Check the tech info, I think that there is something about the defroster in there. But I'm not positive. When the defroster kicks off, can you turn it back on??? Because the defrosters are on timers that turn off automaticaly. I can't see anyway really that the door locks would be tied in with the defroster. Just the defroster lines in the back window for any breaks and check your connections.

I believe the defroster is on a circuit breaker, One of those "heat-up" kind.

How long after it stops working does it start working?

I believe that the Rear defroster automatically shuts off after 15 minutes of driving. Not sure how the Door locks are related though
