It sounds like you sprung a leak in the evaporator of the AC system

2005 Jeep Liberty Windshield keeps foging up what would cause it to do that. AC was blowing cold and stop then fog started coming out of the vents.


fogging inside a car out of vents
with aircon happens sometimes

nothing wrong with the air con system at all .....fog will clear

scientific cause ...cold air hits hot air
the internal temp of the car is higher than the external temp
or other way round
causing fog

Tip

Tips for operating Air conditioning system on Toyota Hilux and someother...


To cool off your Toyota after it has been parked in the hot sun, drive with the windows open for a few minutes. This vents the hot air, allowing the air conditioning to cool the interior more quickly.

Make sure the air intake grilles in front of the windshield are not blocked (by leaves or snow, for example).

On humid, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

Keep the area under the front seats clear to allow air to circulate throughout the vehicle.

On cold days, set the fan speed to high for a minute to help clear the intake ducts of snow or moisture. This can reduce the amount of fogging on the windows.

When driving on dusty roads, close all windows. If dust thrown up b the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the in intake be set to FRESH and the fan speed to any setting except "OFF".

If following another vehicle on a dusty road, or driving in windy and dusty conditions, it is recommended that the air intake be temporarily set to RECIRCULATE, which will close off the outside passage and prevent outside air and dust from entering the vehicle interior.

HEATING

For best results, set controls to;
Fan speed ---- Any setting except "OFF"
Temperature----Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake ---- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow ---- FLOOR
Air conditioning ---- OFF

For quick heating, select recirculated air for a few minutes. To keep the windows from fogging, select fresh after the vehicle has been warmed.

Press the "A/C" button on for dehumidified heating.

Choose floor/windshield air flow to heat the voltage interior while defrosting or defogging the windshield.

AIR CONDITIONING

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

For quick cooling, move the air intake selector to recirculate for a few minutes.

VENTILATION

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

DEFOGGING

The inside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone) to heat; COLD (blue zone) to cool
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- ON

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

On humid days, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

DEFROSTING

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

To heat the vehicle interior while defrosting the windshield, choose floor/windshield air flow.

Why does my kia picanto 2013 windscreen totally mist up and will only clear when i put ac on hwen it clears i turn ac off then within seconds it mists up again


the windscreen fog is from humid air coming in from the outside
air conditioners work by removing the humidity from the air so if you close of the outside vent then the recirculated air inside the cabin eventually has all the moisture removed
that is why the windscreen clears because there is no moist air to condense on the cold windscreen
now you will say that it is too cold and that is why you turn it off
well try this -- leave the ac on and adjust the heater control to produce lukewarm air no fogging up and not cold
it is called climate control

Why do condensation and frost come from air vents and can this be related to windows fogging unrelentingly in winter?


Suggest you check to see if your car has a cabin air filter. If so, changing this usually helps prevent the issue.

Air condition there is cold air coming out and the fan is new but there is no force air just alittle


Could be a blend door problem or a restricted cabin air filter if equipped.
The blend door directs air to the vents.

What makes a/c system blows white smokelike out of vents


What you are seeing is probably fog which is a large amount of water in the evap box. Some times the evaporator freezes up due to a lack of air flow or a restriction in the flow of freon in the system. The floor drain could also be stopped up and not letting the water drain out of the car.
You can check to see if a puddle of water is present when the car is parked and the a/c is on. Also try switching from fresh to recirc and see if it makes any difference on air flow. You may have a restricted cabin air filter too.

THE DEFROST BLOWS OUT HOT AIR, BUT THE FRONT SIDE WINDOWS AND THE TOP OF THE WINDSHIELD FOGS OVER. HARDLY ANY AIR COMMING OUT OF THE VENTS ON THE SIDE OF THE DASH THAT BLOWS ON THE FRONT DRIVERS SIDE AND...


You didn't specify what type of vehicle.
If you have very poor air flow out the vents, later model vehicles have a hepa filter or cabin filter in line form the blower motor to the vents. It can be plugged quite easily and drastically cuts down the air blown into the vehicle. Check to see if they are plugged. Secondly, Check your coolant level in the rad and reservoir. If the windows fog up when cold and air flow is good it could indicate a leaking heater core. Check the passenger side floor for signs of coolant again I don't know the type of vehicle, some heater cores are located at the firewall under the hood.

Air condition not blowing cold air


Is any air coming out at all?

If warm air is being blown out, then your refrigerant level is probably low. The car is fitted with a safety cut off, to stop the air conditioning system working if the refrigerant (R134a) level is low.

This cut off only effects the air conditioning, the blower would still function normally.

99 Grand Am GT windows fog up


Fog on the windows is caused by moisture in the air condensing on the cold glass. You probably knew that. So the solution to your problem is to reduce the humidity in the car or warm the glass above the dewpoint. Running the AC will help because any moisture in the air will condense on the much colder evaporator coils before it gets to the windows, but as soon as you turn the AC off that moisture goes right back into the air. Fresh air from outside will help if the moisture level in the outside air is lower, which it ussually is in the winter. The only sure solution is to warm the glass.
You may want to check a service manual and see if there is an air filter somewhere in the cabin heat plenum. If so you may want to replace it. Defrosters and side vents should provide plenty of warm air to clear all windows and it sounds like your just not getting enough air flow. If you're not really into getting behind the dash and tinkering with the heater plenum, you might consider a small 12 volt heater like the ones available at auto parts stores, or you could just let the cabin warm up well before driving. There are also glass treatments that you can use to prevent fogging, I used one for years on a motorcycle helmet, These are ussually a wax and or soap base so they have to be cleaned off and reapplied periodically, but they do work well.
