Sorry but you have lost me. You accept it is illegal to have the car running whilst unattended but appear to think its OK providing the ignition and doors are locked and the alarm is on.
The car will still be running and unattended thus illegal.
For the odd few days its cold enough to be an issue why bother. I just scrape the screen with a hard rubber scraper that does no damage to the car or environment.
And when you have made changes to the vehicle wiring any problems will be yours to sort, Kia will not entertain a warranty claim after you have tampered, quite rightly so.
