I just accessed mine. It is under the rear seat. You just lift up on the seat, and it pops right out. If you are having problems with the rear defroster, it could very likely be the control module. This is a combination module which the rear antenna, and the defroster grid plugs in to.
When mine went out I smelled a "burnt wire" smell, then it went out.
To access the module, sit in the back seat, drivers side. There is a trim panel that will be by your left ear as you are looking forward. It is the panel that flares down from the ceiling to the rear deck. Gently pull at the edge of this panel, working around the edges, and the small strip which continues over the top of the door.
The seatbelt goes through this panel, so it will be hanging from the seatbelt at this point. There is a ~3" square, black module with the defroster input and output wires, and the antenna wire plugged into it.
You just unplug the wires, pull the one mounting screw, and voila!
On mine the module was obviously melted, as was the wire going into it. I got the replacement from a salvage yard, as the new one was over $50, and the replacement wire was $18. The salvage yard was unable to look it up, so I had to go out to the yard with them and pull it myself. The final cost was $17 (they tried to charge me $40, and I told them I could get it online for that, and they dropped the price).
You can use a crimp on **** connector to put in the replacement wire, but because of the heat in that area I chose to solder the wires together.
BTW, this module fits a wide range of Buicks, and full size Olds.
Hope this helps.

No lights are most likely the dimmer switch at the light switch, Replace it. rear defrost, could be a broken wire, switch is bad, or the little stands that go across the window, one is broke. No heat, probably the vent motor on the passenger side under the dash, close to the center console.

Interior lights don't work on 1997 Buick Park Avenue


the fuse box you are looking for is under the dash on the passenger side, you will need to remove the plstic kick plate then look up and a little to the right,you might have to remove three screws located along the rear edge of the panel, when you have the cover off in the upper left hand corner of the fuse box you are looking for a fuse that is marked [ SBM ] this fuse is for you interior lights, there should be extra fuses, in the second row second from the bottom and the third row second rfom the top, you'll know their spares if they pull out really easy and have no metal connectors inside the slots you just pulled them out of.
