been doing some more investigating and started fiddling with the fuses.
Took out 7 and 8, and they are getting power... at first 12 volts but now it's more like 3. Probably user error.
Found out that when those fuses are taken out, the rear right brake light stops working altogether. What the heck did some of my wires weld themselves together?! That's starting to sound like more of a possibility. Maybe i should take out that fuse block
