For impala 2005defroster for rear window

If the rear window has a defroster grid, check for continuity on the grid, If none, the grid is broken, the auto store should have some grid repair for that. you find the broken spot in the grid and paint over it to restore continuity.

Otherwise, I'd have to check voltage and ground for the grid.

No sound and no defrost

Same exact thing happened to my rear defroster on my 06 impala.
on the passenger side by the door molding there is a harness the connection my have melted like mine. I cut the wire on both sides of the harness and soldered them and put heat heal shrink wrap to seal the wires. And it workers perfect. The button will still control the defroster just like before.

to check it take a multimeter and place it on each connection of the rear defrost to make sure you don't have a break somewhere in the defroster

2006 chevy impala rear window heater does not work

check the fuses the fuse for this can be found in your owners manual. if the fuse is good and the lite for the rear defrost lites up the rear heater strips on your rear window may be bad the only repair for that would be having the rear window replaced

Rear defrost dont work on my 2006 chevy impala. Found relay but has no fuse. all fuses under hood are good and the ones on passinger side kick panel are good. light lites up on switch but no power at rear...

it works off heater fuse and has relay which you found and is good .the problem is a breake in the heating elements in the window. they can be fixed w/out replacing window . check each element in window w/ohm meter .put aluminum foil around the pos. lead on meter to check the wire.

If there is a scratch across any of the little lines on the rear window all or part of the defroster will not work. It could also be a bad relay not allowing enough power to the rear.

I press the rear dfrost button and the light comes on but the window is not defrosting

The Impala has a bad wire connector under the passenger side kick panel. You will find a burnt spot in the connector. Cut the wire on both sides of the connectot an solder in a wire to bypass the connector. I believe the wire is purple. This will fix the rear window defroster but even after this fix you may find that the rear defroster will no longer turn off by itself.

2005 pontiac sunfire rear defrost doesn't work

sounds like a broken grid(the lines across the rear window) or thepower wire has broke off the window
to check this you need some FINE STEEL WOOL
turn the rear defrost on and move the steel wool across the grid not up and down slowly and litely if there is a break in the grid the steel wool will SPARK then mark it keep checking there could be more then one break
then you will need a repair kit
hope this helps
