Check the circuit breaker. If it's a 2 door its above the passenger window switch

If it's a 4 door it's beside your hazard light switch.

If neither of those, check the fuse.

You can short the circuit breaker to test once it is thawed. I mean run a wire to test in between contacts and check whether if they go up or down.
