Is it fogging up when you use the heat or a/c? Is it fogging up after sitting outside on a particularly dewey night?

An easy fix and one to try first is turning the temperature gauge over toward heat, and setting the directional controls to defrost. Up the power on the blower for a moment. The warmer air will usually clear up a foggy windshield in seconds on a chilly or even not-so-chilly morning. The condensation on the glass needs a change of temp in order to evaporate. Sometimes you can get the same effect by using outside air to circulate through your car's blower system. Most have a way of circulating either inside-car air, or outside-car air.

If the glass fogs when you're driving down the road and have the heat on, or the a/c - do you smell something sweet or see white smoke coming out of your air vents? If so, you could have a faulty heater core. I wouldn't imagine this is the problem on such a new vehicle, but it could still malfunction.

Of course, if you're trying to wipe this fog clean and it won't go away, maybe you've got someone smoking in the car and leaving a film on the glass. It would take a lot of smoking to make the windshield look foggy though.

go to autoparts store and use their scanner to scan the computer and get the code. you may have to wait until you can catch it back on again. You can try resetting the computer by disconnecting battery for 30 minutes and see if that works first

SOURCE: hi, car windscreen keeps misting up and wont clear

As above check for leaks by feeling carpet/upholstery. If none found then use heater blower on fresh or direct air rather than recirculate and vent the car by leaving windows open a bit on dry days to allow any excess moisture to escape car. Cars become very damp in winter from wet shoes etc and need good ventilation. Another point is to keep interior glass clean as moisture will "cling" to dirt on windows!

Only way it would work is to do the 01 conversion by switching the whole doghouse (fenders, hood, bumper, lights, etc.) It can be done though.
