Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Both sides get their power from the same fuse and grounds are in different locations. You got a wiring issue.

Is that something you feel you are able to find and fix? If so we can walk through it and try to figure it out.

This happens to be my sisters car thought I could give her a hand and trying to figure out what the problem was

That being the case its a simple (though time consuming) issue to resolve.

Pick and end of the wire and figure out where power is lost.

I am attaching a diagram that should help you do that.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you today. THanks
