The fuse box is located on the end of the drivers side dash, visible with the driver's door open.
The power distribution box is in the engine compartment on the driver's side. Lok for any burnt fuses. specially #6.The rear defrost fuse is probably the same as the heater fuse.

Which fuse box on the 2011 Chevy Malibu is the fuse for the rear defrost


Fuse box rear , fuse #23 30 amp ! Do you know where this is located ? There is also a relay for the Rear window defogger , located in the same rear fuse box .
Fuse Block - Rear
Left side of the luggage compartment, behind the left rear wheel well . But you really need to know how it works , you can check fuse an relay .
Rear Window Defogger Operation
Battery positive voltage is supplied through the BATT 1 fuse in the underhood fuse block to the rear defog relay switched input. When the rear defog switch button is pressed, the body control module (BCM) energizes the rear defog relay by providing a B+ to the control circuit of the rear defog 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 grid. The HVAC control module houses the rear defog switch and also illuminates the rear defog indicator on the switch button, upon this request. Ground for the rear window defogger grid is provided by G301 for the Sedan or G302 For the Extended Sedan.

My rear defroster won't work I have a 2000 Buick Park Avenue


Could be a bad relay !
The rear defogger circuit is protected by a 40A fuse. Voltage is supplied through the fuse to the rear defogger relay. When you press the rear defogger switch, the heater and A/C programmer sends a class 2 message to the body control module (BCM), to ground the rear defogger relay coil output circuit. This in turn closes the relay contacts allowing current to the rear window grid.
Do you know what a class 2 message is ? What a BCM is ?

Can't find fuse for heated rear window, or relay for same. Also want to know where to find fuse for interior lights


The window defogger is often powered through a circuit breaker, which should be located at the driver's side fuse panel. If you have power at the window connector, likely the window grid may need repair. Toyotas have relays everywhere, but fuses are usually only under the hood in the Power Distribution Box, and at the driver's side fuse panel.

I have a 1990 Ford Taurus and my blinkers don't


blinkers sounds like the flasher unit is not working. It's located under dash. Also check for burnt out bulbs.
Rear defrost, or rear defogger?: Your defogger for the rear window would run off a relay, probably located in the fuse panel of your car. Often, the connections at the rear window get broke or disconnected.
Front defrost: does your heater blower work?

Are the 2 connectors (male) fitted tightly on the rear window? Sometimes you have to have them resoldered. I used special electric glue. Canadian Titr. You can also use alum. duct tape. Good luck.

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.
