Defogger switch lamp Question

Post by Federico »

A simple one: When is the defogger switch lamp supposed to be on? Mine lights up only with the switch engaged.
Shouldn't it also light up together with the dash lights?

Yes! it should be dim with parking lights and full on with the switch engaged, i think there's a resistor and a diode or something similar inline, you could check that :) on the ETM those components are detailed
