So my car has rear defrost with the switch connected at the dash and the defrost back glass of course. The problem is that only the connection point at the right side of the glass has the wire connected. The driver side connection point is bare.

So my questions are:

1. Where does the wire come from to connect to the driver side connection point on the glass? There is a wire separated coming from the wire bundle that runs along the driver side back there, but it doesn't have the proper style connector for the defrost connection tab at the glass, so I have no idea what it may have been connected to at some point.

2. Is the connection point on the right side a simple ground (because that is what it is on mine anyways)?

3. Any idea why the PO had ran a wire from the inigition coil to the trunk? It is just back there but not connected to anything.

Thanks!

Brown wires are always grounds on 2002s (unless a PO has messed with the wiring); so the brown wire coming off your defroster grid is the ground. FYI most 02s defroster grids have either partially or totally died by now, unless the backight has been replaced so even with it properlly connected it may not function. Check archives for troubleshooting.

As for your third question:

Any idea why the PO had ran a wire from the inigition coil to the trunk? It is just back there but not connected to anything.

He was gonna power something that only worked with the ign on--like a trunk light or something similar...
