Having problems with your 2000 Chrysler Sebring ?
Rear window defroster does not work - light says it is on
\015 2002 sebring convertible rear window defroster does not defrost. the light indicates it is on. Chrysler mechanic, without looking at it, said you will need to replace whole window (about $800 including labor). Then i went on line and started to educate myself and now i see it could be less of a problem and less costly, i.e., defroster kits!! i am a female who does have to learn an little before approaching car mechanics so they do not feel so inclined to rip us off. no matter, please confirm that there is a less costly way out of this $800 dilemna, or not! thank you\015
I have had this same problem with my 2000 Sebring Convertible. I was told that the rear defrost is often a problem in convertibles and hatch-backs. My problem is very obvious though. When I turn the rear defrost on - the light does turn on (as if it was working), but the power does not get through. There are small 'clips' on each side of the window that hold the wires. After time and putting the top up and down, the clips can come off. My passenger side clip is currently hanging - very visible. Many mechanics are afraid to fuss with putting it back on for fear that they cause more damage than good. Look on the sides of the rear window and you may see the problem. Good luck.
