If you are referring to an "electrical wire" breaking, then the answer is, "yes", a break in the wire could account for the malfunctions you have noted. If the damage is limited to just the wiring, a certified mechanic could resolve this for you during an electrical components repair. Once the wire is repaired, which should of course be done in any event, the mechanic will confirm proper operation of all systems. If a problem still remains, the malfunction will have to be diagnosed further. Of course, get the wire repaired first inasmuch as there is no wiring on a vehicle that is optional or unnecessary.
