I think that is the old type of windshield de-icer. My son's 2007 Explorer has it and it works great for the entire windshield. It is very expensive.I spoke with a Lincoln service tech, that used to work in the factory, in the test group. He thought that the wiper deicer was a film put on the entire windshield. The coating is metallic so it can heat the windshield from the bottom up. He was not sure if it would hinder the use of an EZPass. So anyone on the forum have a 2017 continental with the wiper deicer that has an EZPass working or not working, please let me know.
I have an EZPass from NJ. Used it in the downtown tunnel in a rental with no problem. I got the EZPass from NJ because it didn't require registration to a specific vehicle.Just got the bill from EZ Pass for a run up to DC from Virginia Beach: Pass charged correctly at Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, Chessy Bay Bridge, cross county expressway in Montgomery and Prince George's County and I495 HOV in Virginia. The spot furthest to the top and right, right next to mirror assembly appears to be the sweet spot.
Did get fined for use crossing the Downtown Tunnel in Norfolk, but only because I forget to register this car to the pass.
