Foggy Windows

My windows fog up when temperature turns cold. I turn the defrost on plus the ac. It will clear up front window and the front sides partially but not the back side windows. Sometimes the back windows frost up. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you may have a leak somewhere that is causing moisture build up and condenses on the windows when it is cold. May need to track down a leak.

Clean the windows extremely well. It will cut down on the fog.

Lift the floor mats out of the car, place a sheet of paper on the floor and press your hand down on it. See the outline of your hand in water from the carpet? If you do, there's your water. You need to stop by a car wash and use the big wet/dry vac to suck the excess water out of your carpets and padding, then remember to knock your shoes off better in the winter and get some better floor mats. I find putting the heat on the floor during longer drives also helps keep the carpeting dry as well.

Move the switch from recirculated air to fresh air.. That will clear up the fogged windows..
