GM Recalls Windshield Wash Heaters

When/Who is going to be the first manufacturer to recall the DEF vehicles for the DEF heaters? Imagine that, being stuck cause your DEF heater isn't working properly!! Windshield Wash Heater is much easier to live with, heck you can even still drive it to the dealer....NOT SO with a faulty DEF heater.

My guess is next summer. The manufacturer...well, your guess is as good as mine.

these two things arent even close to each other in design , and if the defaults the system is already fuse linked , it will also do idle only if a problem is detected . there is absloutly no fire hazard to the def system .

Good thing it wasn't the tailgate heater that went bad. Don't want those poor folks to get frost bit on their hands. Ha ha ha

Our DEF heater isn't an actual heater. It's on a recirculation system. Warm DEF comes back from the engine and heats the tank. The truck will run just fine with the DEF frozen.
