Ford Escape: Rear window defroster
The rear defroster control is located on the climate control panel and works to clear the rear window of fog and thin ice.
The engine must be running to operate the rear window defroster.
Press to turn the rear window defroster on. An indicator light on the control will illuminate when active. The rear window defroster turns off automatically after a predetermined amount of time, if a low battery condition is detected or when the ignition is turned off or to the accessory position. To manually turn off the rear window defroster at any time, press the control again.
If your vehicle is equipped with both rear defroster and heated mirrors, the same control will activate both. Refer to Heated outside mirrors in the Driver Controls chapter.
Do not use razor blades or other sharp objects to clean the inside of the rear window or to remove decals from the inside or the rear window. This may cause damage to the heated grid lines and will not be covered by your warranty.
