View Full Version : Rear Defroster Not WOrking

05-21-2008, 11:11 AM
More of a general question than a Grand Am specific question but it seems my rear defroster has stopped working entirely... I push the button and the light (on the button) comes on but the rear window never defrosts. Kind of a pain in the ass when it's -30 (Celsius) out and you can't see out your back window!! Any ideas, starting points, anything at all?????

Make sure you or someone else have not unplugged it. Then check the traces for any breaks in the element. They do make a repair kit but I have never used one. And since the light comes on it is NOT your fuse. Could also be a break in the wire from the switch to the window. A multi meter would be a big help here.

I agree fully with all that...
