It'* an option only available on the SSEi and SSE/SLE. Fairly rare. Runs off of a 50amp fuse. Mine has it. Don't know why. Don't need it that often.

Not sure on the back. Not nearly that much though. Most of the year, I leave my fuse out for the WS. Don't want it running until I need it.

wow why pull so much more then the rear window. i would think the rear windows would pull more due to the size of the window compaired to the bottom of the windshield.

how does the heated windsheild work? Does it just warm the glass from the bottom? If it does, it'* gotta make it very hot to heat the entire piece compared to the strips on the back.
