Default 2006 Monte Carlo

Hey guys, I finally had to put the old Bonneville down, and get something newer. It was nickle and diming me to death. So I bought a 2006 Monte Carlo LT.

Problem I am having is, the rear window defroster isnt working.
I have climbed up in the back seat, and checked both of the wires that are soldered onto the window, the both seem tight. I also check the relay that is under the hood. When you push the button inside for the rear defroster, it clicks. so that means its working, (right.)?????
Where do I go from there. Is there also a fuse somewhere that is maybe burnt out... I have looked at the main fuse panel under the hood, and also in the passenger side. all fuses seem to be good.......
What am I missing.....
Thanks.

There is usually a fuse for the defroster, but it is not always labeled. I would check all of the fuses in the cabin one at a time.

Check for voltage at the plug by the rear window. If you have voltage there then check the resistance between the two terminals at the window. Sometimes the wires break inside the glass.
