Rear defrosters stopped working 2012 Camry
I know I just made a topic about the backup camera already, but since I FINALLY decided to make a post about that, I figure what's one more topic about another issue that's been plaguing me for a couple of years? Seriously though, I promise this is the last topic for today. I'm not trying to spam the boards.
That being said, this problem existed a lot longer than my backup camera issue so I'm almost positive the 2 are unrelated. When I first bought the car (certified used back in 2014), the rear defrosters always worked poorly, and then one day they just flat out stopped working. I'm positive the car was in an unreported accident before I got it, though I won't get into why I know that, however I believe that's why there were issues with the rear defrosters.
I pulled the side panel off of the passenger side of the rear window, and while there was a loose connection, tightening it up didn't work. Frankly, now that it's hot out, i'm not sure how I would test if it's working or not. I have a multimeter but I have no idea how to use it, so I don't think that'll do me much good, unless someone can explain to me like i'm 5 how to test with it.
Does anyone have any advice as to what to check and how to test if it worked or not? This past winter is frankly the last winter I would like to deal with a frozen back window. Thank you!
