Van died suddenly...

Driving home today, raining, but not torrential and no big puddles. Turn onto my street and the van dies. No dash warning lights but the dash illumination lights (and I assume headlights) stayed on.

Re: Defogger Switch / Relay ?

Well, thanks for that info. I'm not an expert in things electrical but I'm pretty good at trying stuff and then going, "Well, that didn't work!" :shock: :-D
