you will need a wiring diagram if you want to do this yourself- then just read it- start at the battery, go downstream and check for power at all connections, fuse, relay- often, it's the relay- with a schematic you can find the location of the relay- just buying new relays is just guessing- why buy them if they are hot- check everything with your troubleshooting electrical light- I have a Snap On "ice pick" that I have used for years- the sharp end will actually pierce the insulation on a wire to tell if it's hot- this little tool has performed miracles, IF I have the wiring diagram- (BTW- the ignition must be turned on)
