first of all, i know mb doesn't call it a defroster, but the correct nomenclature escapes me. defogger maybe? anyway, i have a problem that just makes no sense to me. when i engage the switch (it gives resistance when pushed, and the light comes on and stays on) a spot about the size of a quarter defrosts, and nothing else. the spot is on the fifth wire from the roof, and about 18" from the c-pillar. if it was the top or bottom wire working and none of the others, it would make sense. or many other combinations, but how possibly could current make it to a wire in the middle of the system, and then make it to the center, or near center, of an individual wire? this spot is actually enough to see through if i move my head just right. anyway-any ideas would be much appreciated. thanks-mick

so is the heater something that is actually part of the wire? this doesn't sound like something that can be fixed.
