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?
