Hey guys and gals.
Got a bit of a problem with my car. Earlier this week, I got in and noticed there was heavy condensation on the inside of the windshield of my 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible. The windows had been rolled up and the top up of course. I see this kind of condensation happen on the outside a lot in the mornings. You know, dew settling and all that. If I wait around until later in the day, it evaporates on its own.
Anyway, this time it was on the INSIDE. I wiped it clean easily enough and was on my way.
Today I noticed that my heater wasn't working. The temperature gauge goes up to about 1/3 of the way, so I know the car is warming up. I'm not sure if it normally goes up that high; I don't usually pay much attention to the temperature gauge.
Here's my main question: is this symptomatic of a bigger problem that could harm the operation of the car? Or is it just a problem with the heater? I'm willing to live without the heater if it means no more time in the repair shop. I just recently got a transmission overhaul for a whopping $4500, and some work done to the brakes, shocks, and suspension for another $1700. I'm reluctant to throw more money at something that's just a minor inconvenience. I live in the mid-Atlantic, so while it gets cold in Winter, it's not the bitter, freezing colds of Canada and the Northern U.S.
