The rear speakers in my 1998 chevy cavalier are not working. they arent blown, they just stopped working. this happened before and they started to work, but now they remain silent. i am unsure on where to start my search for a broken wire. is there a seperate leg off of the stereo for rear and door speakers?

Good chance that the radio power supply to those speakers have gone bad. There common for the GM Delco head unit, when the head unit get's hot. The solder get's weak and then you have what they call a cold solder, causing a bad current flow to the power supply to the rear speaker wire harness.
If you like to keep the stock head unit, you can remove it and have a electronic shop repair the head unit. Or you can go to the salvage yard and see if you can locate an other head unit for around $50.00, you should be fine with the year of your Cavalier, the 2001 and newer head unit was mated with the car's Vin number through the ECM to have it function.
Thank you for using fixy and good luck.

1998 Chevy Cavalier Z24 left rear brake/turn lamps will not work


Sometimes even a new bulb will not work. If you have a Digital Multi Meter you can check that you have power going to the rear. I know that sometimes when a vehicle loses a bulb in one end that it can make the other end stop working. With that said, I suggest that you double check to see that the front works. I used to own a 98 Cavalier RS with the 2.2 liter motor and I know that there are fuses under the hood and behind a little door on the drivers side in the car. Might check fuses under the hood also.

Can't find the fuse for the horn


There is no accessory fuse in the engine compartment, although the fuse that opperates the horn is also attached to the cigarette lighter and that is located just inside the drivers door on the side of the dash.
