Default Defroster fogs up my window...

Hey guys,

Basically I bought this truck and while I checked out the heating and cooling controls I came across the defrost setting... PROBLEM...

When I turn on the defroster it fogs up my whole windshield and there is a strange smell (not a VERY bad smell but enough to notice), obviously there is condensation coming from somewhere in the defrost vent path or something, right?

Could this be condensation built up from the truck sitting, because I bought it from a guy that had it sitting for 6-9 months?

Anyone else have this problem or know of a reason and solution?

All the other aspects of the heating work fine and there is no smell...

Let me know
Thanks in advance

Vic
