Windhsield Defroster

It seems that I can only defrost my windhsield if I have the AC on with open vents. If I change it to recycled air, it fogs up or if I use the fan only it fogs up. Am I doing something wrong?

I thought you would say that. My mother has the same exact car and it's the same way. Must be a design flaw. It would drive me nuts.

Hmm...most all vehicles kick on the A/C when in defrost mode. Maybe the recycle cuts the A/C off somehow. And fan only won't work at all, yer just blowing more air on the window which would increase the condensation, esp if you were in the car as well.

Somewhere I remember seeing that its better to pull in the outside air, since, unless it's raining, normally the outside air (being cooler) has lower humidity than the air that has been in the car. Dunno whether I'm remembering correctly or not.

yes gunguy your right on all counts it runs the a/c to suck up the moisture and uses outside air to dry it out....with most new cars you can't even have it on recirculate with defroster on....good call
