One of the thing I notice was that my window fogs up and it doesn't go away. I tried to normal, heat/fan, and defroster. What is the normal procedure to get rid of this problem. And if that doesn't work, what could be the problem?
hmm the most extreme case would be somethign wrong with your heatercore. did you actually check to make sure your vents are working on the dash?,
if it happens again , roll down your front windows a bit , see if that fixes it.
I'm trying to remember if you have a "recycled air" button in that car, I think you do. Your car will fog up and stay fogged up if you leave your recycle air button on. Check your manual to see how the button works. If you have it, try turning it off.
I noticed the same fogging issue with mine. While cleaning the interior I switched on the recycled air button and didn't realize it..Later that night my windows would fog up and the normal defogging method would not work. 15 seconds after I tuned off the recycle air button the fog went away.. So I suggest not using that feature if you currently do and see if that helps..
do you smell antifreeze at all inside the cabin? and I mean ANY.
if you do smell antifreeze you are leaking coolant in your cabin somehow. this just happened to my car and it was the heater core.
the heater core is located under the passenger dashboard. takes about 6 hours for an experienced mechanic to replace. the cost for the heater core is like $150, the remaining is labor. total bill is between $700 and $900 dollars.
it sucks having to do this, but there is nothing else you can do.
