Curing Foggy Car Windows

Elias Tuomi

One of the most common and most annoying driving problems is foggy windows.  Even in good weather, your windows can fog up and make safe driving impossible until they clear. Sometimes, getting them to clear is a long and arduous process, involving adjusting the defrosters and the temperature over and over again. Fortunately, you can cure this problem by following the suggestions of experts. 

Cold Weather

When you turn on your defroster, fog frequently forms inside your windows. This effect happens quickly and, usually, all of your windows are involved. You simply cannot drive safely until you clear the windows. If you are in a hurry, the best way to accomplish this feat is to crack your windows or turn the air to cold on your defroster. You can also turn on the rear defroster. This action should clear the windows, but you will freeze in the short term. However, if you need things to clear up fast, making things colder in your car will help.

Another method that has gained popular approval involves a multiple-step process. You should turn your heat up as far as possible while turning on the air conditioner. You will also need to switch to outside air circulation instead of inside circulation. You want as much dry outdoor air as possible coming inside. You should also crack your side windows just a bit. Some drivers swear by this method.

Hot Weather

During hot weather, the condensation forms on the outside of the windows. Experts suggest that you turn on your windshield wipers, which should immediately clear away some of the fog. You next need to turn down your AC because you want the inside temperature of the vehicle to be closer to the outside temperature. You also need to stop recirculating air once again so the temperature will rise more quickly inside. Sometimes, a humidity change outside can suddenly cause your windows to fog over. For instance, a summer rainstorm often causes this problem. If, possible, pull over to the shoulder until you can properly defog your windows.


If you have tried the procedures but your windows are still fogging over, have your car checked for leaks. You may have water leaking through a seam or a crack in your windshield. If you've had your windshield replaced, it may not have been sealed correctly. Until you stop the moisture from coming inside, your windows will continue to fog. 

If you continually have fogging problems, experiment with controlling condensation while your car is running but parked. You need to know the right settings for your particular vehicle so that you can quickly clear fog as you drive down the road. You may want to mark the right defogging heat and cooling settings with permanent ink. If you are suddenly overcome by condensation, take yourself off of the road if at all possible.
