Time to Defrost | Maple Street Auto Repair

Tracy’s Automotive will help if your defroster and/or defogger won’t clear your view.

It’s the last day of the year and you haven’t decided whether you want to sit by the TV while wearing your jammies and sucking on a hot drink or if you want to go to one of Wichita’s many celebrations.

In part, you really don’t want to go out in the cold weather. And your car’s defroster isn’t  working. You can’t keep your windshield clear.

Lifewire.com explains: “Since there are two types of car defrosters, the reason yours stopped working depends on the type you’re dealing with.

“Front car defrosters typically use air from the vehicle’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to melt ice and clear foggy windows. In contrast, rear defrosters typically rely on a grid of hot wires affixed to the window glass. There are exceptions, but you can find these types of defrosters in most cars.”

Lifewire says these are the most likely reasons for a front defroster to stop working:

  • Broken or stuck controls
  • Vent and air intake problems
  • Coolant problems
  • Blower motor problems

These are the most likely reasons for a rear defogger to cease functioning:

  • Broken defroster grid
  • Worn out grid
  • Broken defroster connections
  • Bad defroster switch or fuse

The fastest way to find out what’s wrong is to consult the trusted Wichita auto repair technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
