Some times it is the button that has a timer

Posted on Jan 11, 2013

Testimonial: "Demister has a 15 minute timer apparently. The switch is stuck on the ON position and will not switch off. Could this be caused by a faulty relay switch? If so, how do I locate this switch to change it? Many thanks."

Hi, my car, a toyota caldina, has three buttons on the dashboard that i don't understand. One button has a sign of a windscreen with a wiper and current going through it with an ON light indicator. Another...

One is the rear demister (front demister is in the center console with the heater). But it could also be the windscreen cleaner pump, if you mean on the stalk. (up, front window, down, reap window).

One is the fog lamps if fitted

The last is an inverter buit into the car so you can run 100Volt domestic devices (like laptops/shavers and stuff). I think the japanese have 100 volt domestic power. You'll find the *** power socket on the back of the centre console under a little hatch, easiest to see from the back seat. Mostly you want it turned off.

Rear defogger not working fuse is ok but switch does not light up on a 1993 caprice


Check operation of the control relay for the rear defogger.
Check all wiring/cable connections on the demister circuit for integrity.
(The demister draws a heavy current, which can cause fatigue/overheating of spade type connections).

My demister in rear windscreen not working


Do you have rear window tinting?( the plastic sheet type ) If so,check that the edges over the demister tapes have not curled up pulling the tapes off the window and diconnecting them. If they need repair, a small bottle of tape repair solution should be available from a spare parts retailer.

Windscreen demister


Have you taken the dash apart and checked the cable on the switch? Or tested the switch if it's electronic?
