There are 3 fuses that control the rear defogger, and 1 relay
The fuses are: 10 amp HEATER, 10 amp MIRROR-HEATER; under the dash
The 30 amp DEF fuse is in the fuse box under the hood
The relay is the DEFOGGER relay, which is on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash
Also, check for a loose wire on the defroster grid (on the back glass), this is the most common problem.

Same problem, there is a small metal stopper that disables the window movement and depending upon the position of the window, will also disable the defroster and wiper. There is a service bulliten that describes a complete replacement of the window control (back door power window inoperable, toyota technical service bulletin EL 007-06). You only need to remove the stopper. follow the sections for that stopper removal. Took about half an hour. The new replacement motor and controller do not use the stopper.

First, make sure that you are using a seperate switch to activate the rear wiper fluid than you are for the front.
You activate the front window fluid by pulling the lever toward you, while you activate the rear window fluid by twisting the end of the lever all the way up or down as far as it will go (It will return from these positions automatically). If it still doesn't work, you should have someone stand at the back of the vehicle when you activate it to make sure they hear the sound of the washer fluid pump working (key must be in on position for this test).
If it is, check to make sure the nozzle is not clogged. Also make sure that it's not leaking out of the back door due to the hose inside the door becoming disconnected.
If it's not working, then your rear pump motor is burned out and needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps!
