Hi to everyone.

The rear heated window starts to become clear after approx 15 mins I turn on the switch for mirrors and rear window (almost when the system goes off automatically).

As a result the system cannot make clear the window. :(

This happens all the time and I was wondering if someone had the same problem and how did he solve it.

Thanks

Are you sure you don't have a water leak in the boot/hatch. sounds to me like there is a lot of water/dampness to clear. I find that mine clears well before 15mins.

Yes I'm sure.
Nevertheless I do not find it resonable to have the window clear after 15 mins.
As I said, the window starts become clear after 15 mins. This doesn't make sence because most of the trips inside town lasts about 20 mins.

I own a Hyundai Accent also and the window starts to become clear after 1-2 mins. In 5 mins the window is 90% clear.

Thanks

my rear window sometimes takes a little longer to start clearing, it only does this when i also have the heated front window & all the lights on etc but i am only talking about a minute extra and so far i have always switched off the rear screen before it has ever timed out on its own ( even when iced up on the outside & not just a foggy interior )

it might be worth unplugging the wires on the wingmirrors as this may help if there is a lack of power getting to the rear screen.

might also be worth unplugging the wires from the screen itself and making sure they are making a nice clean contact :L

It doesn't hear logical to unplug the wires due to the fact that the car is two and a half years old but I'll try it.
Additionally I've bought from the market a special liquid to cover the rear window in order to reduce concentration of the humidity. I''ll let you know if this works.. :L
