    I also have the same problem with moisture buildup/ice on the inside of my windows and on my gauges in my 2007 mazda 3, so far I have taken it to the dealer twice and both times they tell me it's nothing, and that when it happens again to take my car in & leave it overnight so that they may see the problem and find where the moisture is coming from, not sure how this will help since the moisture is not localized, I think they just want me to prove I'm not making it up. So far I have not had the problem again, it's been too warm, so I'm still waiting to see if something happens that will get their attention.

2008 RAV4 defroster doesn't clear windows at temps below freezing

front or rear defrost?
what windows, there are many, front windshield?????
dont use RECIRC mode. use fresh air, only
and make sure the dampers are in fact sending hot air to the windshield. if the dampers are not working it needs service
or a simpled blown fuses in the fuse box.
also, the car can have water engress. are the any damp spots
on the carperts. anywhere.?
are you using the A/C defrost mode, does it work.
do you know how to tell, its easy, check A/C mode.
A/c is also a dehydration system for the whole cab, it even ejects
water to the ground as you drive.

Water leak

Find a brave soul who will taste the water, just a tiny droplet.
If it really is water, it should be coming from your air conditioner.
You might take a flashlight and try to determine exactly where the water is coming from, by parking the car in the same spot each time, and then opening the hood and see what is above the drips.
If it is radiator coolant, it should taste sweet, and should have some color, like whatever your coolant is colored.
That could be pink, yellow, blue or green, but outside of a clear glass dish collector, it would be hard to tell.
Radiators should not have water, it should be coolant, which is a 50%/50% mix of water and anti-freeze.
Moisture on windows is a different matter, usually.
We will hope the heater core is not leaking to cause the moisture on the windows, 'cause that is a terrible big job to fix.
Be blessed.

2008 charger 3.5 weathers been cold and car parked all week. car wont jump to next gear ???

Moisture has gotten into the transmission and the ice crystals have thickened the transmission fluid. Either get it inside to a warm place or run an electric heater beneath the transmission to heat the metal and eventually, the transmission fluid. Once you get it to work, drain the old oil and replace the filter and the oil. Change both more frequently to prevent moisture buildup.

Toyota Camry 2004 Defroster fogs windows.

2 possibilities:
1 - HVAC External Drain Tube stopped up with dirt, bee nest, etc. Hard to get to w/out a car lift. Need to clear and drain HVAC box.
2 - Leaking heater core inside HVAC box. Moisture from defog will smell sweet and be hard to clean off glass. Requires Dash removal and AC service to replace Heater Core. Very time consuming and Expensive A-Freeze fumes are also lethal if inhaled.

Moisture keeps collecting inside my 2008 Subaru Tribeca front headlight. Dealership resealed twice without sucess. They finally replaced the headlight with a new one, and the problem still persists. ...

Try taking off the headlights and remove the bulbs. When you remove the bulbs, there is a gasket. If there is moisture, you will notice that the outside and inside of the gasket is wet. Use a hair dryer and silicone sealant to seal the gasket and the moisture problem shall go away.

Code po305 # 4 cyl misfire. Only does it when cold.changed the #3 with the #4 plug and same thing.Plugs are almost new. Any ideas would be great.

Did you try to change out the plug wire. Also try using a Di-Electric grease to coat the inside of the plug boot, to prevent moisture buildup which would cause misfire. This is a small step some will not do nut moisture can really misfire an engine.

When its cold outside why is my window freezing inside instead of outside of the car?

Too much humidity. The air inside your car doesn't get hot enought evaporate the water from wet clothes, boots ,etc. Try keeping a window cracked to let some of the moisture escape and turn the heater up until things dry out. That should do the trick.

4Runner headlight has moisture inside. Light works fine

yes. it should be a fairly easy job, just be careful when removing the glass, and make sure you get your headlight re-alligned when it is done, as it will fail its mot if not done.

hope that helps.
