Richard :

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Richard :

All those functions are controlled by the Body Processor Module. Hopefully this module was not damaged.

Richard :

First we should check the inertia switch and some fuses.

Richard :

Make sure the inertia switch did not trip. This switch is located in the passenger A post kick panel. Just depress the top of it to reset it. Next check fuse #5 (10 amp) in the trunk.

Customer:

I will check these items, and if this does not fix the problem, i will check back with you.
