What situation would you need cold dry air to clear the windows?


AFAIK, the a/c is designed to run with cold air in the summer (to cool the interior), and hot air in the winter to clear the windows and heat the interior
Cool or rainy weather with nasty high humidity, especially so with a passenger being alive and breathing in the car. Cold and humid doesn't happen too much in Canada I guess, lol.

Hey, Rockafella, what'd you figure out about your stereo going out? I pulled the bezel off to replace the broken cable assembly for my vent selector, and have had the same thing happen twice - for no rhyme or reason, just no radio, no clock, no nothing. Then it just works one of the next couple of times I start it. There must be some connector getting pulled loose by any one of the gazillion cables behind the hvac and stereo area.

The only thing I can think of that's been consistant, was the fuse that I swapped out. Actually, when I pulled the fuse for the deck (a 20 amp fuse) I lost it. The only thing I had available was the 15 amp fuse I pulled from the DRL's. I put that in it's place and strangely enough, the radio sparked up and hasn't quit running since!

This is very strange since the radio fuse i pulled out, looked perfectly fine. maybe a hairline crack I didn't see?

Sorry, but 05-07?

Sorry to re-start this up after it's been dormant for a bit, but does this trick work on the 05-07 models? I know that the wiring behind the climate controls looks a tad different than the wiring in the picture shown.

If your windshield fogs or frost on the inside the AC coming on removes this moisture and clears your windows faster. Having old cars with bad seals, convertibles, or even just previous days rain or snow on the floor mats from your feet this dry air clears out the moisture.

I hate the engine bogging during defrost, and my AC is long dead. DId this today.
I just needed to remove the radio, and the connector is visible through a slot below. Push the connector latch down, then push the connector back to detach. Did not need the 7mm socket that I bought.
