chevy cavalier rear defrost doesn't work!

Many weeks ago i looked for the problem soon abandoned it! Now I'm back, I checked the fuses, not it, checked the dash switch, it lights up, not it. Any thoughts? haven't tested wires attached to see if the current reaches back glass yet.

Use a 12 volt test light and check between the leads at the rear glass.

Check to see if the ground wire is connected to the lead on the glass. Also check each strip for continuity. Jump the wires from the switch DIRECTLY from a 12v power source - just because it lights up doesn't mean the switch isn't faulty.
