RE: re:defroster switch

Actually I am not sure if the defroster wires are good, but I think the only
way to test that end of the unit, is if I know I can get 12V back there(or I
guess I could hook a battery directly to the tabs on the window.  I figure
to work on the circuit from the beginning i.e. the switch. Also once I get
the switch fixed, I plan on trying that paint on stuff-if the wires on the
window are no good.

I got the switch back in, and drove it tonight-rear window fogged up, so I
tried the switch-I don't think I have it cleaned well enough, or I need to
put a stronger spring in there-maybe from one of those ball point pens. What
happens when I hit the switch-is nothing, but if I hold the rocker in a
certain position, I can hear the relay click over. It is too late now to do
anything, but next weekend I will pull the switch again, try to clean it
better and try to find a stronger spring. The spring is what helps the
contact, right?

Are you sure you can get heat from the defroster element?  Not much point
sorting the switch unless the window warms up.  I can't remember if you had
already checked that.
