I drove for about 15 minutes last night and saw no change whatsoever. The orange LED lights up when I press the button (and stays lit) for the rear defroster, but I'm not seeing any results.
Is there a fuse I should check? the orange LED comes on and stays on when I press that button, but I'm pretty sure nothing's happening
edit: this is the only problem thing I've ever noticed that's wrong with my car lol
The relay and fuse is located under the hood.
The fuse is in a long strip with several fuses in it, it is number 6 from the top in that strip that is located in the furthest back (rear), right side position looking from the front bumper. The position is number 7 and it is a 50 amp.
Look for the "RRDEF Relay", it is the third back from the front bumber on the far left of the box.
Pin 5 should have the battery 12 volts on it, it is the pin closest to the front of the car. (If there is voltage there check and / or replace the relay. You can have someone operate the rear window defog switch and listen or feel for the click of the relay.)
To verify the voltage is at the rear window, using a meter, wrapping the probes with foil and touch the foil (only) to the printed elements on the glass, about midway down, at the far left and right looking for 12v, there.
If there is voltage, you have a very slow heat element, but it is still working and it more than likely not be replaced.
