OEM Heated Grip Problem

My '07 Wee came with the OEM heated grips installed by the previous owner. I tested them when I bought the bike last May and they worked fine, but I haven't touched them since. I switched them on a couple days ago, and they're non-functional. I took the fairing off and checked the connection by the radiator, and it seems solid, so logic is telling me it might be a fuse issue, but the fuses all looked good (I only eyeballed them. I haven't checked them with a circuit tester yet). Does anyone know which fuse the stock heated grip connecter runs through, or could there be something else going on?

It's the signal fuse. If it is blown, you won't have turn signals or brake lights. It's more likely you have an open circuit. The grips are in series so a bad connection or broken wire will take both out.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thanks. It looks like water must have been getting into the temp control somehow. It was all rusted out inside. I swapped it out for an on/off toggle that I had on hand for now and everything seems to be working again.
