It sounds like a common ground is broken or has corrosion . There's gotta be two wires connected for electricity to flow-a positive and a negative(Common ground). Try to find a wiring diagram for your vehicle that shows the common ground points, and then check those points on your vehicle. You might wanna try www.alldatadiy.com for an electrical diagram. However, using this site, you would have to pay a subscription for the service. Best wishes! -Jackie
