Great question. I never have to use mine. You check your manual to be sure it was turned on?I live in NH and wondered how long it takes for the rear defroster to work? Wanted to clear the fog off the back window after rain and waited several minutes and got nothing? Is that normal?
Thanks for the reply. I have scheduled a service appointment. It is just not working .its not instant, when its humid out and rains my car fogs up but maybe after 10 minutes of rear defroster it all dissipates and then the rear defroster i think turns it self off after x amount of time to.
It is the rear defroster that isn't working. The windshield and side view mirrors moisture clears fine. I have scheduled a service appointment to have it looked at. The rear defroster/defogger is not working at all .If it's a matter of moisture built up inside the car then either the front defroster needs to be on or the A/C compressor needs to be turned on with the temp on warm for cold days to remove the moisture.
The A/C compressor is always ON anytime you use the windshield defroster no matter the temperature setting. That's how the moisture inside the car gets removed.
Wonder how that happened? Was the rear glass tinted when you took delivery?The defroster grid on my rear window was broken in several places so Infiniti is replacing the rear window with an OEM window since the vehicle is not even a year old. Sad that I am without my red sport for several days but they did give me a loaner vehicle.
It may have had aftermarket tint that was removed before you took delivery and someone screwed it up.We have no idea. Maybe someone cleaned the inside with something rough before I took delivery. The car had 6,000 miles on it when I bought it. It was the original window with no aftermarket tint. The window does have a slight tint like all the rear windows do.
