Default 2002 ptcruiser Rear defroster

I was wondering where the fuses are located for the rear defroster on a 2002 pt cruiser. I have checked the pdc control box but can see anything marked with rear defroster. The back windshield wiper works but its not defrosting the ice off. I know the mirror heat is still working so why is the defroster not working . The light does come on where the button is but nothing happens .

Check and see if you are getting 12 volts back at where the wires connect to the grid. I'd bet that there is either a break in the grid on the window or the connection to the window.

Fuse #8 (40 amp green fuse) in the PDC (even though it's not marked for it) is part of that circut. Also it appears that fuse #6 in the interior fuse box (10 amp) is the other part of that circut. It's the panel beside your left knee when you're sitting in the drivers seat. Of course a break in the circut could also be the problem as stated above.

Thanks im going to go and replace the 40 amp 8# fuse. I took it out yesterday and didnt see anything broke. But then i never used a volt meter or anything like that either.
