    Thanks for your input friends. I wasn't sure if the defroster cord conducted heat or electricity at the point of disconnect. Thanks again.

This must be soldered on, it is an electrical connection, a good repair shop or the new car dealer is the best bet to fix this, u can't use glue or any type of adhesive. If you try to do this solder job and apply to much heat the window heater grid will be ruined and then u are stuck, so if u do have a good solder pensil and the correct type of acid free solder u may be able to fix it yourself.

I have a 2003 Alero, replaced relay switch and fuse under the bonet for the rear defrost, all wires hooked up...no lines broke.. rear defrost button lights up , but rear defrost dont work. Are there any...


There is a connector going to rear defrost on the rear window. Disconnect this and check for voltage with defrost on. If this is good, check resistance for the connection to window. This will tell you if the electrical is working or the element is bad for the window if there is a open reading on multimeter.

Rear window just got broke in rain storm. how do you replace it? it has the rear window defogger wires in it too.


Remove the trim thats around the window, run piano string between the body and the glass (wear gloves) that helps break the bond of the adhesive. Go to your local parts to get new adhesive, and your local junk yard should have glass (go to a yard that pulls the part for you, they cost about $80.00 used). I am not to sure how to do the hook-up for the defroster. Email at BIGT_WLM@JUNO.COM and I'll go into more details.

2004 4Runner Rear Wiper and Defroster won't work


I just had the same problem. I have an '04 4Runner and my rear wiper, fluid wash, and defrost stopped working after it was recently serviced. If you had the battery cables disconnected recently here is the solution...Start the engine and lower the rear tailgate window all the way... close the rear window and then turn the engine off. Restart the engine and the wiper,wash, and defrost. should work again. It has something to do with the computer which needs to be rebooted. Good luck.
