Similarily, heating systems can show signs of potential problems. What your auto heating system does is to function to keep your car cabin warm in the winter. The auto A/C system additionally offers a double function of working your defrost in the winter. Heating systems are comprised of a heater core which acts like a little radiator behind the dash, fan, and hoses which draw the heat from the engine to the core. If your car is not heating right or the defroster is not working, this could mean there is a potential problem in your heating system and should be checked.
