Humidity on the inside of the cabin

Post by icemangrmed » Mon Jan 01, 2018 6:21 pm

I left the car parked for a week under heavy rain and about 0-3 grades celsius. The inside of the cabin was dry as far as I could tell.

Today when I picked up the car I noticed quite a lot of moisture on the inside of the windscreen (mostly on the drivers side), but most amazingly on the inside of the infotainment unit behind the plastic touch sensitive screen.
After one hour of driving most of it disappeared. I wonder if this is normal although I must admit unpleasant. The car is 2 weeks old.

I have that problem already 4 months.
Toyota replaced the multimedia screen but that not solved the problem.

Try to find out if both models have it and ( inside of the infotainment unit behind the plastic touch sensitive screen) if so is it with all the systems or only the one without the navigation.
Some people don,t put in there signature wich model they have and then I dont asked it.

Still... How would software define moisture build up?

Andries mentioned that he had the problem
on the inside of the infotainment unit behind the plastic touch sensitive screen for 4 months
Toyota replaced the multimedia screen but that not solved the problem.
To my knowledge Andries has no.1
I tried to figure out if
icemangrmed has system 1 too.

Till now I have not read that it happened with system 2.
System 1 is more found in 1.2T models.

I think it has to do with the use of the C-HR.

Like "icemangrmed" I do not use the C-HR often, usually only one or two days every two weeks.
When I drive more often as with vacation, the problem is not there.
When I ride it is usually a trip of at least one hour, the C-HR is therefore always well on temperature, including the interior.
I also have two moisture absorbers in the C-HR. They hardly absorb moisture, so it is not really humid in the interior.
So that does not seem to be the problem at all.


BTW, I think there are more who have it, only they do not notice. Most C-HRs have navigation. Most people always drive with the navigation screen. The navigation screen has much lighter colors than the audio screen, then you will not see if there is moisture in it.
