Toyota 4Runner: Rear Window Defogger System does not Operate

Toyota 4Runner Service Manual / Vehicle Exterior / Window / Glass / Window Defogger System / Rear Window Defogger System does not Operate

DESCRIPTION

When the back door power window is fully closed and the rear window defogger switch is turned on, a rear window defogger activation request signal is sent via the LIN communication line to the air conditioning amplifier.

WIRING DIAGRAM


CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • Inspect the fuses for circuits related to this system before performing the following inspection procedure.
  • Since the window defogger system has functions that use LIN communication, first confirm that there is no malfunction in the communication system by inspecting the LIN communication functions in accordance with the "How to Proceed with Troubleshooting" procedures. Then, conduct the following inspection procedure.
  • Since the window defogger system does not operate if the back power window is not operating normally, confirm that the back power window of the power window system is operating normally before performing troubleshooting.
