You can find Loctite Rear Window Defogger Tab Adhesive, at most major auto parts stores.
It's about a $10 repair kit. The instructions are in the pack.

Wiring diagram for rear window defogger 2005 silverado from dash to deffoger


Rear Window Defogger System Components
The rear window defogger system consist of the following components:
• HVAC control module
• Body control module (BCM)
• DEFOG relay
• Rear window defogger grid
Rear Window Defogger Operation
When you turn the ignition to the ON position, ignition voltage is supplied to the DEFOG relay coil. Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to the DEFOG relay switched input. When the rear window defogger switch is depressed, the HVAC control module illuminates the rear window defogger indicator and sends a class 2 message to the BCM. The BCM energizes the DEFOG relay by grounding the control circuit of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the relay switched input through the switch contacts and out the relay switched output to the rear window defogger. Ground for the rear window defogger is provided by G306 or G390 (crew cab).
When you turn ON the ignition and press the rear window defogger switch for the first time, the defogger cycle lasts 10 minutes. Further operation results in 5 minute defogger cycles.

Do you know what your messing with ? What's the problem ?

WHERE IS THE FUSE FOR REAR WINDOW DEFROSTER WHAT NUMBER FUSE IS IT IN THE 2007 ENVOY


Does the indicator light come on when you turn the defroster on? Have you checked to see where the wires come in on the rear window to see if they might have gotten disconnected. It usually happens right at the point where the wire connects to the grid.

Rear Defogger Inoperative, But Heated Mirrors Operate Correctly
1. Connect scan tool. Turn ignition switch to RUN position. Turn rear defogger on. Using scan tool, display BCM
outputs. If rear defogger is being requested on, go to next step. If rear defogger is not being requested on, go to
step 10).
2. Ensure ignition switch is in RUN position. Remove rear defogger relay from rear junction block, located on center
right rear of passenger compartment, under rear seat. Connect test light between ground and defogger relay
harness connector terminal F3 (Brown wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not
illuminate, go to step 11).
3. Connect test light between ground and defogger relay harness connector terminal A2 (Red wire). If test light
illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 12).
4. Connect test light between defogger relay harness connector terminals A2 (Red wire) and B3 (Purple wire). If test
light illuminates, go to step 13). If light does not illuminate, go to next step.
5. Disconnect rear defogger positive and negative feed bus connectors. Connect a jumper wire between defogger
relay harness connector terminals F3 (Brown wire) and A4 (White wire). Connect test light between ground and
positive feed bus connector terminal "A" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not
illuminate, go to step 8).
6. Connect test light between positive feed bus connector terminal "A" (Black wire) and negative feed bus connector
terminal "B" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 9).
7. Repair open in Black wire between rear defogger and ground. Recheck system operation.
8. Repair open in Purple wire between rear junction block and heated backlight antenna module. Recheck system
operation.
9. Check for proper terminal contact at rear defogger connectors. Repair as necessary. Recheck system operation.
10. Check for proper terminal contact at BCM. If terminal contact is okay, replace BCM. Recheck system operation.
11. Repair open in Brown wire between rear junction block and instrument panel junction block. Recheck system
operation.
12. Repair open in Red wire between rear junction block and underhood junction block (located in right front corner of
engine compartment, between battery and strut tower). Recheck system operation.
13. Connect test light between defogger relay harness connector terminals F3 (Brown wire) and A4 (White wire). If
test light illuminates, go to next step. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 16).
14. Reinstall defogger relay. Disconnect BCM 32-pin Pink connector C2. BCM is located behind right side of instrument
panel, near rear of glove box. Using DVOM, check voltage between ground and BCM harness connector C2
terminal A3 (White wire). If any voltage is present, go to next step. If no voltage is present, go to step 17).
15. Repair open or short to ground in White wire between rear junction block and BCM. Recheck system operation.
16. Check for poor connection at defogger relay terminals. If connections are okay, replace defogger relay. Recheck
system operation.
17. Check for proper terminal contact at BCM. If terminal contact is okay, replace BCM. Recheck system operation.

If you have a 12 volt test lamp, try this: Turn on the rear defroster. Attach the clamp to a good ground point; the door latch hoop is good)...Now, touch the test lamp to the extreme left and extreme right sides of the grids, on the inside of the glass. If the light does not light in either place, you probably either have a bad defroster relay, or the wires coming to the rear grids is off. Please feel free to get back to me with the results of your test.

Radio cuts out when rear window defogger is turned on(05' Altima)


I have the same problem in my 2003 Altima. I had a friend who works on cars check it out. I watched him and when he removed the panel under the steering wheel next to the driver's door you could hear a clicking noise. He said is sounds like my defogger relay/switch is bad. I located the part and it is not that expensive. I am going to purchase the part and have it put on. I will keep you posted to let you know if it solves my problem. If it does I will give you the name of the part so you can hopefully solve your issue.

2001 Sienna rear window defogger doesn't work


There are 3 fuses that control the rear defogger, and 1 relay

The fuses are: 10 amp HEATER, 10 amp MIRROR-HEATER; under the dash
The 30 amp DEF fuse is in the fuse box under the hood
The relay is the DEFOGGER relay, which is on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash

Also, check for a loose wire on the defroster grid (on the back glass), this is the most common problem.
