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.

Front window defroster note working


Was there a smell along with it fogging up the window like antifreeze? If it did the heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced. It will be kind of a sweet smell.

Heater Fan Quit working without warning no smoke no blown fuse.


Oh no, say it isn't so. I'm in the middle of the same task on my 85 model. I just got my parts from IPD, which I hope is not the source of your parts. I would start with the fuses and check for a blown one. Make sure you check closely as they can have fine cracks that can get missed.

Any chance you have a loose wire? - with all that have to come out for the repair it's possible you lost a groundwire connection.

Write back as I will have questions of my own on how you got yours put back together.
