Default Windows Fogging Up on my '94 Camry

Hi,

I have a problem with my 1994 Camry. The windows fog up during cold weather
and when it rains. The defroster and the heater does not clear it up. It
got so bad in very cold temperature, that I had to use a scrapper on the
inside of the windshield. Any ideas???

Thanks,

Mike

Just a thought but do you have the vent lever set to "outside air" rather
than "recirculate"?
I had this same problem with my 94 Camry then noticed I had the vent set
wrong according to the manual. When i set it to "outside air" the windows
cleared up.
BTW, this seems to be common at least with the 94's as my mom's Camry
also does this.

This is also the way it works on my 2000 model Camry.
I don't understand it at all. Seems like the AC would dry the air in
the car and would keep the windows from fogging as it does in most
vehicles. I do find it odd, but at the same time, I know to set the
air source to non-ciculating/fresh air setting if I want clear, fog
free windows.

Turn your AC on --- theynew ones automatically cut the AC on when you turn
lever to defrost the windshield.

How new? Do I need to physically push the AC switch on my 99 XLE?

Thanks!

Switching from inside to outside air always does the trick on my '92.

Hi Mike,
Same problem here, only mine is a '98 Camry LE. Turning on the A/C does
the trick but I'm wondering why this happens all the time. I always
leave the air lever in 'outside air' position and still whenever it
rains everything fogs up. I've also had problems with the dome light and
all the front panel lights going out intermittently and found that all
of the light sockets had small amounts of corrosion which in turn caused
sporadic connections. I'm betting that this has something to do with the
excessive amount of moisture that gets trapped inside the car. I even
took it to a body repair shop about two years ago to get it checked but
the mechanic there told me that most Camrys he's seen have the same
problem and there was nothing he could do. He told me this before doing
any work and didn't charge me a cent (even though it was at his shop for
a day) so I tend to believe that it is a Camry problem.

I do live in the Northeast US where it rains and snows a lot, which may
be part of the problem, but I've owned at least ten other cars (not
Toyotas) that did not have any moisture problems at all.

I love my Camry and will definitely buy another one. Hopefully Toyota
has fixed this problem in the newer models.

Not sure the year - 2003 for sure. See if your green A?/ light comes on
when you go to defrost with fan on.. If so that yours is new enough.

Guido, the AC copmpressor is on in a 97 Camry when Defrost is
selected. I am fairly certain it will be on your 99, since my 2000 is
also the same...................Traded the 97 for the 2000.

Thanks for the info, my A/C green light doesn't come on though, does
your A/C light come on?
