    the relay clicks on when I switch the rear defroster on but no defrosting. The fuse is fine. I may need the electrical diagram and the location of the components and wires to troubleshoot.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: rear defrost quit

u will need to test the grid for continuity, using a volt meter make sure you have power to the grid at the connectors, if u do move on to testing the grid bars, each one should have power from side to side, the voltage will drop or increase as u move across the grid from the load of the heater bars.

Rear defroster lights up, but does not defrost, also very weak car radio reception.


Between the rear passenger window and the back window is a junction where rear defrost wiring and radio antenna connect. Rear defrost wiring becomes loose and burns this unit out. when looking for replacement at salvage yard everyone of them I found had burned up. Lots of La Sabres w/o working rear defrost. I made solid connections for defroster, and added an antennae, not much point in repeating a system that will fail again.

I HAVE A 2001 DODGE DURRANGO THE DEFROSTER IS NOT BLOWING ANY AIR OUT OF TOP OF DASH BUT SEEMS TO BLOW OUT OK ON ALL VENTS AND FLOOR


it sounds like the switch lever for the vents, floor and defrost is not switching the vent door that goes to the defroster hose. You need to pull the switch consol out loose from the dash and follow the cable for the defrost that goes to the hose for the defrost. You might also have a broke switch that won't pull the cable enough to open the air for the defrost hose.

A\c compressor , defrost


That is actually the design of Honda defrosters. The air conditioning system by design dries out the air in the car. To increase the efficiency of the defroster Hondas automatically turn on the air conditioning. This dries out the air and de-fogs the windows.
