I forgot to list I also had my ECM reflashed so I believe there might be a problem with the ECM not communicating with the body module and there is also a fuse it is a 15 amp ignition fuse it is position 21 in the under hood fuse block I am NOT getting any power to either side of that fuse checked with meter checked with test light no voltage going to. The fuse is not blown can you please tell me where the source voltage comes from any help would be appreciated thank you for your reply

Fuse Position # 21 should be TRANS SOL - Torque Converter Clutch (TCC)
