Re: rear defrost/rear foglight buttons
I just went out and checked the switches in my console (in order, l to r):
driver's seat heater, rear defrost, front fog, rear fog, emergency flasher,
blank, blank, ABS on/off, passenger's seat heater.
Start the car and the following light up: both seat heaters, emergency flasher,
Turn on parking lights and they ALL light up. Nothing changes when the
headlights come on. So you are correct, that switch is wired incorrectly.
