Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

Open Question

Rear defrost on 1996 pontiac sunfire does not work

The light on the switch turns on. I have read that there are connectors on the way to the rear window that may corrode. Can anyone describe where they might be? Otherwise, how can you get at the switch in order to test that? There is no voltage at the leads that connect to the window. Any other suggestions?

SOURCE: check engine light for a 1995 pontiac sunfire

OBD 1.5 OBD 1.5 refers to a partial implementation of OBD-II which General Motors used on some vehicles in 1994 and 1995 (GM did not use the term OBD 1.5 in the documentation for these vehicles - they simply have an OBD and an OBD-II section in the service manual.)
For example, the 94-95 Corvettes have one post-catalyst oxygen sensor (although they have two catalytic converters), and have a subset of the OBD-II codes implemented. For a 1994 Corvette the implemented OBD-II codes are P0116-P0118, P0131-P0135, P0151-P0155, P0158, P0160-P0161, P0171-P0175, P0420, P1114-P1115, P1133, P1153 and P1158.[1]
This hybrid system was present on the GM H-body cars in 94-95, W-body cars (Buick Regal, Chevrolet Lumina ('95 only), Chevrolet Monte Carlo ('95 only), Pontiac Grand Prix, Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme) in 94-95, L-body (Chevrolet Beretta/Corsica) in 94-95, Y-body (Chevrolet Corvette) in 94-95, on the F-body (Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird) in 95 and on the J-Body (Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire) and N-Body (Buick Skylark, Oldsmobile Achieva, Pontiac Grand Am) in 95.
Depending on the year and the vehicle, a car with the OBD 1.5 system may have either the older OBD-I connector, or the newer OBD-II connector, but they are electrically identical to each other.[citation needed]
The pinout for the ALDL connection on these cars is as follows:
180px-obd-connector-pinout.png magnify-clip.pngFemale OBD connector pinout 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 For ALDL connections, pin 9 is the data stream, pins 4 and 5 are ground and pin 16 is battery voltage.
Additional vehicle-specific diagnostic and control circuits are also available on this connector. For instance, on the Corvette there are interfaces for the Class 2 serial data stream from the PCM, the CCM diagnostic terminal, the radio data stream, the airbag system, the selective ride control system, the low tire pressure warning system and the passive keyless entry system.[2]
An OBD1.5 has also been used on Mitsubishi cars of '95 '97 vintage.
An OBD1.5 has been used in some 1995 Volkswagen VR6's (Juice Box's GTI)

I have a 94 Chevy C1500 and the right side brake light and blinker are not working. The tail light and reverse light work though, and the right front blinker works but it blinks twice as fast as it...


It could be a bad multifunction (turn signal) switch. The way that switch works, it is possible that it can turn on the front blinker and not the rear one. It also cancels the brake circuit so the turn signal can work with the brake pedal depressed.

However, a more likely cause would be a break in the YELLOW/BROWN wire at the rear of the truck. It is common for the connector to get corroded at the left rear frame area where the bed harness connects to the vehicle harness. If you have trailer connections spliced into the wiring harness, these connections are also prime candidates for corrosion. I would look there first. Inspect these harnesses thoroughly all the way up and into the tail light assembly.

If the wires under the back of the truck look good, then I would check for power coming out of the turn signal switch. The wire at the turn signal switch is plain YELLOW (with no brown tracer). It is Pin (M) on the turn signal switch connector. The front signal is a LIGHT BLUE wire at the turn signal switch Pin (H). If you probe these with a test lamp, they should both work the same except the yellow wire will be hot with the brake pedal depressed and the switch NOT in the left turn position. If there is no power at the switch connector, replace the switch.

The lights get power from somewhere else, not their control button - you will need to access the wire connector at the left cluster and locate the wire that delivers the power and the status of the grounding connection/bolt (most likely it's corroded). Since the cluster of lights above the rear window are the central brake lights only it means that if you get them constantly on then the brake lights are constantly on . To check for that is easy, just test the brake pedal switch.

    Rear Defogger Inoperative, But Heated Mirrors Operate Correctly
    1. Connect scan tool. Turn ignition switch to RUN position. Turn rear defogger on. Using scan tool, display BCM
    outputs. If rear defogger is being requested on, go to next step. If rear defogger is not being requested on, go to
    step 10).
    2. Ensure ignition switch is in RUN position. Remove rear defogger relay from rear junction block, located on center
    right rear of passenger compartment, under rear seat. Connect test light between ground and defogger relay
    harness connector terminal F3 (Brown wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not
    illuminate, go to step 11).
    3. Connect test light between ground and defogger relay harness connector terminal A2 (Red wire). If test light
    illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 12).
    4. Connect test light between defogger relay harness connector terminals A2 (Red wire) and B3 (Purple wire). If test
    light illuminates, go to step 13). If light does not illuminate, go to next step.
    5. Disconnect rear defogger positive and negative feed bus connectors. Connect a jumper wire between defogger
    relay harness connector terminals F3 (Brown wire) and A4 (White wire). Connect test light between ground and
    positive feed bus connector terminal "A" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not
    illuminate, go to step 8).
    6. Connect test light between positive feed bus connector terminal "A" (Black wire) and negative feed bus connector
    terminal "B" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 9).
    7. Repair open in Black wire between rear defogger and ground. Recheck system operation.
    8. Repair open in Purple wire between rear junction block and heated backlight antenna module. Recheck system
    operation.
    9. Check for proper terminal contact at rear defogger connectors. Repair as necessary. Recheck system operation.
    10. Check for proper terminal contact at BCM. If terminal contact is okay, replace BCM. Recheck system operation.
    11. Repair open in Brown wire between rear junction block and instrument panel junction block. Recheck system
    operation.
    12. Repair open in Red wire between rear junction block and underhood junction block (located in right front corner of
    engine compartment, between battery and strut tower). Recheck system operation.
    13. Connect test light between defogger relay harness connector terminals F3 (Brown wire) and A4 (White wire). If
    test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 16).
    14. Reinstall defogger relay. Disconnect BCM 32-pin Pink connector C2. BCM is located behind right side of instrument
    panel, near rear of glove box. Using DVOM, check voltage between ground and BCM harness connector C2
    terminal A3 (White wire). If any voltage is present, go to next step. If no voltage is present, go to step 17).
    15. Repair open or short to ground in White wire between rear junction block and BCM. Recheck system operation.
    16. Check for poor connection at defogger relay terminals. If connections are okay, replace defogger relay. Recheck
    system operation.
    17. Check for proper terminal contact at BCM. If terminal contact is okay, replace BCM. Recheck system operation.

    i had the same problem. After checking the window motor was not the problem i then checked the wiring harnes in the door. I beeped out all the connectors to make sure there were no broken wires and cleaned up all the contacts. The main connector looked quite corroded. I sprayed all the connectors with rust check and reassembled. The window is working fine now
