SOURCE: 2001 Sienna rear window defogger doesn't work

There are 3 fuses that control the rear defogger, and 1 relay

The fuses are: 10 amp HEATER, 10 amp MIRROR-HEATER; under the dash
The 30 amp DEF fuse is in the fuse box under the hood
The relay is the DEFOGGER relay, which is on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash

Also, check for a loose wire on the defroster grid (on the back glass), this is the most common problem.

SOURCE: 1998 toyota corolla dash and shifter lights out fuse and relay good

sounds like you have a bad panel dimmer control. try turning the control from bright to dim very fast a few times then slowly, do this in a dark area or at night with the headlights on, you should see a flicker of light occasionally. If you don't see any light then it could be either the headlight switch or the dimmer control, if you DO see any light, then it's your dimmer

2007 HHR rear hatch will not unlock

Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ? Viewing wiring diagrams an using a DMM - digital multi-meter . Looking at a wiring diagram I see a relay ,L/GATE RELSE relay - # 18 underhood fuse box . It's controlled by the BCM - body contol module . The liftgate release switch is a input to the BCM . Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size. Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on tailgate release . Click the search button then the first blue link.

Pressing the Liftgate Release Switch closes a contact providing a ground for the Liftgate Release Switch Signal circuit. The BCM will detect the voltage drop and command voltage to be supplied to the Liftgate Release Relay Control circuit thus energizing the LIFTGATE RELEASE Relay which provides voltage to the Release Actuator releasing the liftgate.

Do you know what a DTC - diagnostic trouble code is ?
DTC B3265 01: Hatch Release Output Circuit Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06: Hatch Release Output Circuit Short to Ground or Open

B3265 01
This DTC will set when the BCM detects a short to battery in the liftgate release relay control circuit.
B3265 06
This DTC will set when the BCM detects an open or short to ground in the liftgate release relay control circuit.

Several Electical Problems w/2004 Navigator

That auto has lots of mini computers to keep everything working. I would try a new battery after leaving the old battery disconnected for an hour. If everything works, run test light to determine if and where there is a drain on the battery.

Rear hatch wont open, with push button,or remote on my 2007 D0dge Durago

It sounds like a relay or interlock is bad. Get close to the hatch and listen for a click sound while pushing the remote button. If you don't hear anything, it will be the relay under the dash or the wire has disconnected from the interlock.

Wont keep charge

I don't know if your Jimmy uses a separate voltage regulator or if it is integrated into the alternator; if it isn't it may be faulty.
About this:
> if I put a fuse in the int lights will not shut off, so i dont use it,
Check the door switches at all doors and the hatch with the fuse installed and the lights on.One at a time, open a door, look for a button somewhere on the stationary frame, depress it and wait for the timer to shut them off each time; this may take a few minutes on each door.
These lousy switches are not very durable and the little plunger may not be pushing them in far enough to open the switch, alloowing the lights to turn off when not needed.
Our Jeep GC had this problem and I have put the small rubber bumpers used on cabinet doors on the contact point of the door to securely depress the switch buttons and the problem is now gone.

2005 gmc yukon back passenger doors will not unlock with key remote and rear hatch wont unlock or open

Either the relay for the locks is bad or the fuse. When you push the power lock on the inside if the doors do not unlock then I would check the fuses, both inside and under the hood. If they do work then the relay/s may be bad. You are pushing your key button twice correct?
