my rear defroster isn't working at all, the button lights up and the heated mirrors work, also the fuse in the box under the hood seems to be good. any ideas?

I've bought this and used it before last winter on my father's '06 GM and it worked like a charm and is friggin' amazing. It's not cheap, but it's the only one that I've ever seen work and hold up over time. The cheap kits in auto parts stores just don't work.

That's exactly what my father's looked like thanks to the illegals at the car wash

The kit I posted should work, but it's very important to follow the instructions to a "T"...the only thing I did different was to wait 24 hours before plugging it back in.
