Try Autozone.com's Web site, they have wiring diagrams for most makes and models, trace out where the ground should be, make a new one if you have to. You may have lost a ground or circuit is shorting to another circuit and grounding out. If you can't see anything visually wrong with wire harness you'll have to pick up a meter and/or continuity checker and trace it out.
