Check all the ground cables and wires. Then inspect the wiring harness, you will need a mulitmeter, your looking for an "open" a circuit which can't conduct current because a wire is NOT connected or has broken, A shorted circuit will burn / blow FUSE(S). If you're unable to test or understand electrical schematics I suggest you have this done by an EXPERT not the corner shop. Regards
