Thumbs down Question

ok this is not my picture i took it off this site.

i think my car heating has problems:

when these heating options are chosen the air circulation works


when the remaining heating options are chosen the air circulation flashes on and off and then shuts off



its a pain because my windows keep foging up


is this with all cobalts?

you can't use recirc with the defrosters on for whatever reason.

Why would you want to? Isn't air recirc something you generally use for cooling? That's all I've ever tried to use it for.

the recirculate wont work with defrost because it takes the air in from the defrost vent. yes i do get a foggy windshield with humid weather only way to solve it is to put it on defrost on the cool side. or get some invisaglass cleaner

you just gotta let the defrost run till the windshield is defrosted, then turn it to your recirc settings that work and let it go from there... not a whole lot you can do, especially in the mornings when you are running thru different terrain elevations and the windows just fog up for no apparent reason after they been defrosted.

yup it is normal. the recirc. is designed for being used with the A/C to keep it extra cool inside. instead of drawing in cold warm humid air it just re uses the nice cool air in the car already.
