Windshield Wiper Warmers like the rear window defrosters? Answered
A few years ago, someone asked about windshield wiper warmers. No real responses. I'm asking again. The issue is that in the northern states, the wipers get iced up, and it happens even while you're driving. We know how to do this for the back window, which won't save anyone's life if the front one is iced over. We know how to use a hot wire to cut foam. So we know how to heat wire. Some of the newer cars hide the wipers below the glass, so defrosters don't help much. And washer fluid doesn't work nearly as well as you might think. Hot liquids freeze faster than cold liquids, but the goal here is to warm up the wiper blades. How would we go about making a warm wire setup that can be connected to the battery for slow warming and lay under the wiper blade area? Any guesses? It's getting cold here in Michigan! You'd think one of the automotive companies would figure this out, but they clearly think we all have garages and live in warm states. I'd like to see some responses that wouldn't be too difficult for a novice - I don't care about technical terms, I just want to know how to wire it up so it works.
