Question Rear Defroster not working

Hi all,
I am a new owner of a 98 528i which I LOVE, the only problem with the car is that the rear defroster only works on 2 pairs of lines from the driver side to the center of the window, and when I activate the defroster the FM radio goes to static. I had a friend who's a mechanic check and he said that there is power going to the defroster. There doesn't appear to be any breaks in the defroster lines and i don't want to replace the window if I don't have to. I'm hoping someone can help, and keep in my I'm definitely NOT a mechanic!
