You need to make sure the wires are on the glass on each side and there is no broken wires in the glass there is a repair kit at a auto store to fix if you have a volt meter test it and that way you can find the problem look for breaks in the wire in the glass and do not for get the wires on each side of the glass.

    check the rear window defroster switch also check the wire coming into the switch as well as the ones coming out of the switch itself and hopefully it is the switch itself

    go to a salvage yard and replace the whole part and see if this will solve the problem

My 2006 stratus sedan rear defrost dont work and will not light up


if you push on the rear defrost switch and it doesn`t light up then check the fuses with a test light. if the fuse is good then the defrost switch is likely bad.

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.

I have a 1990 Ford Taurus and my blinkers don't


blinkers sounds like the flasher unit is not working. It's located under dash. Also check for burnt out bulbs.
Rear defrost, or rear defogger?: Your defogger for the rear window would run off a relay, probably located in the fuse panel of your car. Often, the connections at the rear window get broke or disconnected.
Front defrost: does your heater blower work?
