Question about 2005 Toyota Camry Solara
The rear window defroster doesn't heat up very much and doesn't defrost. the main 40amp fuse is OK and all other fuses are also all OK. tested the grid and can get it to go to ground - so i don't think the problem is the grid on the window.
toyota wants $95/hour for up to 6 hours to find out where the problem is.
Thoughts on what I can do to find it??
2006 Solara Comvertible - same problem as everyone else. The defroster just stopped working (well, 2 lines in the upper portion work somewhat) several months back. The light comes on and obviously power is there since 2 of the lines do something. The dealer also told me the WHOLE top would have to be replaced...thousands of dollars. I thought I might have to replace the window but apparently that can't even be done. They actually told me a repair kit exists to do it yourself at Pep Boys, yet they won't attempt to fix. Pep Boys confirmed kit exists but won't tounch it either, Window replacement company won't either. So, again the consumer is screwed, I guess. Obviously if those paid to do mechanical work can't or won't do it, why would a novice be able to? I am so angry! No more Toyotas for me. My buying experience was a whole other story that turned me off from this car to start with. Probably when someone gets killed, they will be forced to look at this. Convertibles are notorious for poor visibility in the rear and now with the windshield completely frosted or covered with snow and iced while driving due to the weather conditions, it is UNSAFE! Is there any help for this problem?
