The reason the temp drops when you switch from "heat" to "Defrost" is because the Air Conditioning Compressor is engaged to help remove moisture from the vehicle interior, thus defrosting the windshield. This is normal operation. Make sure you have the engine Coolant at the correct level and that the engine is at correct operating temperature (195 degrees). if not, replace the thermostat
