My rear defroster is not working and I am not getting any…

My rear defroster is...

My rear defroster is not working and I am not getting any radio signal through the antenna is there a fuse for this

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides the radio, are any other circuits affected?

No. But the antenna is in the rear window with the defroster and these are the two problems I'm having

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

06 Altima

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've looked for the great connector but it must be behind one of the interior panels I've checked the fuse box but I don't see a fuse for defroster or the antenna

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Grid connector

No power at the glass, we have checked that. That's why I was asking if there is another fuse somewhere other than the drivers side fuse panel for the defroster

i​s your car a 4 or 6 cylinder

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
