Default Window Defroster Not Working

Hey guys,

About a year ago my rear windows was broken by a kid in the neighborhood. I had a new one installed but everytime I press the defroster button it doesnt do anything on the window. I checked the fuse and the light on the button comes on. Does anyone know what might be going on?

Have you checked to see if power is getting to the connection on the window?

Since you have power getting to the defroster connection this means there is an open connection between the heater element and ground. Make sure the other side of the grid has a good ground connection. If you have close to zero volts on the ground side of the grid when compared to ground then the ground side is ok. You need to check for cracks in the grid lines that will stop the current flow. I would suspect the problem is near the positive connection if the ground side is ok.
