Try a scrap yard (pick and pull) just try to find an enire new control board. You can mess with the batteries and all the other stuff but your best bet is to try and pullonhe yourself or bring to a dealership. Hope this helps

You are probably correct with the fuse, but you can sometimes find the boards in pick and pulls for next to nothing. Definetly try the fuse first though
