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

I have heavy condensation daily inside on my windows in the morning. What causes this? How can I fix it?


It is caused by water vapour in humid warmer air inside the vehicle condensing on the very cold windscreen. As long as the interior glass surface is much colder than the inside air it contacts you will get condensation forming on the inside surface.

2. If you equalise the temperature of the air inside the vehicle with the outside temp for 5 minutes before locking up your car you will minimise condensation, as will garaging it. If you drive around with the heater on full on a freezing cold day, stop the car and lock it up exposed, you are going to get condensation, especially if you have used the recirc control to block the outside air from entering the climate control system in the cabin while driving.

3. If you are having this condensation issue set the air controls on the car (before you turn it off and park it) so that outside air can flow in through the cabin venting system. When you drive around constantly with just interior air circulation and no outside air entering you are going to get a build up of humidity.

My 2010 Chrysler 300's front side and rear windows fog up really bad when its cold outside


fogging up occurs when the water vapour ( Humidity) in the cab air hits the cold windows Remove the humidity by running the ac in conjunction with the heater . AC units to make the air feel cold by removing the humidity in the cab air allowing you to perspire more easily and you feel cooler. By running to two together ( climate control in some cars) the fog will quickly disappear.

There is moisture coming out of the AC vents on my daughters 2006 s40, usually during very hot weather and not until the car has been driven for several miles


The drain on the evaporator is stopped up,look for it directly bellow the ac lines ,where they go into the car,under the hood,it will be on the bottom of the blower box,use air pressure to blow into the drain to clear it out.

When its cold outside why is my window freezing inside instead of outside of the car?


Too much humidity. The air inside your car doesn't get hot enought evaporate the water from wet clothes, boots ,etc. Try keeping a window cracked to let some of the moisture escape and turn the heater up until things dry out. That should do the trick.

How do i fix heater core on a 2006 chrysler 300


If you're getting hot air, it's not the heater core.

Windows fog up because the humidity level inside the vehicle increases while the temperature of the windows decreases to a point where the dew point of the air is higher than the temperature of the glass. When this happens, moisture from the air condenses onto the glass. When you breath out, you increase the humidity of the air in the car because of the moisture in your breath.

The key for defrost to work isn't necessarily heat, it's more important to dry the air. There are two ways of doing this:

1.) Make sure you have the air recirculation turned off. This feature causes your car to recirculate air from inside the car through the air ducts. In the summer when it's hot and humid outside, this is what you want. However in the winter when the air is dry, you want to bringing fresh dry air from outside to replace the humid air inside the car.

2.) Turn on the A/C compressor. This will cool the air before it passes through the heater core. Cooling air removes moisture. This is why your car drips water from underneath in the summertime when you run the A/C. It is literally removing moisture from the air.

However, if your heater isn't working (blowing cold air even when on the warmest setting), then you may have a different problem.
