Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Hi Paul..something like this should work..however a bit of a rework around the existing heated rear window relay will be needed...the relay is only there to switch in a resistor to dim the warning lamp when the side lights are switched on.......

Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Hi Paul...you could probably set it up so that you use the warning light of the rear screen when either or both are on...and just a seperate switch for the front....Steve

Re: Heated front windscreen wiring

Hi Paul...dosent sound like a good idea to me having both on the same switch....first you will be pulling too much current through the same switch..unless you say incorperate a relay.....but you would have to switch both on at the same time when for example you only needed the rear on......Steve
