So i am trying to think of whats going on i got a new radio but havent installed yet. But i did see my rear defroster isnt working i think,.. i hear the relay click but the back doesnt seem to clean its self as it use to. Then again it has been -40 here so i dunno. Just wondering if this is commin or someone think i have a short in the grid or wiriing or something?

The solder on the tab on the defroster or the radio may have failed. I had some radio reception issues when one of the solder joints on my defroster tab failed seven or eight years ago. The tab finally came completely off five months ago and I soldered both ends of it back in a month or so ago. Radio reception issues have disappeared and of course my defroster is working again.
I used an automotive paste solder called Solder-It. Way easier and safer to use than your typical solid solder and the flux is mixed in.
