using water temp?If air is not working to defrost and there isn't one of those defrost buttons in youre car you might want to try one of the following; depending on the outside temp, the water temp will vary too. In my city of San Diego i could get away with using cold water on my windshield and windows but the temp never drops below 40 so if you've got a thick layer of ice u might want to use roomtemp water or lukewarm (caution:it might not be a good idea to use scalding hot or boiling water on a window for obious reasons)and once ur ready to drive u can go to the nearest car electric and get one installed

How do i fix my 1997 jeep defrost vent All the other functions work but i cannot get the air to come out my windshield defrost vent.?

The acturators that control the defrost and vents often become inopterave because the mechanical link from the acturator to the divertors breaks. You can see if this is the porblem by looking just to the right and above the gas pedel. I have just tryed adding a screw and some glue to see if that works. The only problem is, that I had to remove the entire dash to get to the diverters and acturators. About 4 hours so far. But I am a shade tree machamic.
