Asked by Sep 27, 2015 at 07:17 PM about the 2005 Kia Sportage

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The defroster light comes on but the rear window does not heat. Fuse is good and the relay is good??

2 Answers

Most likely the connection between the heat source power wire and the glass grid. I went through this on my car, and what you describe is exactly the same--- button shows defrost is on and fuse and relay good and that turned out to be the problem, They wanted to install an entire new rear window, I declined..it can get expensive.
