When the windshield and front windows become frosted, you lose a lot of your visibility, and become a less safe driver. When this happens, you should defrost the windshield and front windows until full visibility returns. To defrost the windshield and front windows, press the front defrost button on the climate controls. This will automatically turn on the air conditioning and the fresh air. When the window and windshield frost has disappeared, you can turn off the defroster.
