Question about 1998 Porsche Boxster

1 Answer

Air Conditioner blows very hot air

The air conditioner on my Porsche Boxster was working fine until I pressed the button to throw air to the windshield and then the button to throw air to the legs and feet. After I pressed those buttons it started to throw hot air instantly. The compressor turns on but it keeps on throwing very hot air since you turn on the car. I don't think its damaged.

sounds like a mode door is stuck causing the air flow to go across the heater core only and not the evaporator. try activating the hot to cold functions to may be un stick the doors. if no changes then try a computer scanner, these new cars can have HVAC control codes and be accessed with a scanner, telling you the problem. if no access to that a good European shop is the next best thing. They might be cheaper than a Porsche dealer.

It sounds like your air conditioner condensation line is not attached or leaking, or the condensation pan is cracked. This is a common problem, the fix requires removing the dash and replacing the broken part.

My Air Conditioner started blowing hot air. Code p2181 came up. I have had problems with my fuse box over my battery. Could this be the problem again?


  • Press the "Power" button to turn off your unit and then remove the filter from the filter panel on the side or front of your air conditioner. Refer to your manual if you are unsure where the filter on your unit is located.

    Inspect the filter. If it is dirty, brush off dirt, debris and lint. If it is really dirty, wash it with mild soap and water and allow it to dry completely. Reinsert it into its compartment. If your filter is worn out or damaged, purchase a replacement filter from an appliance or hardware store and replace the old one.Turn on the air conditiner

  • Check for a reset button on your air conditioner and press it to reset your unit. Some of the newer air conditioners have reset buttons to restore the default factory settings. Press the "Power" button on the front panel of your air conditioner to power down your unit if it does not have a reset button. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Leave the air conditioner off for several hours to see if it will reset.

    Plug your air conditioner back into the electrical outlet and turn it on. If your air conditioner is still displaying the E1 error code, turn it off and contact a qualified technician because the room thermistor response to detecting room tempeture is needs replacement I say I'd loose business but rather clients trust me then go elsewhere recommend me for what you'll pay get a new one if it doesn't work

    My air conditioner doesn't work. the fan blows but its just hot air


    Have you checked to make sure your freon is charged? Most of the time, a freon system will leak out. You should recharge the system. Directions are on the freon can.

    Air conditioner blows hot air fully charged with


    compressor or receiver/dryer or condensor may need to be replaced. Further testing will have to be done. Look into your sight glass and see if there is any bubbles in the glass, or if glass is extremely foggy. If so, you may have air in the system. Check to make sure you are getting power to the compressor.

    2005 Toyota Corolla air conditioner is cold but


    The air flow does not 'increase' with the recirc button pressed. The fan motor blows at specific speeds, no matter whether fresh or recirc is selected. The recirc feature is there so that you do NOT admit 'fresh/hot' air from the outside into the AC box. In short, the recirc feature is to re-use, or, recirculate the existing air in the car. When it is properly working, on a hot day, the recirc selection should drop the internal temperature at the center air vent about 6 degrees lower than with the fresh selected.

    When I turn on the air conditioner it is blowing hot air as if the heater were on. Could it be a fuse? It was working fine yesterday.
