End of your dash at drivers side, where you open door, pull panel & read map. Also have another power distribution box under hood if not in there.

Rear window defroster not working


Check obvious things first, fuses. Pull out your manual and look for locations. Second, there should be 2 wires going to the grid on the rear window defroster. Make certain they are still plugged in and the tabs have not been broken off, frequently happens at car washes when washing rear window. Third, take a close look at the grid of wire on the glass, looking for scratches. If scratched, you may be able to repair with a rear window defogger kit from your local auto store

97chevyastro rear window electric defrost is not working


Using a multimeter, check the two connections on the rear defroster for power. If power is present, check the thin lines which stretch from side to side on the rear screen for continuity. It is quite common for those who carry pets such as dogs in the back for the pets to scratch these elements and break them. If minor damage is present in the form of scratches, then there is special conductive paint available which can be used to fill in minor breaks.

If no power is present, then check the fuse.


If power isn't present, but the fuse is intact, then check power and operation of the switch.

Rear defoger not working


Check the fuse it should be labeled in the fuse panel as rear def. If its blown replace it and if that doesnt fix it or if the fuse blows again then u have an electrical problem and will need to have a technician look at it.

My rear defroster stopped working. I press the rear defroster and i hear a click coming from the fuse area but the light does not turn on nor does the rear defroster work. Checked the fuse but the fuse...


Check to see that the wires that connect to the rear window are indeed intact...then you will need to look at the lines in the window to be sure none of then are broken...to go further, you will need a voltmeter...hook up the voltmeter across the two leads that connect to the window and turn on the system to see if it delivers 12 volts to the window...if so then the connections are either bad or the wires inside the glass are open

The rear defrost in my 2001 chevy defrost does not work,what should i try?


If it has ALWAYS worked before until just recently, I recommend checking the fuses, and wire connections coming from the rear glass. Closely inspect your beams as well,..especially if your window is tinted. If you just got the vehicle, and it doesn't work, look for exposed metal on the fine beams that go across or down the glass. If the film coating the beams has been scratched off due to tape from a temp tag, you may need to see an auto glass repair shop, or worst case..the dealership, for repairs.

There are a couple of little things not working.The radio works but i can't tune in any channels and the rear defrost doesn't work.is it a fuse?


check that the antenna cable is still plugged into the back of the radio and plugged into the bottom of the antenna at the finder to check radio end insert 4 large paper clips into the square holes in the front corners of the stereo this disengages the lock mechanisms slide the radio out and check the connections if electrical antenna check the fuse on the back of the radio that it isn't blown if so replace. loosen the inner fender panel and see if cable still connected to antenna #2 check the fuse for the rear defroster its probably blown if so replace and check for any grounded out hot wires also check the connections at each end of the rear window sometimes they become corroded or unglued from the window, if any of the fine lines that cross the window have been scratched or removed partially this will also render the defroster inoperable

Rear Defroster Problem


1 st of all check all the fuses if all are good it may be the switch itself .......if you are referring to just the defroster ensure both connections are connected to th rear window if there are any breaks in the defroster lines as you will they sell a metal fill type repair kit not expensive and with the use of tape and this mixture you can easily repair the breaks in the defroster lines ........but first ck your fuses and connections maby determine with the use of a test light and check for power at both the switch and the rear wire connections for power to them otherwise it is most likely the switch

1995 Chevy Suburban Rear window defrost


as I remember there are wires going to each window, if just one place on the glass has been scratched through the copper lines they will not work, also there is a relay, I could not tell you the exact location, but I think if the light comes on to tell you they are working then the relay is ok, also check fuses. I have had this problem many times in the past. If the copper lines have been broken they can be fixed, also the clips that hold the wires to the defroster check them and the actual connections. I hope this helps you. God Bless and Merry Christmas!
