Burns098356GX I left a window down overnight a couple weeks ago and had a lot of moisture in the car. I bought a box of baking soda and left it in the car for a couple days. Everything dried up.

I read that too, checked and it seemed dry, probably just the wild weather. I did start shutting my climate off before getting out too and that seemed to work.

I could smell coolant inside with the heater on, but none of it leaked inside the cabin.
3 weeks later and having the doors and dashboard removed from my car... works great now :p

Seems like a ton of condensation, is this normal?

Thanks!

jdetzel Just to be sure, check your floor boards to see if you have wet carpet and open the trunk or hatch and look in the spare tire well.
I remember a couple of posts where water was found inside the vehicle.

dan50 Any chance your climate control is switched to "recirculate"? That and a big temperature drop could do this.

I've also had condensation in my Headlight housing, but that's usually after a wash or a really humid morning.

mikebontoft you will want to make sure it doesnt do this during the real winter. my brothers old Suzuki used to do it and eventually that condensation turned into ice every morning... he had to scrape it off the inside as well as front because it took too long to just let it defrost.

On my light it was just in the bottom from near the turn signal, so I think it'll be safe.
