CAUTION - Conductors

If you want to defrost and defog the front windshield, refer to “Windshield defrosting and defogging” in this section.

The rear window defroster automatically turns off after approximately 20 minutes or when the ignition switch is turned off. To turn off the defroster, press the rear window defroster button again.
