Hi,
The rear defroster is controlled by a separate switch either on the dash or center console. The fuse may be blown or the rear wires that run across the window are damaged.

Use a multi-meter to test each wire to ensure continuity exists.

I have a 2001 Alero, rear defrost isn't working at all, frost inside my car, won't defrost and heat isn't working! :( HELP any idea's... I thought it was the heater core but there isn't any leakage un


You definatly have water inside the car. Pull the carpet back in the front and rear checking for water leaks. The only way frost can develope inside a vehicle is the presents of moisture.
The other possibility is your HVAC drain is plugged and water has built up inside the heater motor area. Have the drain checked and cleaned.

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?

2005 grand caravan front heater and defrorst not working ,rear heater is working . i also hear a hissing noice on the passenger side


Just a suspicion: hissing noise comes from failed/jammed/malfunctioning motor to move the door
in the ducting to route heated air to the hoses/ports for "heater" and "defrost."
Problem: failure of motor/linkage to heater/defrost selector door under the dash on the passenger side.
Also sounds like you have not blown fuse to this selector door.
Also - hissing noise could be air being forced against the closed door (which should be open) - in this
case, you'd want to check the fuse to the heater/defroster actuator door.
The rear heater works since its function is not related to the operation of the front heater/defroster.

1991 ford escort hatchback no heat , rear defroster has never worked could be a thermostat problem ?


could be a thermostat problem if it is stuck open or none in engine. also check your water valve to see if it is working properly. Might need a system flush as sometimes the heater core will clog over time. as for the rear defroster, 3 things to check. first turn on rear defroster and check for voltage to window. if no voltage check fuse and switch.

95 jeep Cherokee heater wont work but rear window defrost still works need help please


Check the blower motor fro good connection, power and ground. Hot wire it to the battery and see if it runs. Check the blower fuse, relay, switch and resistor pack.
blower and rear defrost circuits are totally unrelated.
