ON THE REAR WINDOW YOU HAVE STRIPS OF RED WIRES BUILT INTO THE REAR WINDOW FOR THE OPERATION OF YOUR REAR DEFROSTS SOUNDS LIKE THERES A BREAK IN THE CIRCUIT YOU CAN BUY A REPAIR KIT FOR IT AT AN AUTOMOTIVE STORE YOU MIGHT BE JUST AS QUICK TO REPLACE THE REAR WINDOW WITH ONE FROM A WRECKING YARD

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.

The rear window will not defrost. Also the defroster and heat are not working properly. It may start blowing warm air and then get cold. Once the heater stays on and Im driving for a distance it will...


i had a 2001 cirrus that did that i found that it was a vacum line for the defrost as for the rear window if the light is on in the buttonon the dash then you might want to see if the wire that goes to the defroster on the window are both hooked up

There's a yellow light on the dashboard (square with 3 arrows)


It's the International symbol for either the Rear Defroster...the electric grid lines going through your back glass, in which you can find the rear defroster button and push it off. Most only stay on for 20 minutes when driving since it pulls a lot of amperage, so look at your owners manual for any type of defroster switches you may have,. Without a picture, it's difficult to ascertain as to where this light is on your Instrument Cluster.

I hope this helps a little,

Rear defrost switch stays on


the relay is sticking on... look for it either under the dash in the fuse panel... or the fuse panel located in the engine compartment located near the battery.

Only btm 1/2 of rear defrost works on 98 Aurora


hopefully this will help, there is a fuse box under the back seat the one closest to the battery, there you will find that there are 2 fuses for the rear defrost try checking those out

Rear Automatic Window


Same problem, there is a small metal stopper that disables the window movement and depending upon the position of the window, will also disable the defroster and wiper. There is a service bulliten that describes a complete replacement of the window control (back door power window inoperable, toyota technical service bulletin EL 007-06). You only need to remove the stopper. follow the sections for that stopper removal. Took about half an hour. The new replacement motor and controller do not use the stopper.
