when you look for a fuel leak, make sure the engine is running. the fuel lines will be pressurized and you are more likely to spot the leak. if you see fuel squirting, be careful since it under a lot of pressure. it might look like a single strand of a spider web. also, you should wear eye protection since gas in the eye would be a bad thing. needless to say, don't light a match or lighter for light to find the fuel leak. since gas is explosive, you probably should take it to a shop if you can't fix it. it could be dangerous if gas drips on a hot part. fuel vapors are explosive too.

SOURCE: rear window defroster wont work.
First place to check is under the wide trim piece that runs over the back drivers side door and also runs to the back window. You can pull this away from the body. It just snaps in place and the seatbelt goes through it. Pull it down toward you and you should see a black box fastened to the side of the window pillar. It should have three wire connections. One is the radio antenna, one goes to the window and one comes from the wire harness. Check the two wire connections from the harness and to the window. See if they are loose or in my case the one from the harness was burnt and had melted the black box where the wire went in. I had to replace the the wire connector and the black box ($72.00) and replaced the connector terminals. The replacement connector is available but that little thing is pricey ($32.00). They must be proud of that thing.
Hope this helped.

Code PO442 means you have a small leak in your evap system. Codes PO452 & PO453 refer specifically to the fuel thank.
Although it will be a good idea to change your gas cap, I don't think it is where your problem is coming from.
I would check the vacumm hoses for loose fitting or small cracks.
Specially if you had your car worked on recently.

Once you have checked ALL fuses. An inspection of the wires should be done. There is a rubber boot in the drivers door jam between the drivers door and the A-piller. This is a common location for breaks in wires to occur do to frequent movement. If you don't see anything here, proceed to checking for power at the non-functional switches (window, door lock). If power is present, check for continuity through the switch. These checks can be performed with a simple test light.

The instrument panel fuse block is located to the far right side under the instrument panel. Remove the hush panel on the passenger's side to reveal the fuses. To remove the panel, do the following:
1. Remove the two 7 mm screws located along the front edge of the panel.
2. Lower the hush panel. The fuse block is a rectangular covered box located on the far right side under the instrument panel.
3. Remove the cover. Now you can see the fuses and replace them.
4. Place the wide end of the fuse puller over the plastic end of the fuse.
5. Squeeze the ends over the fuse and pull it out.
Spare fuses are located in the empty slots shown on the following chart. Check PDM position for Passenger Door Module...
Additionally, in yhe Power Distribution box (underhood) you have one MaxiFuse of 30AMP for PWR WDO (Circuit Braker). Also check DDM (Driver Door Module) and PDM (Passenger Door Module) fuses.
This diagrams could be helpfull (click image for zoom)...

It is possible that the BCM (Body Control Module) could be faulted, however I would make the other checks I suggested before drawing this conclusion.
Keep us updated.
