Sounds like a fuse issue. Locate your fuse panel, either under the hood or under the dash. The back of the fuse panel will have a guide to let you know what fuse is which. Look for the lighter or outlet fuses and pull them. If they are blown then simply replace with the same type of fuse.

you need to take it off and on the side there is a hole spray some dw40 or switch cleaner in the hole and shake it about a bit in side the sensor. then drain it out. and leave to dry. should be fine then. give it a few turns before putting back on and then set it back to bottom and refit to the markings on the side of the intake. if there is none make some before removing it.
