Rear window defroster is not working and I'm wondering if

Customer Question

rear window defroster is not working and I'm wondering if it's a relay, and, if so, where is it? Thanks! Jim Burford
JA: How many miles are on the car? How old is the battery?
Customer: !05,XXX, but this happened at less than 100k. Battery is a year old.
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: 2004 Isuzu Rodeo S. 3.5L V6
JA: Are you fixing your Rodeo yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I would like to. All I've done thus far is see if it's a blown fuse, which it isn't.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, I think that covers it. Thanks.
