Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Plug the wire harness connector into the rear window switch pod. Connect the battery negative cable.

Turn the ignition switch to the On position. Back probe the rear window defogger relay output circuit cavity of the rear window switch pod wire harness connector. Depress and release the rear window defogger switch. There should be battery voltage.

Depress and release the rear window defogger switch again. There should be zero volts. If OK, go to Step 6.

If not OK, replace the faulty rear window switch pod.

(6) Depress and release the rear window defogger switch. The rear window defogger indicator lamp should light. If the indicator lamp does not light, replace the bulb with a known good unit and test again. If the lamp is still inoperative, replace the faulty rear window switch pod.
