Default Rear Window Defroster

Hey to the list,

2000 3.2TL, Bose Stereo System. Two issues:

1. The rear window defroster is pretty slow in clearing the window of
condensation in the mornings (5-10 minutes minimum). Normal or not?

2. When the rear defroster is on, FM Stereo reception downright sucks.
Sucks to the point of listening to a CD instead of an extremely scratchy
radio. Anyone else experience this?

Thanks for any information on this.

Much Respect,

Genghis

It is weaker than some other cars I've owned, but my 2000 TL usually clears
it in 3-5 minutes.

I have never experienced any issue with the radio when the rear de-icer was
on.

The antenna wire is actually mixed in with the heating wires in the back
window, so maybe you have a damaged wire or a loose connection to the
window.

Thanks for taking the time to reply; I appreciate your info.

By any chance, is this the same E Meyer that was an AC in the Navy at NHK?

Thanks again,
