Hi Rae, the cable which connects the rear defrost is very fragile. I don't know where you are in the world but I am sure that in some places there is a resin which can be used to make such repairs. Where I am it is not available, but if you go onto the net and Google "Repair wiring for rear window defog" you may come up with an answer. sorry I'm not of more help. Regards John

How do I get the horn to work and rear defrost? Is it a fuse related problem?


The horn and rear defrost are on two different circuits. There will be a fuse for each. Most common problem on SUV,s for the rear defrost is a broken wire on the glass grid of the rear window. As for the horn,it could be caused by a bad horn/fuse/horn relay/horn pad/broken wiring. You need to disconnect the wire to the horn and use a test light to see if there is power at the horn when the horn button is pressed. If there is power, the horn is bad. If no power, any of the afore mentioned could be the problem

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

Elantra rear window defroster


check your fuses and check to see if any of the little metal wires going across your rear glass are broken. They make stuff that comes in what looks like a fingernail polish bottle at the local autoparts store to repair these small broken wires if you find any.

My rear defroster stopped working. I press the rear defroster and i hear a click coming from the fuse area but the light does not turn on nor does the rear defroster work. Checked the fuse but the fuse...


Check to see that the wires that connect to the rear window are indeed intact...then you will need to look at the lines in the window to be sure none of then are broken...to go further, you will need a voltmeter...hook up the voltmeter across the two leads that connect to the window and turn on the system to see if it delivers 12 volts to the window...if so then the connections are either bad or the wires inside the glass are open

I have a 2002 Corolla GS. Rear window defroster not working


The main cause for the rear window not working is a disconnected wire at either side of the defroster grid. You can see where the body harness connects to the rear glass.

The second most liekly cause are broken defroster grid wires.

I would suggest to you to obtain a 12 volt DC testlamp, and check for voltage as follows, at the rear defroster.

Hook the clamp of the testlamp up to a known good ground. The back door latch 'hoop' is great. Next, turn on the rear defroster, and place the point of the tip on the extreme side of the back window, on the grid. Does it the tester light up bright? If not, try the other side.

The light, moving across the grid, should get noticeably dimmer, if the grid is functioning properly. The light will go out when you encounter a broken grid wire..

2005 pontiac sunfire rear defrost doesn't work


sounds like a broken grid(the lines across the rear window) or thepower wire has broke off the window
to check this you need some FINE STEEL WOOL
turn the rear defrost on and move the steel wool across the grid not up and down slowly and litely if there is a break in the grid the steel wool will SPARK then mark it keep checking there could be more then one break
then you will need a repair kit
hope this helps

Rear window defroster


you need to make sure the wires are on the glass on each side and there is no broken wires in the glass there is a repair kit at a auto store to fix if you have a volt meter test it and that way you can find the problem look for breaks in the wire in the glass and do not for get the wires on each side of the glass.

Rear Window, Rear Defrost stopped working


I suspect that the back door ECU (the relay box that you speak of) is bad.
Unfortunatly common.
Here is how you check:
With the Key On, you should have 12 VDC in the Solid YELLOW wire going into the box.
Also, You should have power in the solid BLUE wire going into the box.
Operating the switches should transmit power to the BLUE with RED trace, and the VIOLEt with WHITE tracer.
If you have the right power as described abobe, the box is indeed bad. This is a dealer item only, cannot buy one at the local parts store. Sorry. Hope this helps.
