Trunk Latch problem & Windshield/Window Fog on 2000 911C

Recommended Posts

1. Front Trunk 80% of the time will not open. Latch will not engage inside the car. The battery is new.

2. Start up the car and windshield and windows immediately fog up. It doesn't matter what the outside temperature is that day or if it had been raining or sunny. My car is not damp inside. The is not any strange odor when starting the car. I can't see to drive! Need a towel inside to wipe the water. No matter what settings I put the car on for Heat/AC/vents etc. it doesn't help or work for 15 minutes.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

1. you are prob going to need new latch mechanism or wiring is suspect, I doubt it is the switch.

2. use a 50% vinegar/distilled water solution and extremely clean hot towel designed for glass. (search google for more info). treat inside and out several times, followed by windex. put a towel over the dash before doing this. Afterwards, use A/C to deal with the condensation issue.

Make sure that the foam seal around the heater core access cover, under the battery, is not leaking. That will let in rain/car wash/etc water that will sit in the heater well and fog the windshield.

In a 2000 model, if you can lift the trunk lever, then the battery / wiring is not an issue. The only electrical component to the MY2000 trunk and engine cover levers is a lever lock requiring power to release.

The front lid latch can be easily adjusted to insure proper latching and release. If it is defective, the replacement is not particularly expensive or a big deal labor wise.

As for your fogging issue, be sure your A/C compressor is turned on at start up.
