glad to see this fix has worked for other people. to the poster who had the new fuse melt: sounds like something else is wrong with the element in the back. almost seems like a short, but it should definitely pop the fuse first! that's crazy. I had the car for about six months after the fix and it worked great the whole time, and it was heavily used during the winter. my brother in law has had 2 other impaled with the exact same problem. it's crazy that chevy hasn't actually addresses the issue.
