nv325xiT is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi,

It’s been very cold here for the last week or two. Yesterday when I started the car there was a strong burning smell. Electrical I thought at the time. It passed.

Today I noticed a hot spot on the rear window defroster. Real hot. Can’t hold my finger on it hot. The rear windows on wagons have many horizontal heating elements along with two vertical elements. The hot spot is at the intersection of one of each element.

I suspect these two problems are related.

For now I’m turning the rear window defroster off. Any idea how to have the rear window defroster not come on every time I start the car?

-Neil

If I read the “tips and tricks” thread correctly…

The heater comes on automatically in cold (below 37 degrees) weather.
The vertical elements may be the antennae for the keyless entry.

The two elements may have shorted together. Any suggestions on how to fix?
