Windshield defrosting and defogging

When the windshield is covered with frost or moisture, the front view is blurred, you should remove the frost and moisture.


Windshield Heating

Do not use the () or () position during cooling operation in extremely humid weather. The difference between the temperature of the outside air and the windshield could cause the outer surface of the windshield to fog up, causing loss of visibility. In this case, set the mode selection to the () position and fan speed control to the lower speed.

  • For maximum defrosting, set the temperature control to the extreme right/hot position and the fan speed control to the highest speed.

  • If warm air to the floor is desired while defrosting or defogging, set the mode to the floor-defrost position.

  • Before driving, clear all snow and ice from the windshield, rear window, outside rear view mirrors, and all side windows.

  • Clear all snow and ice from the hood and air inlet in the cowl grill to improve heater and defroster efficiency and to reduce the probability of fogging up the inside of the windshield.
