My 92 Acura Vigor’s blower motor has died and after some research the 1200$ price tag to replace it is not going to happen seeing how I only paid 800$ for the car three years ago and its at 297,500 miles. What I am looking for is an alternative defrosting/heating solution. I live in Denver Colorado and I am looking for the windshield to defrost and be able to keep a temperature that will keep the windshield clear while driving. I am not looking to be toasty warm or anything. I do not know what wattage, amps, temperature I should look from. I have see from some saying from 120/15/75 - 500/45/175. Aside this and a few other issues due to the mileage the car works good enough for commuting to work seeing how I go less than 10 miles.
I have been looking at 12 volt heaters, cigarette lighter or in line heaters. It would be nice to able to just use one that I can plug directly into the cigarette lighter and not have to do any wiring but all the ones I have found have very very low reviews for either not really heating, just defrosting a few inches of space or just blowing the fuse with in a few minutes. The cigarette lighter in the Vigor runs off a 10 amp which make me believe I would have the same issue.
