Is the windshield different also? My Ridgeline has wiring embedded in the windshield that de-ices the wiper blades. I don't think US Accord windshields have the embedded heating elements.

EDIT:
Windshield Part #'s
US - 73111-TVA-A31
CAN - 73111-TVA-C31

Canadian models have heated windshields (Page 202 Owner's Manual). On my phone now and can't post a screenshot of that page.

I believe the OP realizes that the Canadian Accords have a heated windshield. He's asking if the wiring is there to convert the US models, and if buying the switch will do the trick.

The answer is probably not because:

  1. The windshield is different; and
  2. The wiring behind the switch location is not there.

We're saying the same thing :smile:

I was saying that because of the difference in the windshields would lead me to believe that there is some wiring (or something internal/integrated) in that windshield to produce the heat. Even if the wiring was there w/o that windshield I doubt the results the OP is trying to achieve are obtainable.

Hey guys,


Anyone been able to figure out if the wiring is already in your accord to support the front wipers de-icer as on the Canadian market models?

I have found the part number for the switch in the left knee instrument panel cluster, but don't want to waste the $ if the rest of it isn't in the car.....

Hi ?
Did you succeed to install heated windshield?
I’m looking for parts diagrams for Canadian build with heated windshield. Want to find harness, and buttons.
thanks
