How do you find out where the wiring for the rear defogger connects to the back window on a 2002 Dodge Neon SXT?
If it's like my 2001 neon, you pull on the plastic panels on each side of the rear window. They pop off. The wires are in the middle on each side.
The Rear Wiper is not working on a '97 Wrangler having checked the wire connector at the hard top and there is power to the window washer but not to the wiper or the defogger Would this be a fuse?
I have had the exact same problem with my 1990 wrangler, I found out that unless the handel that allows you to open and shut the rear window is not in the exact closed positio…n and the window is closed tight in place, the wiper will not work but the washer will. Just for fun once I realized this I tried to turn the rear wiper on with the window open and it did not work until I shut it. Hope it works for you.
Answer . They make kits that are sold in most autoparts stores for repairing the broken wires on the rear defogger. Pretty inexpensive.
Where can you get a wiring kit for the rear window defogger of 2000 Chevy Metro if you have the grid installed on replacement window defogger not original equipment but set up for it?

Could be a bunch of different reasons: 1. The "relay" is out. 2. The breaker/fuse is out 3. There is a tear in the grid on the windshield or the grid went bad in genera…l. 4. The switch is not working. 5. Etc etc etc I had a problem with this in my car (a Chevy) and the dealer was charging $120 for diagnostics on it. You can do you own little diagnostic work to help narrow it down. Push the defogger switch in and listen for a little click from the relay. It's easier to hear the click if you take the panel off where the relay and fuses are located. If you hear a click then that should mean that the switch and relay are good. Next you might want to check out the breaker. Refer to your owners manual and there should be some diagrams for which fuses are which and what you're looking at in general when you open up the fuse box. You can try replacing the relay ($10 at AutoZone) or some other fuse which may be related to it for very little money. You can also test the connection to the grid with a voltmeter and see if any current is running there. Having a little knowledge of electronics can really help save you a lot of money in this situation because you can use your voltmeter and try and pinpoint the problem yourself. Good luck!
Answer . In my case the switch to the defogger was fried and had to be replaced. I would first determine where the problem is, then get a haynes manual and see how hard it …might be to fix the problem yourself. If you can't do it then take it to the dealer.
Hi If it is the "track" across the rear screen type it can be repaired by using the silver 'paint' you can get from Radio Shack type stores. But do not switch it on for 24… Hrs after that you can give it another coat, then give it another 12 hrs.. best of luck .
Some rear window defoggers are filaments built into the rear windowthat heat up when the rear defogger is turned on. This type ofwindow should not be scraped with an ice scrap…er.
You can find a wiring diagram for the rear window defogger in a1995 Ford Escort LX Haynes repair manual. The book is available atmost auto parts stores.
in the rear of the car maby?
We have the same problem. Check the fuse box under the hood. There is a relay AND a fuse there. If the light on the dash comes on, it may be one of two things. A) the grates i…n the rear window may be broken, or, B) there is a module (small computer) inside the trunk that may be bad. The dealer should be able to diagnose the problem for a small diagnostic fee. Then purchase the part from your local auto parts store (they will need to order it) and replace it yourself.

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.
In Car Fuses and Wiring
This is normally a resistive heating fixed to the inner surface of the glass of the rear screen.
In Chevy Malibu
If the correct window was installed ther should be tabs the connect the wires to about half way up on the sides of the window.
In GM and GMC
The model of GM ? Why ? The wire is connected @ the glass element typically , it could be traced back to the front .
