Question about 2006 Ford F-150
If you pull the driver's side door sill, you should find a splice ( 1 wire to 2 wires ) that is corroded.
Some what common, water gets into the door sill and cannot drain out, and the splices pay the price.
You will need to cut the splice apart, solder in a new piece of wire, and you will want to use marine heat shrink tubing on them.
This is the typical ( not only ) locations

Might want to check the driver's side door sill for a splice that is corroded.
In the SCab, I have seen this closer to the driver's side kick panel, where the hood release is at ( still in the door sill ), on the SuperCrew, I have seen this splice at the back, where the wires turn up the C-pillar.
Here are some pictures from other people that had this problem.
The front, the wire with the bad splice was reported to be a blue w/ White stripe wire.
When it is found in the back, it is a violet wire
If you check the fuses for those items, you will find the fuses are fine, but when you check the switch for the item, there is no power.
It will take some time, but checking for a broken splice, that is not obvious, but the chance is high you will find one in the sea of wires in the door sill.
