Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
Check basic fuses first.
If the button that works the defogger lights up continue reading.
Many Impalas and Malibus have wiring that corrodes by the passenger side kick panel along the lower side A pillar. There is a connector with many pins that gets ruined. I dunno if malibus have a fuse box here as well like the impalas, but check there. might have to sneak a peek under the carpet. but it takes like 15 minute to check.
very common for defoggers that dont work when the fuses are good and the button lights up.

check the wires where they connect and plug in on both corners of rear window...sometimes they break off and lose contact ....they can be reglued on using a special glue that will conduct electrical current through it...can be found at most auto parts srores...good luck....Lee
