Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Just would like to thank the previous persons post.Had the problem for about 3 weeks and like you said first thing you look for is a burnt fuse but no fuse for the rear defroster.Now how dumb is that! I also changed the relay with no success.That in my opinion should be a recall.My plug in was all burnt and bypassed it and it now works. This problem could cause a fireThanks again for taking the time to post your problem and your find .Saved me lots of agravation and I fixed it myself at a cost of 0
