Most issues like this are a blown fuse. Check all the fuses in the fuse box. Your fuses are called "pill" fuses. They have a band that will break in the center when the fuse blows also with a car like yours and the age the tops of the fuses wear and corrode so power does not transfer correctly. Check all your fuses to see if they are broken or blown (same thing) and rotate them. Like roll them on the holder. Sometimes it helps to make better contact. Here is a link to what your fuses look like. Copy and paste it.
Your fuse box should be on the kick panel on the passenger side of the car. Hope this information helps here is also the fuse box link. The fuse list is on the back of the cover.
