Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe

2 Answers

My rear window defroster will not work. It hasn't work for about a year. I changed fuses even though the original looked good. It still will not work. What else could it be? I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier. Another issue I've had for a long time is the gear shift light will not light up. Is there a fuse for that? Where would it be?

2 places problems happen.

- at drivers side kick panel connector with purple wire coming in and black wire coming out may be burnt. These 2 wires can just be soldered together.
- connector at the back of heater control purple wire pin grip is burnt, pin grip would have to be replaced.

I have a 2003 dodge neon..and the rear defroster doesn't work..it has a button for it..and it just shuts off and back windshield doesn't clear at all...even if I keep turning it back on it...


Yeah, I'd think it would have lines, too, unless some new way of doing it that I'm not aware of. Maybe the rear window was replaced with a window without the defrost option. There should be a small two wire connector coming out of the back shelf near lower driver's side of rear window. That would be the defrost connector to the window lines (that aren't there,lol).
Well, good luck with that! I think there are aftermarket kits for rear window defrost, though.

My 1995 toyota corolla rear defroster not working, also defroster light does not come, on i checked fuse under dash is good. Any other checks i can do.Also is there a away to get electrical diagram for...


i would imagine the fuse for it would be inside the car under the dash on drivers side. but also if you look at the rear window you should see the rear defrost wires soldered to the window sometimes one will break off and it might just need to be resoldered

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.

My rear defroster stopped working. I press the rear defroster and i hear a click coming from the fuse area but the light does not turn on nor does the rear defroster work. Checked the fuse but the fuse...


Check to see that the wires that connect to the rear window are indeed intact...then you will need to look at the lines in the window to be sure none of then are broken...to go further, you will need a voltmeter...hook up the voltmeter across the two leads that connect to the window and turn on the system to see if it delivers 12 volts to the window...if so then the connections are either bad or the wires inside the glass are open

My 2004 6cfl. Trailblazer rear window defroster is not working. The wires appear to be making a good contact. The outside mirrors defrost ok using the same switch as the test window defroster. Is there...


There is a module that controls the rear window defogger grid . LGM/ EGM Liftgate or endgate module .Receive's message on class 2 serial data network from the HVAC control module to turn it on when button pressed . Fuse # 3 30 amp located in the rear fuse box . Do you know where the rear fuse box is ?
Rear Window Defogger Description and Operation
Rear Window Defogger System Components
The rear window defogger system consist of the following components:
• HVAC control module
• Liftgate module (LGM)/endgate module (EGM)
• Rear window defogger grid
Rear Window Defogger Operation (With LGM)
Battery positive voltage is supplied through the LGM 2 fuse to the LGM for the rear window defogger system. When the rear window defogger switch is depressed, the HVAC control module illuminates the rear window defogger indicator, and sends a class 2 message to the LGM to enable the rear window defogger. The LGM enables the rear window defogger by allowing battery positive voltage to the rear window defogger.
When the rear window defogger switch is pressed for the first time, the defogger cycle lasts 10 minutes. Further operation results in 10 minute defogger cycles.
Rear Window Defogger Operation (With EGM)
Battery positive voltage is supplied through the EGM 2 fuse to the EGM for the rear window defogger system. When the rear window defogger switch is depressed, the HVAC control module illuminates the rear window defogger indicator, and sends a class 2 message to the EGM to enable the rear window defogger. The EGM enables the rear window defogger by allowing battery positive voltage to the rear window defogger.
The following conditions must be met for rear window defogger to operate:
• The end gate glass position is not below the index position.
• The window express down movement is not requested.
• The window down movement is not requested.
If the end-gate glass is not fully closed, the DIC displays "Tailgate Glass Down" when the rear defogger operation is attempted.
When the rear window defogger switch is pressed for the first time, the defogger cycle lasts 10 minutes. Further operation results in 10 minute defogger cycles.

Rear defrost on 97 buick lesabre not working


your problem is in the window..........if you are getting 12v to the wires that connect to the window the lines in the window must have a break in them ............. they must conduct the dc volts to complete the circut, the lines heat form the voltage running through them thus ridding your window of fog and ice
hope this helps...........thanks for choosing FIX YA!

2003 Chevy Cavlier Rear Window Defroster not working


I had the exact same problem and I had determined that it was in the wires leading to the rear defrost. The main problem area is in a connector located under the footrest for the drivers left foot under the carpet. The wire leading to the rear defrost runs through the drivers side under the plastic moulding in the car frame, the wire is black and the thickest one in the bundle. A large green/blue connector usually melts the plastic around the connection causing it to fail. I fixed this by just getting a new connector similar to my old one from a junkyard and just rewired it, connecting the same wires the connector as before. It is in an awful location but it is possible to do. Be sure solid connections are made and soldered correctly to prevent this from happening again.

06 town and country recently had work done rear defrost does not work maybe wire hook up? where is it located?


You need to pull the plastic trim off that surrounds the rear window and look for a disconnected wire. If not disconnected, look for a break in any of the wires. first, though, check the fuse for that item in the fuse block under the hood.
