2012 Impala Rear defroster / defogger stopped working. How do I troubleshoot?

Asked by Jan 21, 2016 at 02:05 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Impala LTZ

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Rear defrost/defog stopped working a few weeks ago. Since this back window
was replaced (a stick impaled the seal when a branch fell on the car a couple
of years ago-and the seal is part of the window), I want to know what & how to
check before just going back to the body shop about the window itself.  -
Without costing too much to rule out other issues. Thanks.

More often than not, the issue is a burnt connection in the wiring harness. http://www.impalaforums.com/diy-how-tos-and-write-ups/251292- rear-defroster-burnt-wire-fix-write-up.html
