The Fix List - 2001 Suburban

We had a few things fail on the Suburban recently. The big one was that the heat in the rear didn't work well and the back hatch stopped opening. In the cold, snowy weather in Steamboat Springs, that wasn't good.
I sat down recently and made a list of the problems. It was quite a list, and I decided to work through things. We'll add a new vehicle soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to get the Suburban in better shape. Likely Delaney will be driving it by himself in 2015 sometime.
  • Horn
  • Rear door actuator - not needed, see the latch below.
  • Rear door latch
  • Service engine light
  • Sticky rear windows
  • Windshield
  • Rear wiper
  • Rear defroster
  • Rear heat
  • Iffy idle
  • Passenger mirror
Some of these I can do, some I can't, but it's time to work on fixing things where I can.
