there are probabally wires for your 3rd break light (if you have it) and your rear defroster...i would imagine the defroster would be more difficult to reconnect although I haven't had to do it before.

What would cause the window to shatter like that?

Could the defroster being left on have caused it to crack?

Doesn't the defroster shut off after so long, though? I've never used the one in my Prelude, but in my Civic, it shuts off after like 10 minutes.

If the timer fails to shut it off, it can crack the window.

I also found a few instances online about glass that is tempered wrong just shattering for no reason.
