2008 FF SE rear defog not working

So LAST winter my rear defogger stopped working due to the connector coming off of the window. I resolved that by applying new conductor solution and sticking it back on the window which was fine. This winter it does not work again but it is still connected- any suggestions? I don't want to have to replace the entire windshield and all the grids look to be in perfect shape?? help!

Thanks! =)

First check your connection again.

and check the fuse box under your hood, according to the owners manual its fuse #2 and its a 30A fuse. if it looks blown then replace.

Owners Manual <look at page 173 for fuse box diagram
