My windows are not defrosting properly.


Do you have heat? Does the fan turn on? are you getting air from the defroster vents close to the windshield? If you have heat make sure the defrost control is working. I'd open the outside air vent and turn the blower on high speed. If there is no heat, the heater control valve is not working. Double check the radiator fluid tank, make sure you have enough fluid (antifreeze) Low fluid levels can reduce the hot water flow to the heater coil inside the car. If there
is no air flow through the defroster vents you may have a problem with the fan control, or the fan motor. Good luck.

Where is the " Outside " air vent located? the " circulation " button is for " inside " air only.


Normally the system pulls outside air in unless you select defrost or push the "circ" button to override the system. The outside air comes in from the area in front of the windshield.

Poor air flow through defroster vents


Got kids? Years ago, mine loaded the defroster ducts with toys, candy, etc.
Otherwise, please create another post and identify the year, make and model vehicle you're talking about before posting your question.

I turn on heater and it sounds plugged when on front defrost? When I turn it to the feet it seems to work fine. Does not defrost front window while set that way. Where can I look. It is a 2009 Saturn...


There is internal vent flaps in the venting system to direct the air flow. The flaps can get stuck in one position. Sometimes the little motors that move the flaps can go bad. I would try to manually move the vent flaps. Pain to get to though as you have to pull some venting apart to access it.

Ice formed on outside of line!


try running the air conditioner in defrost mode. set the temperature to warmest while air conditioner is on, for about two minutes. then slowly move the lever towards cold, all the while having the vent set on outside air. once you move it toward cooler, move the vent switch towards recirculate from outside air.

when you have it on defrost, open the engine hood and push the air conditioner button. watch the lines and see if they begin to build frost. if not, move the slider toward cold a little bit at a time while watching the lines to see if they begin to build frost. if they do start to build frost at any point after running the defroster in A/C mode for a bit, you can always try positioning the temperature control towards the middle or run only the outside instead of recirculating vent.

Why my window is fogging whe i turn the heater ?? i recently bought my toyota carina 3 model 1994 but the window is fogging , what should i do?


Make sure the vent system is set to draw air from outside. If it is set to recirculate the same air that's inside the vehicle without drawing fresh air from outside, the resulting humidity that builds up inside the vehicle can fog the windows even when you run the defrost. You can also try opening the windows a bit to get some more air moving inside.
If it still fogs when the vents are set properly, you may have a leaky heater core. The heater core is a small radiator that is located under the dash that the heater system blows air through to heat the inside of your car and provide heat to defrost the windshield. The fog may be coming from the heater core leaking hot coolant steam that's being circulated through the defrost system. If this is so, you will need to replace the heater core.

AC/Defroster issue


On most vehicles the AC comes on when the defrost is on to keep AC compressor/clutch from seizing up from non use during winter months.

Turn the heat level up for a few minutes. It will dry out the ducts.

Heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents


There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.
