SOURCE: 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette - Rear Wiper not working

This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. It is a common problem that usually starts with the wipers moving slower than normal, then eventually quits all together.

SOURCE: my rear defrost and wiper

I have the solution. [will use untechnical verbage in this reply] Bad ground is the culprit. Both devices (defrost and wiper motor) appear to share a common ground which has become disfunctional. So, I took a piece of vinyl covered wire stripped each end and secured one end under the hex head screw (like a bolt) that secures the wiper motor to the metal bracket it is attached to. Then sucured the other end under the hex head screw that holds the door window latch mechanism to the liftgate. The wire is about 6 inches long. Bingo! Both work and have been working and tested every day for 6 days.

The smashed wire idea is along these lines. But realize in the troubleshooting of this - these devices have two different switches so power unlikely the problem because two circuits failing together is unlikely. So what can fail at same time? - the ground side of the circuit. Often time devices share a common ground bus or grounding circuit.

Anyway. This fixed it! Thanks to those who read my questioned and took the time to read it. I may add a picture of the wire solution this weekend.

The rear wiper on my 2004 GMC Yukon quit working and about two weeks later the rear defrost quit working too. I have checked the fuses and they are ok. Any suggestions?


Same as with all vehicle issues

Check the fuses

Then get out the Wiring Diagrams & get familiar with the
system & pick a test point, or start taking things apart, to get
to the motor or your test points,the most logical part to
have possibly failed

No one can do that for you or tell you what the problems are

Always need a vehicle to test

window defrost check list fuse relays also check along the matrix of the window this is the liney bits that go from one end to the other for breakes in it check to make sure that the wires and connectors are still atached and still solderd to window this is a common place for them to fail hope this helps ivan

I have a 2003 dodge neon..and the rear defroster doesn't work..it has a button for it..and it just shuts off and back windshield doesn't clear at all...even if I keep turning it back on it...


Yeah, I'd think it would have lines, too, unless some new way of doing it that I'm not aware of. Maybe the rear window was replaced with a window without the defrost option. There should be a small two wire connector coming out of the back shelf near lower driver's side of rear window. That would be the defrost connector to the window lines (that aren't there,lol).
Well, good luck with that! I think there are aftermarket kits for rear window defrost, though.

Which fuse is for the rear window wiper and rear window defogger on 2003 Toyota 4Runner (V6)?


You Have one fuse for the wipers in the car. Left side of steering wheel and the back cover should list the fuses and location. The other box is located in the engine compartment above the battery. They should list the fuse locations under the compartment covering the fuses. Hope that helps

2004 4Runner Rear Wiper and Defroster won't work


I just had the same problem. I have an '04 4Runner and my rear wiper, fluid wash, and defrost stopped working after it was recently serviced. If you had the battery cables disconnected recently here is the solution...Start the engine and lower the rear tailgate window all the way... close the rear window and then turn the engine off. Restart the engine and the wiper,wash, and defrost. should work again. It has something to do with the computer which needs to be rebooted. Good luck.
