I have a 2012 model with 32000 kms on it. I live in Canada and every time I come back from work the windshield is frozen from the inside (problem #1). I cleaned the windshield from dust, made sure there is no moisture inside the car, tried different A/C settings, nothing helped. So I bought a de-icer spray and apply it every time before going home. I tried to turn on A/C to warm up the car but after 5 minutes the 12v battery dies (presumably the engine does not kick in enough). I had to call CAA to jump start the car. While jump starting the car, the CAA service worker asked me to put the car in Park mode and press gas to charge the 12v battery. The question is: can I avoid discharge of 12v battery while running A/C if I hold the gas pedal pressed while in Park mode? Can I check the status of the 12v battery somehow? If anybody has an idea why problem #1 is happening, I would be grateful as well.
