Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
I replaced the relay but it is still not working can you tell me if there is a fuse I might need to replace?
I'm fortunate to work at an auto body shop. There is a technician here that loves these problems. We also have a wealth of source material at our disposal, which supplied no clues as to the problem. So needless to say this one stumped even him. While I was researching this rear window defroster issue on the internet I came upon a page that had the end fix for my car. Under the passenger side dash - mounted near the front passenger door jamb there is a fuse box with a wiring harness. Open the wiring harness to observe if there is a burn mark from a poorly connected wire (see pictures) if this is the case... (this repair is not recommended but it works) clip and seperate the offending wires from the harness and wire them together. then clean the wire harness from left over wires to prevent further short circuuits when the harness is reconnected. test the rear window defroster if it works you're good to go. Please consider placing in line a fuse. I don't believe you need one but the tech here put one in just in case. He used a 30 amp Sorry no photos-files are too big but trust me if there is an issue at this spot you'll know it. it is very obvious
