MCD shade issue

I am in British Columbia with no cell and very little internet. I canít search but did manage to get this far after 30 minutes.
My passenger side night shades (door and window) quit working. All other shades work correctly. The drivers side works normally. I know these three are setup differently than others with the ignition wire. Are these all on the same fuse, or should I look for a different fuse. We are driving to Watson Lake YT today and Iím hoping to have Wi-Fi tonight.

Any help is appreciated.

I would check the fuse first, then make sure you have power at the switch and going thru the switch when pressed on. If all that is good the relay for that shade is above the wood holding the shades. The shades clip into a metal holder (use a long screw driver to push on the side that sticks out). There are 2 per shade. Have a few bungies or line to hang them as the wires are not long. #2 square drive to remove the wood panel. You will see the relay in the mess of wires. They use wire nuts so check all of them. I did this to disable the ignition signal that disables the shade operation when driving. Wife is much happier now. Did the same thing to drivers side. All relays have a diagram on them for connections and trouble shooting. Hope this helps. Here is a picture of the drivers side, both are the same.
