Fog goes away when i turn on heat. windows fog up from top to bottom. that means it is not a heater core


  • water in...heater core, sunroof, windshield or drain logged, wet feet, snow or ice on feet
  • long trips with heat on and warm air dries carpet, etc. and vent out with window. run air conditioner, it will condense water vapor and drain it away.
  • too many short trips never get the car interior dried out.

Window fogging up


try cracking a window, or set the heater to pull in outside air, check your heater core for leaks. Heater core being my first thought, as the leaking coolent/steam will dampen the whole interior of the truck.

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.

If it smells of antifreeze, or if the interior windows are fogging over when you turn on the heater, then the heater core is leaking coolant into the interior, and will need to be replaced.

My windows started to steam up do the moisture outsides and the rain,so I turned on the window defrost button and blast cold air,bu the windows kept fogging up further, I used the windshield wipers to...


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 2006 Passat and everytime I drive it the windows fog up, any solution. I went to my local vw dealer and they have not heard of that happening before. But there solution was put rain x on the...


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.

No cabin heat.. windows fogged.. engine runs cold!!

Heater works but defrost fills inside with fog.


your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the fog smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.
