Sounds like a leaky heater core, not cheap or an easy fix. see if there is any thing wet on the carpets, if so you found it.

SOURCE: how do i fix heater core on a 2006 chrysler 300

If you're getting hot air, it's not the heater core.

Windows fog up because the humidity level inside the vehicle increases while the temperature of the windows decreases to a point where the dew point of the air is higher than the temperature of the glass. When this happens, moisture from the air condenses onto the glass. When you breath out, you increase the humidity of the air in the car because of the moisture in your breath.

The key for defrost to work isn't necessarily heat, it's more important to dry the air. There are two ways of doing this:

1.) Make sure you have the air recirculation turned off. This feature causes your car to recirculate air from inside the car through the air ducts. In the summer when it's hot and humid outside, this is what you want. However in the winter when the air is dry, you want to bringing fresh dry air from outside to replace the humid air inside the car.

2.) Turn on the A/C compressor. This will cool the air before it passes through the heater core. Cooling air removes moisture. This is why your car drips water from underneath in the summertime when you run the A/C. It is literally removing moisture from the air.

However, if your heater isn't working (blowing cold air even when on the warmest setting), then you may have a different problem.

The mildew smell you refer to could be anti-freeze. When a heater core starts leaking it may allow anti-freeze (which circulates through it for heat) to be blown through the ducts onto the windshield in defrost mode. The repair is to have the heater core replaced. It may wait for the thermostat to open and allow the coolant to circulate before you notice it. Occasionally the carpet on the passenger side may be wet from leakage.

SOURCE: Fog lights on all the time

Sounds like your multifunction switch (i.e. the stalk that has the fog light switch) has burned out. This is a fairly common problem and the multifunction switch needs to be replaced.

The part (as I recall) costs < $100 (about 80, I think) and takes less than half an hour to replace.

Why would the windows on my chrysler 300 c fog up on the inside to the point you cant see out of the side mirriors? It gets worse the farther i drive. Could it be cabin filter or evaporator drain bloc


try turning your vents on to blow hot air in the car. you have to much moisture in the rugs is a good guess. need to dry to car rugs. have you heard of damp rid product. its little pellets you can put in areas of a house that suck moisture out of the air. you can try that while the car is sitting for days. see if it helps. best thing to do is on nice sunny days is open the windows to get some fresh air in the car. when I plow snow my windows fog up I just open the window and crank the heat

I have an issue with my windows fogging up when I use heat to defrost them.


This is normal if your A/C doesn't work. When set on defrost the A/C kicks on and off to keep the fog from appearing. the fog goes away once the heat inside reaches a certain temperature. Unless the drain is clogged and the plenum is holding water. Do you have ice on the inside? clean the drain. It's on the passenger side, near the bottom of the firewall. A rubber tube coming out, that goes to nothing.

Icing up windows


try running the ac as well as the heater. The ac removes the humidity (water vapour) in the air in the car which is causing the fogging up . Hot moist air on glass creates fog ( same as clouds). You will get a comfortable temperature inside without the fog

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 up


Heated air in large quantities is what gets rid of window fog. Make sure you're actually getting hot air out of the dashboard vents, and if not, follow that problem.

I changed the heating core but now my windows are fogging up when i turn on my heat and i also smell antifreeze coming thru the vents what seems to be my problem???


heating core has been plumbed in wrong or most likely has a leak in the system, as you are smelling the antifreeze - seems to me like the antifreeze is not reaching the core, have you mistakenly plumbed the intake/out take the wrong way round?, this would cause the windows to fog up as the heat is being taken away fro the core rather than being taken into the heater core
