Hey everyone,

I recently bought a 2003 ford focus wagon. I had an issue last night in that i couldn't close the sunroof. This morning I realized that the rear defroster and the rear windshield wiper were not functioning either.

Any ideas at all?

Thanks in advance

I'm no pro in this area, but my observations have shown that a single fuse can affect multiple functions. It just so happens to be the easiest thing to check too, so you might as well start there.

You can find your manual on this site:
https://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/VehicleDetails&vehicleIndex=0

Go to the left bar and click "Add a Vehicle" to find your year.

In the manual, there's a section called "Roadside Emergencies" where you'll find the fuse numbers. Check those fuses pertaining to the problem, such as rear defroster, rear wiper, sunroof, etc. There is a different fuse for each one, but one bad one could take out other features. Get a fuse puller if you don't already have one. They usually come with some extra fuses for replacement.

If that doesn't work, you'll probably need to dig into some wiring or a relay.

Edit: Actually I'll need to edit this info to suit dieselkiller. I didn't realize it's a resurrected thread.
Edit 2: Ok, it's a bit more universal now.
