SOURCE: rear defroster on 2002 alero does not work

I found this on another site... it seems like a credible post so I thought I'd share... I'm going to check it out next weekend.

"Just an FYI. The rear defroster issue is due to a bad Antenna Buffer Module / Antenna Module. The power to the rear defogger goes through a module that separates the antenna amplifier signal from the 12 volt power to the defogger. The defogger elements also act as the antenna. The module is behind the rear pillar right behind the rear passenger door. The inside plastic has to be gently pulled off, the seat needs to be folded down to get the lower part of the trim off. One screw at the bottom, unplug the wires... (two connect to the window grid, mark which one is which)... and the module is free.
The module may require re-soldering of the pins joining the main power connectors to the internal circuit board. If you feel you can do this (or have a friend do it for you), go for it... else get another module from the dealer to replace it."

This is the most credible of the several posts that I've seen talking about this module. I know its there... I saw it yesterday when I was working on the car.

SOURCE: Rear window defroster

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.

I have a 2005 nissan altima with a rear defroster problem. The power comes on, I hear the relay kick in and I see the window clearing but it won't shut off automatically unless I press the button off or...

Yes, there should be a timing mechanism that shuts the defroster off after a certain time. Are you sure you are giving it enough time? Usually about 10 or 15 minutes when most defrosters turn off automatically. Try contacting a dealer service or tech rep about the system- how long it should stay on, how to diagnose, where such parts are located, etc.

No power to rear window defroster in 2003 Ford Mustang

the switch is protected by a fuse and it activates the relay which handles the high current needed to operaate the back window. You should have a light that comes on when the switch is turned on.

it's behind dash panel, center.
