2005 nissian altima 2.5s rear defroster isnt working


The most common cause of this is that the grid is damaged. Check the grid for continuity across the grid pattern

Rear desfrog no work


as always, check fuses first.....
see FSM
it shows, checking 12v at rear grid. (across the 2 terminals at grid)
if 12v is there , the grid is bad, if no 12v then
a: bad fuse.
b: bad relay or switch.
if 12v is there, we then check the grid ohms.
with a DMM set to ohms low. must read very low, below 10 ohms
of infinity the grid is damaged.

easy huh? 12v at grid, if yes, check grid for ohms.
2 simple tests.

My rear defrost will not work but the light works, whats the problem


Visually inspect the heating grid attached to the inside of the rear window for breaks in the horizontal lines. Any break in the filaments in the grid will cause a partial failure of the defroster, leaving a portion of the window fogged or obscured.

  • 2 Use a test light or voltmeter to detect breaks in the filaments that aren't visible to the ***** eye. Touch one lead of the light or voltmeter to a grounded metal part of the car and the other lead to a spot on the heating grid. If the light doesn't light or the voltmeter doesn't register a reading, that indicates a break in the filament.
  • 3 Place a piece of tape on each side of the break. Align one piece just above the filament, the other piece just below it, leaving a thin space through which the filament passes.
  • 4 Apply the filament repair liquid with its applicator onto each break you've identified. Be sure to thoroughly cover the broken spot. Allow the repair to fully cure per the instructions on the bottle, then carefully remove the pieces of tape so they don't rip the filament repair.
  • 5 Inspect the the vertical lines on the heating grid if you've discovered that the entire heating grid fails to work. Any break in the vertical lines will cause complete grid failure. These can be can be repaired in the same way as the horizontal lines. Check to ensure that the metal power tabs on each side of the grid are securely fastened to the vertical lines, as a break here will also prevent the entire grid from heating.
  • 6 Reattach the metal power tabs to the heating grid as needed by removing the tab from its connector and repairing it using the epoxy found in the heating tab repair kit. Be sure to allow the full curing time indicated on the kit before reinserting the tab into the connector to ensure that the circuit isn't broken.
  • 7 Check the power switch and wiring to the rear window defogger if there are no breaks in the heating grid and both of the metal power tabs are securely connected to the grid. Replace the switch and/or wiring as necessary.

    Rear defogger doesn't work even though dash lite works


    Couple of things to check - first look for any scratches through lines, a couple of scratches will not let power run from side to side. The other is -> with a test light or voltage meter -> put (+)cable of meter/light to small electrical connector that attached to your window and (-) cable to a good ground (metal) light will come on/meter should read voltage there.

    Hello 2006 Kia Rear defroster does ot work. I checked and changed the fuse but the fuse looked ok. Any help as to where to look for the problem would be appreciated. Thankyou, larry


    It could be a bad rear defroster control switch or relay, it could be a loose or damaged connector somewhere in the defroster circuit, or it could be a damaged or defective defroster grid on your rear window. The easiest way to check to see if you have a circuit problem or a grid problem is to check for voltage at the connectors to the defroster grid at the rear window area. These connectors may even be located inside the trunk just below the rear window. If there is power there, then the circuits are OK and the rear window will most likely have to be replaced to fix it. If there is no power there, then the circuits must be traced to locate the cause of the failure...Most likely a burned-up switch and/or connector.

    Hyundai XG350 rear defogger doesn't work. I have changed the relays, checked all the fuses all good, dash switch works because I changed that too. checked the wire to the grid thats' ok too. now what?


    The rear defogger is controlled by the Electronic Time and Alarm Control Module (ETACM). It receives a signal from the switch, and if the car is running, turns on the rear window defogger. Most frequently the problem is a blown 30A defogger fuse. Other common problems are the defogger switch itself or the switch not being plugged in properly, but there can also be a bad defogger relay, defective ETACM, or wiring issue. If you're capable of doing some electrical diagnosis, I'd encourage you to register for a free account at www.hmaservice.com (requires Internet Explorer and Adobe SVG Viewer) and print the schematic from the site. Also, does the indicator lamp come on when you depress the defogger button,I hope this help you in the right direction now you know how it works

    I have a 2002 Corolla GS. Rear window defroster not working


    The main cause for the rear window not working is a disconnected wire at either side of the defroster grid. You can see where the body harness connects to the rear glass.

    The second most liekly cause are broken defroster grid wires.

    I would suggest to you to obtain a 12 volt DC testlamp, and check for voltage as follows, at the rear defroster.

    Hook the clamp of the testlamp up to a known good ground. The back door latch 'hoop' is great. Next, turn on the rear defroster, and place the point of the tip on the extreme side of the back window, on the grid. Does it the tester light up bright? If not, try the other side.

    The light, moving across the grid, should get noticeably dimmer, if the grid is functioning properly. The light will go out when you encounter a broken grid wire..

    I scraped off the tint and the grids on the rear window ,there is any way I can fix it without getting a new window?


    u can't reinstall the grids, there are kits to repair small breaks or damage but not the whole grid or large portions of it, u will need a new/used window, do a salvage yard search for a used on.
