condensation issue

I get condensation on the outside of my window all the time, and i cant get rid of it no matter how hot or cold i put the fan. The only way i get rid of it is if i turn on the wipers, and i dont really like to do it when its not raining since they streak, and it just comes back again. I figured it would be me just running the fan too cold, but i get it even when my fans not running and sometimes i get it when i start my car and its garaged and i dont run the fan in the morning. i also thought might be my heater core leaking but that would just give me condensation on the inside.
any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated.

I have that same issue :/ I found blasting the heater on it till it goes away seems to work best, however it is only temporary . Sorry I hope some one has found a fix for it.

Ah yes, the classic mustang "bat-symbol". 9 years of engineering and I have the same issue on my 2014 GT as in my 2005 GT. Better off the condensation happens on the outside anyway, easier to clean with wiper blades than getting all up on the glass with microfiber.

. . . Just another thing that makes you wonder "how did FORD not catch this during QC, or fix it in subsequent years". I mean it's a non-issue, but certainly annoying.

Hi Amrit,

Were Ford technicians able to diagnose the issue yet? Please send me your Mustang's year and odometer reading; this will help me assess the next step.

I get condensation on the inside of the windshield when the temperatures drop . But It does away when I put the defrost on. Im sure not going to condemn my Mustangs, for what I feel is such a miniscule problem . Im used to the old days, when carburetor icing, poor defrosters, slow warm up,etc was the norm. When I see what my new Mustangs have to offer in terms of performance and other creature comforts, well I don't sweat it. Just my .02.
For what its worth.
