I have a 2002 chevy venture mini van. the rear defrost and rear windshield wiper doesnt work. possible reasons?


rear defrost will not work with the following reasons one the fuse could be burnt, 2 the wire going to the rear defrost could be broken, 3 there is a break in one of the lines on the rear window, 4 where the connector is to the rear defrost it could have either broke at the window or the solder let go

One of the defrost cables has come detached from the rear window of my 2002 Jeep Liberty. Is it necessary to replace the window or can this be repaired? If window replacement is necessary, how can this...


If you are talking about the metal lines acroos the window,they do have a type of repair which can be done.At some national auto parts stores,they sell tape which basically has a metal line also,and can make the 2 broken ends work good again.It is like splicing a wire,or using an extension cord basically.If you call a couple,I believe it is still around.I haven't seen it in awhile,but I have been in FL 10 years now.It may simple be called defroster tape,defroster repair tape,something like that.

The defroster only works occasionally, and only for a minute before stopping. It appears there is a short somewhere. My mechanic can not make heads or tails of the sea of wires beneath the dashboard. what...


During the restoration of our '92 Lesabre, we had an auto glass guy come out to remove & hopefully replace the same glass in the rear window section(the window trim had disintegrated and we bought new stuff to replace it with, but it wouldn't fit unless the window was removed).
What was discovered when the window was removed... was that the defroster interface on the sides of the glass was basically disconnected from the glass: the solder contact patch where the power & ground wires interfaced with the defrosting wires was corroded. It fell off once it was pulled on. In our case we had the whole rear window replaced.

What may be possible for you to do is pull back/off the rear pillar trim that covers the defrost wire & connectors and re-melt the solder with a 80-150 watt soldering iron(assuming that is where the problem is). I suppose, before buying and/or firing up the soldering iron, get the rear trim that covers the left & right edges of the rear-glass removed to find out IF the connectors & the long vertical strip they attach to are indeed attached to or detached from the glass. Oh duh, the vertical strip that the power wires connect to on either side run from top to bottom of the defroster array and are the portions that solder to the glass.

If it results in soldering, I'd suggest you use either a resin/flux core electrical solder or use a flux paste brushed over the solder contact areas & use solid electrical solder.

If I wasn't so busy with other parts of the car I would have gone after the soldering myself... but being as pre-occupied as I was that's why we opted to have the whole window(which includes the defrosting array & connectors) replaced.
I hope things work out for you regarding this... shoot me back if you need any other info/follow-up.

You have to solder it on with a soldering iron and silver solder, if you can't do it any local shop should be able to for a minimal fee.
