Question about 2014 Kia Forte

Open Question

The windows on the inside fog up and freeze in cold weather

All of the inside windows will not clear up in cold weather. The back window defrost works fairly well and the windshield is mostly clear but the side front and back never get clear. It is on the inside.

SOURCE: Radio / rear window operation

Hi there, I am not familiar with the Kia, however here's the deal. The Ariel for the radio only would need a single connection as its like providing a wire to receive the radio waves through. So one connection for the Radio ariel is good.

The rear window though is basically a circuit of resistive wire in the rear window that gets hot as the electric current flows through it. To have current flow through it it has to have a way for the current to get into the circuit (out of the battery or alternator and into the window) and way to return back to the alternator or battery - so for the rear window there needs to be 2 contacts.

Its possible that they have a connection at the edge of the window at the top or the bottom, but you need a complete circuit for the rear window demister to work. So check all around to see if there are any other connections that are around the window that are not connected where the body shop guys may have trapped the wire under the trim ? Also the only other thing that prevents the rear demister from working may be the fuse - could check that, and if the wires across the window are broken some how buy some one scraping something across the glass and breaking the circuit that way.

If you check the fuse and there are no obvious breaks in the wires on the rear window i would call the Kia Service center and talk to one of the guys there and ask if they can give any advice on where the connections are and if they think you shoudl take it back to the body shop again - iut certainly sounds like they have not connected it up right at the body shop so or they have damaged the window so I would take it back.

Regards

It sounds like your heater core may have sprung a leak causing your moisture problems.

SOURCE: ELECTRIC WINDOWS, WINDOWS ON DRIVER SIDE FRONT AND

Is there a noise coming from the doors that aren't working? If there isn't, it's probably your switch, if there is a constant wrrrring noise, probably the motor. Each door usually has it's own electric motor, that could be the issue. If you know how to use an ohm meter, take off your door panel and check the motor per the specs in your manual. If you can track down a Chilton manual for your car, it will be of tremendous help. Chiltons have wiring diagrams in the back for all of the different systems of your car.

SOURCE: front passenger side window is stuck in the down position

Sounds like the regualte or push arm is broken. If there is no spound then sounds like the regulator. The inside door trim has to be taken off, find the regualator, remove and replace should be ok then.

Fogged up windows


Are you using the fresh air option ?
If you are, you could have excessive moisture inside the cabin. Running the hvac on defrost should kick on the ac compressor and bring in fresh air too.

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.

Try Solution #1 First, Least Expensive, Non-Lethal Condition.

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).

Windows fog up on the inside when defroster is turned on


leaking heater core. The coolant level may be low also. What it is doing is fogging up the window with the steam coming from the hot engine coolant that runs through your dash board when the heater or defrost is on. This should be under some kind of warranty on an '08.

The inside of the car fogs up and on very cold mornings ice forms


This can be caused by a heater core that is leaking inside the car, one way to determine if that's the problem, is if you can smell antifreeze. It is a 'sweet' smell, and is quite noticeable. If u don't notice this, I have to say this is a common problem w/ Hondas. I've had a civic, 2 accords (currently have a 92), and 2 Preludes, they are great cars, but they all suffer from fogged up windows in cold weather. One reason is that they are quite air tight, and the older models don't have the greatest defroster system (weak). Try and keep a window cracked open slightly, see if that helps.
