Need wiring diagram of rear-window defogger circuit for 2008 Chevy Impala LT
i just fixed my car to the exact question above, it took 20 minutes total. yes I\'m good with a wrench, but this fix doesn\'t reqire you to be.
Problem: Rear defroster doesn\'t work, but the fuse is good and the little light comes on on the button.
Answer: Go to front passenger kick panel where the "other" fise box is and remove the pastic panel, it just pops straight up. Under the fuse block is a white plug that connects front wire harness to the rear harness. this is where the problem is. pull the connector off the body, my plugslide straight back. Now flip the whole connector over, there you\'ll see the burnt spot on the plug. losse, corroded connection causes melt down. this stuff happens. my car has a purple wire going into the plug and a black one coming out, this is the rear defroster wire. cut the purple wire aleast a half inch before the plug and cut the black one coming out of the plug the same, always leave a little wire incase you ever want to reuse that terminal, standard rule. now take two butt connectoers and a four inch piece of ten gauge and splice the purple and black wires back together. lots of current so DO NOT use 12-14 gauage wire, it will melt. and Wa-La, its fixed!! since you dont have to do the trouble shooting and chase down the wires like i did, should take you ten minutes to fix.
Now if this doesn\'t fix your car, then don\'t pay me!!
If this DOES fix your car, then take your wife out to dinner with the $150.00 i just saved you from having to take it to the dealer,
(they would sale you new connectors and harness)
