So had this problem with the car since i got it. i have several things that dont have power and i just cant figure it out. Granted i hate wiring so I get frustrated and say screw it...lol.

NON of the follow work....

1. Brake lights or Turn Signals (they do light up when the headlights are turned on)
2. Power windows
3. Blower motor for the heater (manual controls)
4. Digital Dash


Yes Ive replaced all the fuses , yes I have checked all the fuseable links.

The car sat for many years so I am wondering if a rodent got in and chewed some wires. Really the main things I wished worked are the Brake lights, turn signals, and the windows.

Grounds. There are so many grounds and they need to be cleaned for the electrics to work.
FSM has a list.
Also, the wiring connectors/plugs. Those contacts can also use a little cleaning.

I have a set of these

I know I have cleaned all the engine bay grounds when i had the motor out. The interior is gutted minus the seats and dash and I have cleaned every ground i can find inside the car.

My buttons on the left hand side of the console arent plugged in because the switch broke. Right before it broke i was able to get the hazard button to work and make the lights flash so I know the bulbs just arent burnt on the brake lights. But that doesnt explain the loss of power to everything else.
