Hey i have a 97 kia sephia. When i press the rear defogger button no lights turn on the dash board? But when i press the relay it lights up on dash board but dosent work when you press the button.. i have no cluse. So i began looking around where the fuse box is located and noticed that a wire was cut and traced it to the rear defogger button. Through a long struggle i removed the dash board and found the wire connects to the Air bag control unit and noticed it was blown, i purchased a one from a junk yard, re installed the item and i though the defroster was gonna work butno luck, still no light turns on when you hit the rear defrost button... Does anyone have a clue, I need to get this button to work before winter comes... THanks Robert
