First things first, make sure that the wires are connected at BOTH sides of the rear window for the defroster. There needs to be a path for the burrent to flow, so both need to be connected. If not, you can purcahse kits to re attach them, or if you are handy enough...solder it yourself. If they are connected, push the button that turn the defroster on...if you hear a click or a change in the sound of the engine (like its under load) then the defroster is working, but you have a connection problem between the device up front and the wires on the window. hope that helps
how do remove the tailgate's window motor on a toyota 4runner 1997 ?
Try this simple fix. Put the window down then put it all the way back up. Over time and a few bounces the rear window settles down just a bit and this triggers a safety that prevents the defroster from running with the window down, only it's not down enough for you to notice it.
you have to make sure there is no short and check for voltage amount at the strips of the window to make sure defroster is working
what are the colors of the wires for the rear window defroster coming from the rear window to the defroster bottom ? can any body help me
It is part of the rear window defroster.It is part of the rear window defroster.
What your seeing is the cars radio antenna. Your defroster is on your back window.
Had the same problem. Make sure the rear window is all the way up. This is probably a safety feature? Your wipers and rear defroster should work.

The 1996 Chevy Cavalier rear window defroster fuse can be found in the fuse box. The rear window defroster fuse will be in the second column, fifth from the top.
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.

On a ( 2000 ) Lincoln Navigator the rear window defroster switch is located in the dash below the headlight switch
Check the fuse first. Then check, with a volt meter, to see if there is 12 volts D.C. to the defroster at the place where it is plugged in. If you have voltage then look at the defroster heat strips and check for a break somewhere. There are repair kits for a broken power strip. If the fuse is good and you have no voltage, check the wiring, switch, & relay.
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.

There can be several reasons a rear defroster fails even when the light on the defroster switch indicates it is on. The most likely reason is that one of the metal defroster tabs along the side of the back window has separated from the defroster. If the defroster tabs check out as still attached to the defroster then you need to do a little checking with a volt meter. The first thing to check is the voltage directly on the tabs themselves. This should be around 12-14 volts. If the voltage is zero then there is very likely a broken wire someplace between the defroster relay and the defroster. If you have 12-14 volts a the defroster tabs then there is something going on with the grid which is normally broken defroster elements, those long thin horizontal lines on the back window.
