Default Where did the power go?

Until yesterday, I was powering my 2 gauge pod using the #3 pin in the heated seat relay port on my fuse panel. My 01 LE doesn't have seated seats so, this is an open port.

This pin is hot with the ignition, well it was until yesterday. When I pull the connector and tap into pin 4, in diagram/pin 5, in picture, which is hot all the time, the gauges work.

This is also the trigger point for the relay to my fog/driving lights after I bypassed my MFS.

Can someone help find my lost my power?

i think before i looked anything up or investigated, i would start by wiggling the steering wheel up and down, and then checking the under hood fuses, as well as the grey connector behind the inside fusebox

with the key on of course

After reading that, I know it's a white wire. I still don't know where the power is.

check fuse #6 inside and check the socket for power. it's the only white wire listed as "fused ignition switch output (run)"

fuses sockets 5, 6, and 7 are all powered together so if 6 is dead, see it 5 and 7 are as well... if so, check fuse 4 underhood.
