The strips that are attached to the glass that run horizontally always suffer from the age old problem of corrosion. The best way to tell if it is these strips that is causing the problem is to hook up an ohm meter (x10 setting) and check for continuity. If this is good, the relay that feeds the defroster is probably bad or disconnected. This is located under the dash by the fuse box. Check to see if it clicks, and further check to see if you actually get 12v at the contacts back at the back glass. (12-50v setting). If you get 12v and the strips check infinite ohms, problem is, of course, the strips. Best fix is a new glass, but there are kits available that might be able to fix it (various results). Good luck.
