I sat in the car and with just the ignition on and not the engine running i put on the heated rear window to try find where it was coming from. It was somewhere at the front and not actually at the rear. It is puzzling because if there was an actual wiring fault, surely it would blow the fuse?
The rear window and heated mirrors are working and the switch lights up.
I can only think that maybe the relay is over heating.
Will just have to find the relay now lol.
