Question about 1998 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

The a/c button on my 1998 Toyota Camry blinks and begins blowing warm air in rainy weather. Then my windshield fogs up. I have to turn defrost off for a bit and then it works again for a few minutes. The dealer cannot duplicate and seems clueless as to the cause. What can I tell them??

SOURCE: Toyota Camry 2004 Defroster fogs windows.

During weather with lots of moisture try reducing the temperature inside the car lower than outside temp.
(example - if outside temp is 25 then set car temp around 21-22)
this MAY help as I dont know the weather conditions at your place... ;-)

If your windshield is also fogging up you may have a leaking heater core. Feel and smell the wet area if it feels slippery and has a sweet smell its the heater core leaking anti-freeze.

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.

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.

WINDSHIELD FOGGING UP INSIDE WHEN ITS SUMMER TIME. I NOTICE THIS PROBLEM WHEN THE WEATHER IS HOT(SUMMER TIME). MY WINDSHIELD WILL BE COVERED WITH LIKE A SMALL FILM AND IT GLARES WHILE DRIVING ON A SUNNY...


HI,
I think you are experiencing normal condensation,
try putting the heat and AC control to the position that blows a small amount of conditioned air up through the defrosters. This dries the windshield.
Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!

Why does my airconditioning come on when I turn on the defroster?


INFO: Sight unseen.

The A/C will run the compressor in defrost mode to remove the high humidity from the vehicle cabin area. That is why you pushed defrost button to begin with.

That is also why you see the way you water puddling up under the vehicle with the AC on, this was the water getting pulled out of the air in the cabin.

Hope this tip helps.
