sounds like a fuse blew, they have open connections on the back that can cause a short. have to find the feed fuse, sometimes its on the same panel sometimes its on a different one.

i think the breakers are thermal resetting and if it was that it would reset when it cooled. normally they put those on motor circuits like fans. if i had to guess it would be one of the bigger ones, "maxi" fuses if your vehicle had those

crisis averted!! as I stared into the fuse and breaker box I noticed that one of the middle connector box was lower than the two on the ends. it had slipped past it'* tabs that hold it up. I reset it up in position and it connected. very thing works fine. in my haste and panic to plug it back in the first time I must have pushed too hard. feel stupid! lesson learned. till next time. thanks Justin!
