Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
Blazer known for wiring in rear gate going bad, bare and shorts out.
1. check all fuses (all of them) to be good.
2. replace any that are not.
3. check owners manual to see if the items no working are sharing the same fuse.
4. pull the fuse out for the tailgate
5. and test each item again.
if problem persists, you have a wiring problem. You will have to check each wire from the fuse box back to each element (washer, horn, lock.. Test for continuity (breaks along wire, tight connections at each end). repair any you find bare or broke or loose.
Repeat until all wires are checked. You can use wiring tester with a sharp probe and built in light with wire and clip on other end, you do not need ohm meter.
