  1. I have a similar problem with my car and it turned out to be faulty fuse wiring. Get a fuse tester (they are under 10bucks at autopart stores) and just see if any of the fuses don’t register a current aka-they’re blown. Finding bad fuses is a good lead into if the wires or wiring need attention.
