My rear defroster tab broke off, bought a kit to glue it back on. So I did that and everything seem fine. But I can't get it to defrost anything. I have checked with a volt meter and I get 14 volts on all the strips. It just won't heat up!
Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem?
Thanks in advanced.

What type of glue did you use? when mine fell off the dealer soldered it back and put it under a heat lamp for a couple of hours and told me not use the defrost for about a day just to make sure it adhered properly.

not sure if that helps. :/

I purchased it from CarQuest parts store. It said it was just for this, tab reinstall. Other then that not sure. Strange thing is I get 14 volts all over the back window. What actually causes the window to heat up? Is there a resistor or a second part of this circuit I not seeing or looking at? I have checked all the fuses. I am lost at this point. I may have to take it to the Dealer :(
