Air Conditioner Drain Clogging Up

Hi, on 09/01 you mentioned to someone that their air conditioner drain might be clogging up & dripping on their ECU, thus frying it up. This has indeed happened to me.

Do you know how to get the drain fixed up again?

I don't want to put another ECU in there to have it fried by the same problem!

You will need to pull the evaporator box out of the car and remove what ever is in there at the drain tube clogging it up. It could be bunch of pine needles or it could be mouse nest stuff in there causing the clogg. You will not know until you take it out. Or instaed of taking it apart, blow compressed air into the drain here and there to keep it open. But that's no garantee way of doing this. Take it apart would be the right way. You could install some kind of a screen on the car air intake which is below the wiper cowling, to prevent mouse from getting into the air duct system and I would also check inside the blower motor housing for any debriss inside of there. So good amount of work if you want to get this done right. Good luck.

01 dodge 2500 v8. Air conditioner started out strong, blowing cold air..temporarily would start blowing warm and then back to ice cold...Noticed when stopping and turning corners a hissing noise coming...

Hi. Have your car aircon evaporator cleaned. Check also the drain hose. All water should go out of the car through the drain hose. There might be something clogging up the hose that is why water will run out the floor and that causes also the aircon to work intermittently.

Have a good one!

Air conditioner condensation dripping into the floor.

Check the drain hose, chances are it came loose from the fitting on the AC unit. Make sure the hose goes through the floor board.

Air conditioner is working in my 2007 edge but water dripping from dashboard and when I turn you can hear water moving around from behind the dash.

Check the drain hoses. If you are getting water inside the cabin, namely on the passenger side, then you have a clogged or crimped drain hose.

Feel around the passenger side front foot well for wet carpet. Inspect all the hoses and drain plugs to make sure you remove the clog.

Where do I find the air conditioner drain tube

The air conditioner condensation drain is under the hood not inside the car. The fluid is probably a leaking heater coil. It is located on the passenger side firewall.

1990 toyota camry air conditioner leak on gas pedal

If water is dripping on your pedal the condenser drain is probably clogged and is not draining outside. Check along the firewall for the drain. It will be a rubber tube with a closed end. Pinch the end and there is probably dirt etc. clogging the end. You can cut the tip off and you'll never have this problem again. You can also run the A/C and see if you see a puddle on the ground. You probably will not see one.
