Best Answer

the defroster is actually your a/c. it doesn't run much when it's cold outside but it works with your heater to remove the moisture from inside the car. blowing warm dry air on the windshield. just like it removes the moisture (humidity) from inside the car in the summer. the difference is the temp. you have it on. even if the a/c don't work, the heater will still do the job, just not quite as well.

Because it's not a defroster button! It's just the symbol for ventilating the air into the car. It shoudln't be called a defroster since defrosting is meant by heating up the coils that you see at the back of the car. I'm pretty no car has wires in the front!
