Sounds like the dealer may be correct to me, but make them guarantee the job.

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.

Rear defroster lights up, but does not defrost, also very weak car radio reception.


Between the rear passenger window and the back window is a junction where rear defrost wiring and radio antenna connect. Rear defrost wiring becomes loose and burns this unit out. when looking for replacement at salvage yard everyone of them I found had burned up. Lots of La Sabres w/o working rear defrost. I made solid connections for defroster, and added an antennae, not much point in repeating a system that will fail again.

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

Back defrost don't work on 97 buick park avenue


Regarding the repair of the rear window defroster. There is a "electric ACD module" on the inside rear driver side roof sail that connects to the rear defroster and antenna. I had the same problem and found the connector for the defroster had overheated and melted resulting in a failed connection. The NAPA part numbers for the module and replacement connector are 25623688 and 15305949.

Need wiring diagram for rear defroster.


The common problem with the rear defrost not working on a park ave is the antenna integration modules on the rear c-pillars. This is the way they make the rear defrost and antenna part of the same grid on the rear window. If your external mirrors are heating up, the rear window is getting juice too. They are fed from the same circuit. And yes, the relay does go in a particular way. Compare it to the position of the others nearby and insert with the same orientation.

Rear window defroster not working Questions about the rear window defroster. I have about 4 lines, a gap and then the rest of the defroster. Top part does not work. I was told that this was an antenna....


The top part is the antenna. If the whole thing doesn't work ck this out.

My defroster quit too. I found a wire burned in the connector that is found under the fuse box that is located inside the car on the passenger side kick panel.
You have to remove the entire kick panel to access the large white connector not just the fuse door. The panel just unsnaps as you lift up and out. Start from the panel seam beside the passenger seat and lift up and back. You'll also have to unsnap the carpet there too.
You'll see the white connector that has a lot of wires on it. If you'll unsnap the connector you'll see the burned wire. It will be thicker than the others and purple. Just cut the purple wire on both sides of the connector and splice them together with a piece of wire the same gauge and it will work fine.

Passenger side rear compartment window - antenna in glass?


Depends, could be defroster could be antenna for radio, could be both. IF you don't see an antenna on your hood on passenger side then its most likely the antenna.
