First: Check Wiring, specially the terminals near the winshield (rear) located at both sides
Second: Check switch in dashboard (Continuity, electrical feed, Etc)
Third: Check for scratches into the windshield that interrupt the current flow.
Good Luck

2004. Why doesn't rear defroster work?


The rear defroster fuse may have opened but failure of the switch, the connection to the rear defroster grid, or the grid itself could be the cause.

Rear window defroster not working


Check obvious things first, fuses. Pull out your manual and look for locations. Second, there should be 2 wires going to the grid on the rear window defroster. Make certain they are still plugged in and the tabs have not been broken off, frequently happens at car washes when washing rear window. Third, take a close look at the grid of wire on the glass, looking for scratches. If scratched, you may be able to repair with a rear window defogger kit from your local auto store

Rear defroster lights up, but does not defrost, also very weak car radio reception.


Between the rear passenger window and the back window is a junction where rear defrost wiring and radio antenna connect. Rear defrost wiring becomes loose and burns this unit out. when looking for replacement at salvage yard everyone of them I found had burned up. Lots of La Sabres w/o working rear defrost. I made solid connections for defroster, and added an antennae, not much point in repeating a system that will fail again.

I have a 2003 Alero, replaced relay switch and fuse under the bonet for the rear defrost, all wires hooked up...no lines broke.. rear defrost button lights up , but rear defrost dont work. Are there any...


There is a connector going to rear defrost on the rear window. Disconnect this and check for voltage with defrost on. If this is good, check resistance for the connection to window. This will tell you if the electrical is working or the element is bad for the window if there is a open reading on multimeter.

2004 4Runner Rear Wiper and Defroster won't work


I just had the same problem. I have an '04 4Runner and my rear wiper, fluid wash, and defrost stopped working after it was recently serviced. If you had the battery cables disconnected recently here is the solution...Start the engine and lower the rear tailgate window all the way... close the rear window and then turn the engine off. Restart the engine and the wiper,wash, and defrost. should work again. It has something to do with the computer which needs to be rebooted. Good luck.
