I even notice if I turn the defrost off for a few mins it becomes fogged up in no time.

Hey everyone!

I'd like to look into options for assistance. Please send me a PM with your full name, best daytime contact phone number, VIN, mileage, and servicing dealership (with appt. time).

if it's raining out. any time I stop the car fogs up. idling at a stop light it fogs up. I basically have to run the defrost all the time if it's wet out.

anyone have similar issues?
Fog on the inside or outside? Fogging of the glass only occurs when the air humidity is sufficiently high enough to condense on a cooler surface. Likely something is wrong with your vents/blowers or air conditioner itself, or something is blocking the dash vents.

Same here. When it was raining cats and dogs last night, I had to keep my defrost on and couldn't even have the air directed towards me or the windshield/windows would fog up immensely.

Thought it was because of hot breath (LOL!) but now I know otherwise.

Thanks for boostin my self esteem guys

Hi trahker,

Have you seen your dealer about this? Please send me your Focus' odometer reading and I'll see what I can do. :)

Does your AC work / make the car cold?

My first guess would be the drain for the cowl vent or the AC is blocked, not allowing moisture to escape. Maybe you could check to see if there is dripping from the bottom of the car when the ac is on to see if it is draining properly. If not, that may be it. I haven't had any problems with this and we have had a lot of wet days lately.
