Question about 1999 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

Rear window defrost 1999 Plymouth Neon - where is it?

Went to Auto Zone to buy a fuse for my rear window defroster and when I look at the fuse diagram, I can't figure out which fuse to replace. Dude inside Auto Zone says 'your car might have multiple fuse boxes'. I say, "how do I know where it is?" He's like "sorry, I can't help with that". Can someone PLEASE give me an idea? Ideally, I need to know "#7" or "#10". Thx in advance.

    I should have been more specific. I looked at the one inside the driver side door with the plastic cover. Heck, I even took the plastic cover into Auto Zone to show the worker the different names of the fuses. None of them looks like it would be a rear window defroster. Ideally, I would LOVE someone to tell me "Put at 10A mini fuse in slot 9" (if that's really where it goes, not just tell me that, you know? lol)

    thanks for trying.

Well it's like this... i've never owned a neon but the two places for fuse panels are under the dash and in the engine compartment near the battery. the one in the engine compartment will have a plastic cover over it. admittedly there are other places auto makers "hide" them.... in the glove box.... behind a plastic sheild on the sloping panel beside the steering column.... and inside the foot panels on the drivers side or passenger side... just have to look around. i have a friend that has a neon.... i'll try to run into them if you cannot find it.

    it's never that easy ... if you know which fuse number it is ... count fuses starting from the left going to the right at the top of the fuse box..... check that fuse... or if you have the label tell me which fuse you think it might be

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the rear window defroster will not defrost the button lights up but nothing ever happens.

check the heating element (the metal traces on the window) for breaks. a break will cause the circuit to not be complete and power will not flow. if you find a break, there is repair kits for it at auto parts stores. also check fuses. just because the indicator lamp is illuminating does not mean that power is making it to the back of your vehicle.

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.

Rear window defrost not working

If you have a good fuse, you hear the defrost relay clicking then I would say ....

If you can use a multimeter you can look for power at the back window.

If you have power but arent getting any heat you can then use the multimeter on continuity check to track down the break in the rear window heating grid. *(some cars put the grid between two pieces of glass or use coatings on the exterior...if yours is one of these the test I described will not work).

You put the tester on continuity and touch the leads together and see if you hear a beep sound. That's good continuity. Now turn off the defroster at the switch. Putting one lead on one of the window power contacts you can then use the other lead to see how far the grid has continuity. When you find no continuity, you have located the break!
Be patient, there could be more than one break.

There are places to shop online where you can buy the conductive paint to patch the break in your window grid.

Good luck and be careful.
