Wipers,Interior Lights, Speed Gauge,Window Deforester, Door Open Alarm,Washer Pump, they all quit working at the same time. How do we fix all these? I checked all the fuses, relays, wiper motor and pump motor, all switches are ok.

    I cannot find a common circuit looking at the fuse boxes.

    Wipers and washer pump - this can be multifunction switch or steering column switch related.

    Is it the rear window defroster you are concerned about? Or is it the fronts?

    Speed gauge - is this the speedometer?

    It could be that a common ground is loose or corroded. It could also be water intrusion into a body module like the GEM module under the dash.
