The rear defrost does not work. The button lights up when I push it, but the rear window never defrosts.

Just would like to thank the previous persons post.Had the problem for about 3 weeks and like you said first thing you look for is a burnt fuse but no fuse for the rear defroster.Now how dumb is that! I also changed the relay with no success.That in my opinion should be a recall.My plug in was all burnt and bypassed it and it now works. This problem could cause a fireThanks again for taking the time to post your problem and your find .Saved me lots of agravation and I fixed it myself at a cost of 0
