To clear the interior of fog you must put the fan on recirc and #3 fan position.with the a/c on HOT.it will clear as soon as any heat from the engine is allowed to the heater matrix to dry out the interior.if you allow fresh air into the car with fogged up glass,they will get worse as the temp is warmer inside the car than out.(they collect condensation).

I have a 2005 Impala. The windows fog up on the inside when it is cold outside or it is raining. They really fog up bad, to the point you can't see.


a fix for this is to run the ac
this although make it cold removes the moisture from the air inside the car and reduces the fogging up
if you have climate control run it or if not run the heater at the same time to take the edge of the cold
The air conditioner works by removing water vapor from the air through a condensation process there by making the air feel cooler
that restricts the moisture available to fog up the windows

Window fogging


If it were a leaking heater core, the inside glass surface would have an oily film along with the fog.
It sounds like your fresh air intake is not working. You have to get fresh air from the outside to be able to get rid of the excess moisture inside the cabin. Or you have excessive moisture inside from a water leak that the system can't overcome.

When I turn my heater and defroster on, a bad smell starts and the windows fog up but the air is hot.


This may be due to a bad heater core or dirty core with a plugged water drain, first see if the a/c works. turn it on and see if the air gets cold and if the ac compressor works.

The way the defrost works to keep windows from fogging up is that when the front defroster is tuned on the ac should also be on, on most cars when you go to defrost it will turn ac on automatic. the system then uses hot and cold air to remove the moisture in the air to avoid window fogging. if your a/c is not working then that may cause window to fog, but if you are also getting a smell then the drain that lets out condensation may be plugged and then water builds up and also mold from always being wet and when heat is on you smell that.


i want you to run the defrost and when windows fog up wipe window with hand and see if it is greasy . if it feels oily then you may have a bad heater core, the core leaks coolant out and steam and causing windows to fog up with a flim of grease.

Windows fog on inside while driving in cold weather, requiring me to run the defroster on high to keep them clear. The button that switches the cabin air intake from "outside air " to "recirculate inside...


Yes. Unless you get fresh air you will fog up your windows. Your breath or rain on your clothes or snow on your boots will all cause the humidity to increase and this moisture will deposit on the non insulated glass. Kind,of like a glass of ice tea on a warm day you will get a condensation on the glass. The temperature difference is the cause. Try to run your A/C with the temp set to hot. This will act as a dehumidifier.
also check your pollen filter make sure it's not clogged.

I had this problem too. this is very annoying, and also a safety hazard. After a lot of investigation, and a few trips to the dealer, the cause was determined to be a non-functioning recirc door. recirc door was stuck on, and humid air from the cars interior (wet shoes, breathing, etc.) was being passed directly onto the windows by the defrost system. Dealer closed the door, and it went away immediately. Recirc servo motor part was ordered, and replaced. good as new. was covered under pre-owned warranty. Hope this helps anyone else.

Any time most cars /trucks are in teh defrost mode wether you have the heat or a/c on the compressor will come on and run thats what helps defrost the windows when its cold out or raining nothing wrong with it.
