Condensation , occurs when the inside temperature is warmer than the outside temperature and when it cools it creates a frost inside also if a window is cracked air gets inside and settles on the windows ....i had the same issue and just before during the winter months turned the defroster off and open the windows to allow the inside temperature to cool everything and it greatly reduced the issue for me ...i hope this helps you

This happened to me once on one of my cars. I took it to a business that replaces windshields and they glued it back on for free. I expected to pay something to have this done but did not have to.

Inside of car windshield ices over

Has the AC been disconnected? When the defroster is in operation the AC should run. It acts as a dehumidifier. (one possibility) sounds silly/ but true.

I have 2004 pacifica. Heater not work, only cold air comes out. Inside windshield were frosted and I found water on bottom of inside of air filter on passenger side seat. Please, tell me how to fix it.

Heater core may be shot, not letting the coolant flow through correctly causing a leak, how's the engine temp? If it stays too high could be a water pump issue

What would make my windshield frost up from the inside--I park in the garage at night and during the day while I'm at work the windshield frosts up from the inside so I have to scrape it

Moisture inside the vehicle. If you have a water leak that is allowing water to get into the car it will cause this problem. Also if the A/C water drain is plugged and there is water standing in the blower fan area you will have the same problem.
Pull your carpet back on the driver and passenger side at the fire wall and check for moisture, if the carpet backing is dry on both sides you will want to check the drain under the hood.
Good luck.

Scraping noise in rear of 2000 Toyota Rav4 AWD

just wanted to stop to offer some tips. I just put in new brakes on last night. I too had the same problem. The brakes were fine, but I replaced them anyway. The drum seem fine, and my emergency cable was a bit loose too. What you can try is hiting the ebrake while going in reverse or in drive. It may help. If not, adjust the ebrake cable will be needed, it not too hard to do. It should be by the rear tires towards the center.
