Thanks for the response. The Chilton manual was very unclear on this issue, and although I am an electrician, I'm not a car mechanic. Your electrics are not impossible to understand, just takes a different thought process and a lot of investigation and patience for problem solving.
That being said, after posting the question and while waiting for a response, I went in to the interior fuse block and started checking fuses. Came to find out that the lighter/power fuse was no good and the body fuse was also out. I know there are spares in the engine compartment fuse block, but like to keep those there in case I'm on the road and something goes that absolutely needs to be replaced now to keep going. So off to the parts store I went, bought 5 each 20a and 10a fuses, replaced bad ones, problem solved.
Thanks for the quick response and the spot on problem solving. Any questions in the future I'll be sure to come back and also to recommend you to other back yard mechanics.
