You probably have a weak electrical system, it should hit 13+ volts when you rev it. I'll let someone else help with that, I don't know 'nough 'bout sick alternators or voltage regulators.....
Defroster lines (the rows on the rear window) are easy to scratch, and that's what kills a line. A scratch can be all but invisible. I can't imagine anything else causing a few of the lines to drop out. Clean the window (c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y) and inspect them with a magnifying glass. Parts stores have a dab-on fixer, that completes the electrical circuit. Some other thread here today mentioned that fix.

clean, and tighten the ground that goes from the front of the engine to the body over by the battery.. thats what my prob was..
if that doesn't help.. your alt just might be gettin weak..
