12 volts is supplied to the grid across the glass.Turn rear defrost on and check for voltage and continuity across the grid...any broken spot in the grid will cause an open circuit and inoperative heater.

2004. Why doesn't rear defroster work?


The rear defroster fuse may have opened but failure of the switch, the connection to the rear defroster grid, or the grid itself could be the cause.

The rear defroster is not working


check for current at the back electrodes that connect to the heating element for rear defroster.
check that the light goes on the button area for it to verify if any power is going to the circuit.
check for a fuse that powers the rear defroster.
Also, check that the relay for it is clicking or provides power to the rear defoster.

Good luck for this repair.

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.

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..
