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

The horn doesn't work. where is it located?

The horn is located at the front of the vehicle near the radiator. Before you even look at the horn, check the fuse - the horn has its own fuse. Then check the horn relay and then the horn. Lastly, if the horn still does not work check the horn switch/button

The rear defrost in my 2001 chevy defrost does not work,what should i try?

If it has ALWAYS worked before until just recently, I recommend checking the fuses, and wire connections coming from the rear glass. Closely inspect your beams as well,..especially if your window is tinted. If you just got the vehicle, and it doesn't work, look for exposed metal on the fine beams that go across or down the glass. If the film coating the beams has been scratched off due to tape from a temp tag, you may need to see an auto glass repair shop, or worst case..the dealership, for repairs.

2004 4Runner Rear Wiper and Defroster won't work

I just had the same problem. I have an '04 4Runner and my rear wiper, fluid wash, and defrost stopped working after it was recently serviced. If you had the battery cables disconnected recently here is the solution...Start the engine and lower the rear tailgate window all the way... close the rear window and then turn the engine off. Restart the engine and the wiper,wash, and defrost. should work again. It has something to do with the computer which needs to be rebooted. Good luck.

Yes your horn/dome lights use the same fuse as well as there is numerous other circuits that feed off this fuse like radio illumination.If you unplug the new radio does the problem go away? Could be a short in radio which I have seen or maybe pinched a wire when installing radio
