2002 Focus SE Wagon, No Dome Lights or Power Mirrors

My dome lights and power mirrors are not working on my 2002 Focus SE Wagon. Below is the troubleshooting I have done and any help would really be appreciated.

1. Checked all fuses, including 34,35. I pulled each fuse and tested with an ohmmeter and specifically tested 34,35 including replacing each with known good fuses.

2. Checked the Battery Saving Relay and it tested fine (it energizes and contact closes). To verify I swapped the relay with the one beside it just to make sure it was not the relay.

3. Used a voltmeter to check voltage to and from the fuse. 12V exiting fuse.

4. Placed a jumper across the relay 3 and 5 (Normally Open Contact point) to verify that once again it was not the relay contact.

5. Traced the orange/blue wire to the junction box on the driver side floor panel and opened/removed box. With the box apart from the fuse to the box there is 12V on the orange/blue wire. Once the box is connected the wire exiting the box and running in to the floor board has a voltage on it of 0.4volts. This leads me to believe that there is a bad connector somewhere from there leading to the lights/mirrors.

6. Door switch was tested and does enable the interior "dinging" sound when the keys are in the ignition.

7. I also temporarily ran a jumper from the battery to the orange/blue right on the front dome light and it light up perfectly as well as the rear dome light (wagon) to verify the bulbs and the connection between the 2 dome lights.

8. I also tried this jumper on the black/blue wire (door switch) to the front dome light and although it did light up it was dim.

From what I can tell there seems to be a short or bad connection somewhere after the junction box located on the drivers side and the dome lights. I started to trace the orange/blue wire down the driver side floor panel however do not want to rip apart the entire car to find the issue.

It almost seems like there is a connector that would contain the orange/blue wire and the black/blue wire that is corroded,broken,etc. however that is just speculation. My other option which I don't want to do is go to a wreckers and trace the entire wiring assembly.

From the above information does anyone have any suggestions as it is getting frustrating trying to find this issue. Thanks in advance!
