RE: [DML] Window fogging up in rain...solutions?



In my experience, most modern cars are designed to run the A/C in the
Defrost/Defog modes.  This does two things.  It dehumidifies the air before
it is heated and sent to the windshield, and it helps to ensure that the A/C
is run occasionally throughout the year (keeps the seals from drying out,
etc). Without the A/C on, the warmed moist air actually fogs up the window
more - at least until the glass gets warm enough to reduce the fogging.

According the vendors I contacted, some DeLorean Mode Switches are designed
to do this, and some are not. It may have been the later models ('83s ???)
that ran the A/C in the Defrost/Defog mode. I tried for a couple of months
to get one of these elusive switches from the vendors, and finally gave up.

Now I just run in the Bi-Level mode - which isn't nearly as good at
defrosting/defogging.

If anyone can figure out how to modify a mode switch (or the connections /
wiring) to get the A/C to run automatically when the Mode Switch is in the
Defrost position, please let us know. 

Thanks
