    My Truck is Famous :) Thanks AlphaTherm Heated Washer Fluid is BACK

    I wanted to say THANK YOU to Alpha Therm for my new Heated Washer Fluid.

    a couple weeks ago i went to the Dealer to have some warranty work done. I told them I DECLINE the Heated Washer Fluid Removal.

    When i went to pickup the Car the salesman told me "I feel so BAD they accidently removed the washer fluid Module." I said ok well not much i can do about it now, so a few days later I recieve a check for $100 from GM.

    I went to alphatherm website and ordered the aftermarket piece so I can have my washer fluid back. after ordering it I noticed the company address is only 5 minutes from my house. So i called them to see if I can pick it up instead of having to wait for the shipping.

    Ater a few hours I got a call from Joe. he asked what kind of car i have and I told him a 2008 Excalade EXT. He asked if i would be willing to let them video tape the installation if they refyunded the money and gave me the part for free.

    OF COURSE i said yes who wouldnt. So i went and got it installed.

    Today I got the emal telling me the Video was up on there website. Here is the link, Scrool down and you will see the video with my Escalade.

    I have the units and just waiting for the switches from GM to install them in my 2010's. Really miss that feature, not too much longer.

    how are you planning on installing the unit without previous wiring to hook into? Are you going to wire the switch from the wiper leads or??

    One of my companies makes wire harnesses for fuel injection, so the wiring is not an issue, and we have a 07' sitting at the shop and have the wiring drawings from the manual, one of my guys spent a few hours with the 07' and the 10's and told me as soon as he gets the switches he will do the install, it's nice when the guy running shop is doing the work. I will get pics when it happens, and who knows maybe another side business in the works.

    Just to add some more information...Alphatherm also makes and sells a second unit designed for those who have no wiring...it fits the same and only needs a power line to battery/fuse box....works automatically, no interior wiring required.

    Anyone with an 09 or 10 installed AlphaTherm's "on demand" aftermarket unit http://www.alphathermusa.com/heated-wash-AT-38OD.html (Carl - our resident "snowman"???)? My only concern would be having the heating element running constantly all year long, even when you wouldn't be needing it - but I suppose you could just pull the fuse until winter. Got my 09 in October of last year, just before the snows started, & that is one feature my 07 had that I really miss (as do most of you as evidenced by this thread).

    Did you get this installed? I would love to see some pics as I'm in the same boat with my 2010. I guess I could have the full time unit installed, but I would rather have that "factory installed" look and control.

    Man I'm so tempted to order this item!! Only thing is that I guess when ever I have to go to the Dealership for repairs I would have to remove it.

    There is a member here that had the recall done, then the dealer installed the AlphaTherm.
