Clean the mold off with a good leather cleaner...when you store your car in the garage leave the windows open and you need some ventilation in your garage....place a fan in your garage and leave it running. Crack a window open or put a vent in the wall or something. If you have air movement you usually will not get mold.

mold is an indication of moisture present in the air.
most likely condensation caused by temps going up and down.
crack car windows a bit and if available get some moisture grabbers.
dessicant bags.

mold?

If you are using a desiccant bag make sure you don't place it on any upholstery. If it is really damp in your car it will start to release the moisture back into what ever it is sitting on. This happened to me while a bag I had was sitting in the basement. You could use a plastic bucket and keep checking it until you know how often or if it needs drying out. All you need to dry it is place in the oven on low heat until it is moisture free.

NB WARNING - Mold can destroy what it gets into. It may also cause health concerns, Go to this site and check it out:
