Frost On Inside Of Windshield?

Anyone else having this problem?

It's starting to get colder up here in the PNW. I noticed the inside of my windshield has been very foggy when I get off work.

Well, it's been cold enough to frost up today. Had to sit there until it melted enough to be wiped off.

Re: Frost On Inside Of Windshield?

In January of 1971 I visited friends in Michigan's UP. When I got in my car in the morning there was ice on the inside of my windshield. My friends laughed when I expressed concern. They considered it normal.

I have had that happen if I left the defrost setting on.

Only observed it in really cold temps and high humidity area.

If it were to happen around here, I'd be concerned about somehow water leaking into the interior from somewhere, enough to frost on the luvverly wintry temperatures locally.

I forgot to mention this was in my JK and I believe it was the humidity from me breathing and it was -20 or more and the heater wasn't helping out much.

So this does bring up a question I have thought. Sorry for the side track.

Does the GC have some sort of electric heating elements? I get warm air flowing in the GC faster than any vehicle I have every owned.

Last week I had to park out over night and my windshield was completely frosted over and with in 5 mins of remote starting it was clear.

Re: Frost On Inside Of Windshield?

Normal under cold temperatures, use defrost and do not use recirculated air…try that next time!

Re: Frost On Inside Of Windshield?

I first saw this in Seattle before I discovered the sunroof leak in my vw. Have a poke around the floor boards and the spare tire.

Otherwise you might have left a glass of water or coffee in there for too long, but better safe than sorry.

Re: Frost On Inside Of Windshield?

Just the act of breathing can frost the inside of a windshield fast in really cold weather. I could see that easily happening in a JK considering how much closer you're sitting to the windshield.

Ah yes!
The days/weeks of sub-zero temps in MN with only a small Toyota 4 cylinder engine... I fondly (sic) remember the days of sitting in the vehicle for 20 minutes to get it functional. By the time the engine warmed up enough to thaw the transmission, your windshield was defrosted (inside).

Thank God for fuel injection and synthetic oils ( I was too poor back then to afford fancy synthetic oil).

Re: Frost On Inside Of Windshield?

This is one reason that remote start is a blessing...in addition to the warm seat and wheel. Frost happens.
