How do I get the horn to work and rear defrost? Is it a fuse related problem?


The horn and rear defrost are on two different circuits. There will be a fuse for each. Most common problem on SUV,s for the rear defrost is a broken wire on the glass grid of the rear window. As for the horn,it could be caused by a bad horn/fuse/horn relay/horn pad/broken wiring. You need to disconnect the wire to the horn and use a test light to see if there is power at the horn when the horn button is pressed. If there is power, the horn is bad. If no power, any of the afore mentioned could be the problem

I have a 2003 Alero, replaced relay switch and fuse under the bonet for the rear defrost, all wires hooked up...no lines broke.. rear defrost button lights up , but rear defrost dont work. Are there any...


There is a connector going to rear defrost on the rear window. Disconnect this and check for voltage with defrost on. If this is good, check resistance for the connection to window. This will tell you if the electrical is working or the element is bad for the window if there is a open reading on multimeter.

Rear defroster not working


There is a seperate fuse for safety on the defroster...if that is OK, inspect the base of the rear window for breaks or seperations in the defroster grid...sometimes this can be damaged when loading unloading your trunk...replacement grids are available but difficult to work with...mounting etc.

One of the defrost cables has come detached from the rear window of my 2002 Jeep Liberty. Is it necessary to replace the window or can this be repaired? If window replacement is necessary, how can this...


If you are talking about the metal lines acroos the window,they do have a type of repair which can be done.At some national auto parts stores,they sell tape which basically has a metal line also,and can make the 2 broken ends work good again.It is like splicing a wire,or using an extension cord basically.If you call a couple,I believe it is still around.I haven't seen it in awhile,but I have been in FL 10 years now.It may simple be called defroster tape,defroster repair tape,something like that.

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.
