Theses my problem the defogger front and back
Kia Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

if air is coming out from the window vents when defrost is selected, and its warm air with the engine running, then the front is not your problem. if you turn the rear defroster switch on and it doesnt light up, then you only have a problem with the rear

you are going to need to have a scan tool read the fault codes that are store in the hvac control module. a generic code reader will not do this so its necessary to take the vehicle to a shop that has a scan tool that has the capability

I was hoping there was a self-diagnostics on the HVAC control panel as there is on many vehicles, but not yours.
