where is the rear window defroster relay located in a 2004 Toyota Four Runner, would this also control the rear wiper arm?
Try something simple: just open and re-close the rear window. The window has a safety switch that keeps the wiper, washer and heater from working if the window is open. The window settles down (from opening and closing the hatch) over time the window settling triggers the switch. If you open and re-close the window it resets the switch and everything works again. My 2003 4 Runner does this over time. I just open it and re-close it to fix the problem.
how do remove the tailgate's window motor on a toyota 4runner 1997 ?
Some rear window defoggers are filaments built into the rear window that heat up when the rear defogger is turned on. This type of window should not be scraped with an ice scraper.
Turn on the ac if you have it.
The best way to put down back window in a Toyota 4Runner is to put it down with the key fob. However, if that does not work, you can utilize the switch on the dash.
it could need a greasing, but to be safe you should check it to see if any of the parts inside are broken.
the rear window above the defogger
The fuse for the rear defogger is located behind the glove box. Just had mine replaced.
Rear window relay is inside the pillar on drivers side - its easiest if you remove th rear passenger interior side panels
They make kits that are sold in most autoparts stores for repairing the broken wires on the rear defogger. Pretty inexpensive.
in the rear of the car maby?
In most cases controlled by rear window defogger switch
You can find a wiring diagram for the rear window defogger in a 1995 Ford Escort LX Haynes repair manual. The book is available at most auto parts stores.
The front and rear washers share the same reservoir, which is located under the hood. It holds a gallon of fluid.
It's in the top of the rear window, it almost looks like the defogger wires, except it's not a straight wire. Note: If you are having FM reception problems, especially when the rear window defogger is on, it could be that one (or more) of the defogger wires are broken. It'll be in one of two places. The Windwhield or Rear Window. It's a wire inside of the glass. Hope this helps. tj

The interior panel pops off and there is one screw behind the little panel underneath the strap handle.
It's the driver's window defogger
This is normally a resistive heating fixed to the inner surface of the glass of the rear screen.
Not sure about the '76, but the rear window defogger switch on my 1970 Coupe is located at about seat level on the left side of the center console (tunnel) cover. It is about 6" to 7" off the floor and just under the dashboard.
If you'll examine the defroster grid closely, you'll see that the grid is broken/scratched, causing the damaged half to not work.
Read your owner's manual. This information can be found there. No its not, it just shows where the fuse box is under the engine hood. I can't read which one is for rear wiper, or rear defogger. If you are unable to use the rear wiper and defogger, it is likely due to the fact that the rear window is down ever so slightly. I fought this problem for weeks until I rolled the window down and back up. Now the defogger and wiper work!!!
the window has to be all the way down
In the fuse panel inside the passenger side door. The panel cover pulls of from the side of the dash board and should have a schematic printed on the inside of the cover.
With a test light.
