold in and out. Thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistant

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Checked fuses - ok - drained water from gutters. Repaired orange/green wire splice at fuse box

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think thats it

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having is more than likely going to be a faulty ground, since these components share the same ground. Here, I am attaching the electrical diagram for both circuits to give you a better understanding. The circuits will need testing to see where you are or are not receiving power or ground.
