The connection between the wire power supply and the heat element grid in glass. That is what happened to my Toyota, drivers side down low. You don't say what car, year, anything but the light on button can be on showing power on, but since there is no short all that will happen is the grid not heat

Sometimes the grid on the glass itself can be damaged and break the circuit. If it is on the surface it can be repaired.

FoR, the element grid in my Toyota is in between the laminates of the safety glass. I don't know if Ford does it that way.
