Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. What is the chassis make and model and also the ambulance body make and model from the installer? First test all fuses for power on both sides with a volt meter or test light with the key/ignition power on. Any with power only on one side are bad. You probe the two metal terminals on the top of each fuse. Checl all relays by swapping one at a time with a known good one. If that all tests okay, thoroughly inspect all wiring and connector pins for corrosion and damage as well as all grounds. Test power to the switches for these accessories and if none go back to the fuses and test. Look for any inline fuses from the installter that might have failed. Let me know.
