Hello, new to the forum and hoping you all might be able to steer me into the right direction. Having some weird electrical issues on my wife's 04 aveo5. Base model with 80k miles. Intermittently while driving the headlights, blower motor, and wipers will all stop working. Keep driving a little ways, and they will all start working again. When the headlights go off, the DRL's continue to work. Dash lights, taillights and parking lights keep working as well. At first we just thought it was the headlights, till it was cool out and raining one night. Then noticed the blower motor and wipers stop working too.
From researching I see the "splicer" in the under hood fuse box is notorious for burning out and causing lighting issues. I've checked and the splicer looks perfect from what I can tell without taking the fuse box apart. There are no burnt spots visible from above. Also, I think if it was issue with the splicer, the lights would not work at all, not be intermittent like they are. Right? Anyone know if there is a common ground for the headlights, hvac, and wipers?
