I thought that once I tried turning the rear defroster on and then off and recall that it still heated the rear window. I will need to try this again.
As far as the battery temp goes, the car is garaged. With an outside air temp around 0f my garage is around 40f, and one mile down the road it seems like the rear defroster is running, and I can't believe that the battery is actually any colder than 40f at that time. Anyone know what temperatures the battery needs to be at in order not to have it run the rear defroster just to heat it up? I would think that using the battery for the 40 mile drive to work, accelerating then regen, over and over would warm the battery enough. Any chance it looks at the air temp inside the car? That is typically around 40 to 50f for my drive. I turn it on full hot for a little while, then turn it off.
