Re: Heated rear screen wiring?

It's a plus 1 for an extra fused box. My mate wanted " just one or two " additions to the electrical system when we re-wired his Moggie I put a secondary fuse box inside the car under the dash. Count up how many feeds you need and allow for a least a couple of "spares " positions. My modern car has ...

Re: Heated rear screen wiring?

One option for you to consider is a timer relay that will switch off automatically after a certain time. You will need a " beefy" to cope with the electrical load of a rear windscreen.
