Could be a blend door problem. You would need fresh air from the outside to keep the windows from fogging up. If the blend door that controls outside air gets stuck or fails to open, you may not get fresh air. The ac compressor would also need to run every few minutes to dry the air hitting the windshield.

SOURCE: I want to replace the fog lights for my wife's

You can reach below the front bumper, behind each of the fog lights and turn counter-clockwise to remove each bulb, then simply un plug the harness. This done from outside the car not under the hood. Once you removed the 2 bulbs go to your auto parts supplier and puchase the bulbs. Reverse this procedure to install the bulbs. Try not to touch the actuall glass part of the bulb because the acid/oil on your skin will in fact decrease the life of the bulbs. You do not need any tools for replacing the fog light bulbs.. Just patience...

SOURCE: my 2001 oldsmobile silhouette keeps over heating.

Hi!

I have and 98 Intrepid 3800 motor, and had same problem.

I tried a few things, but what finally worked was when I took the car for a complete cooling system flush, they opened the radiator and cleaned every single passage line, flushed motor and heater core,

It cost me about $100 but I havent had a problem since. I recommend you do the same.

There is a screw on the thermostat housing that is used to purge the air out of the cooling system. On your owner's manual are detailed instruccions of this procedure.

If helpful, click below. Good Luck

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

If your car has an air conditioner turn it on as well as the heater . Air conditioned air is very dry and usually defrosts the windscreen quickly. The heat from the heater will overcome the cold air from the air/con. It is good for the air/con to be run during the winter months as well as summer, it stops the seals drying out and leaking refrigerent.

to clear the interior of fog you must put the fan on recirc and #3 fan position.with the a/c on HOT.it will clear as soon as any heat from the engine is allowed to the heater matrix to dry out the interior.if you allow fresh air into the car with fogged up glass,they will get worse as the temp is warmer inside the car than out.(they collect condensation).
