    I have an 05 sport edition, just changed the battery before the cold hits, and now i noticed neither the rear window defroster or rear window wont work, could it be just a fuse?

    Check the computer in the tailgate for connections and corrosion. Pull the interior trim panel with clip removers, then peel back the weather stripping, and check the piece where all the wiring harnesses back there meet up

    It could be, but that's another possibility. I'd just check the fuses and if you don't see a problem there, move onto the computer
