Windows fog up


There is too much moisture inside the cabin. Either something is leaking water into the car, or your fresh air setting is not working on the hvac system. You can not run the system on recirculate and get rid of the moisture.

Locate the fuse box. Look for rear defrost on label on cover of fuse housing; or your owners manual for this fuse. If this does not help, and your fuses are ALL in working order, then locate the wiring for your rear defrost and follow it. There may a breaking point.

No power to rear defrost, but the windshield defrost works.


I recommend you go to an auto parts store and tell them that the fuse for the rear window defroster has blown and they will find the fuse and replace it for you.

Defrost Problems the window freezes up from the outter edges In..


The rear window defrost could be a fuse or relay, if you have the owners manual that will show you which fuse or relay it is.
Is the engine temperature getting up to normal? Where do you have the heater controls set, are you pulling fresh air in from outside, or are you recycling the air inside the car? You have to pull in outside air, or the windows will continue to fog up. That car has a "Cabin Filter" which fiters the air coming into the heater system from outside. Have you ever changed that? It's usually located under the panel by the right windshield wiper. Check the owners manual that should tell you about it. No owners manual go to? car-parts.com, That will give a list on the salvage yards in you area that have a used manual.

Rear defrost won't turn off.


Disconnect the cable that goes to the defroster at the rear windshield, this will allow you to put the fuse back for now. Check or replace the rear defroster switch. If its not the switch you have a short-circuit. You can try replacing the wires from the switch to the back windshield, you can use the same switch or an after market one will do.

Rear windshield Wiper and Rear Defroster don't work


I had the same problem. I spent a full afternoon checking fuses. My rear window was down a fraction of an inch. Put your window down and up again before spending any money.

BATTERY WENT DEAD, CLICKING WHEN TRIED TO START IT. PUT NEW BATTERY IN NOW R WINDSHIELD WIPER WONT GO OFF AND AC WONT WORK


battery went dead because the rear windshield wiper didn't go off during the night, as soon as you put a new battery, the wiper start to working and won't stop. probably the switch out of order, A/C doesn't work, check the fuse.
