#3 - Defogger problem of the 2004 Chevrolet Impala
The vehicle was a 2004 Chevrolet Impala. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 2G1WF52E64_. Hvac system in the 2004 Impala has a problem. The ac compreser runs in the heat only mode at temps as low as 30 degrees. This causes the inside windows to fog up on the inside and if the vech is left parked outside all the windows will fog up. The only way to keep all windows clean is to open one of the windows a little and run defrost with at least half speed. If you do not do this the front and side windows fog up and it is very hard to cleat the side windows. This problem is causing my gas mileage to go down and making it hard to drive when it is cold out. Dealer said it is ok. The manual says the ac sould only run above 40 and only in defrost or demist modes. It was Jan. 1, 2005 when this defogger issue happened.
