That hose is the drain hose for the a/c. When condensation forms from running the a/c it drains out through the black hose you are refering too.If it doesn't drain out it will eventually overflow inside the car and get your carpet wet.

Could be a bad sensor. I've seen this caused by a loose connection and may not be overheating in fact. Certainly should be checked out.

SOURCE: where is the water drain plug for a 2006 hyundai sonata?

Does this vehicle have a Sun/Moon Roof? The 'water pan' as you call it, is not equipped with a 'plug.' It's part of the Sun/Moon roof assy. the problem is most likely the drain tube (perhaps misrouted) from the roof to the outside of the vehicle (drain alley). The drain tubs are located behind the head-liner at 4 corners of the assy. Otherwise, the leak you describe is possibly being caused by a windshield leak.

Water pouring under passenger side dash. I found the plug end in the engine area. Where is the plug located inside the dash inside the car?


The water you are getting is from the air conditioner - need to unplug the drain hose that appears under the car.

When you have a clog the water collects in the drip tran and eventually over flows into car.

We have a 2005 civic and water is leaking onto the passenger side floor when making left turn and at other times. We hear water sloshing around in the dash. We are looking for the hose that drains water...


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

Cant find dran for a.c


look along the firewall on the passenger side of the car maybe towards the middle a little bit,, you have to do this from under the car , and the drain hose is extremely hard to see under there, if you do locate it,, don't try and shoot air into the hose to remove a blockage, it will just compact the clog and make it nearly impossible to un block,, instead, you can use a wire coat hanger , ( tape the end with electrical tape so you don't puncture the hose, and move it up and down inside the tube,, there will be enough water in there to push the blockage out,, so be ready , its going to be wet fast!! work a little at a time going in farther each time,, you'll know when it clears

Water dripping right front underneath


Is what the liquid plain water or coolant (water mixed with antifreeze). touch and smell the liquid, no smell = water, antifreeze smell and oily feel = coolant.
If plain water, could be Air Condition condensation dripping from condensation drain which is normal. (this drain is usually located near the center of the vehicle).
If coolant, could be leak(s) from: radiator, radiator hose, heater hose, water pump, engine freeze plug. A coolant system pressure test should show what is leaking.

My 2004 Dodge Stratus SXT has water under the front passenger seat and pools up in the rear passanger floor. I thought it was rain filling up in my rear passanger door because that has happened before, but...


You most likely have a plugged a/c evaporator drain tube. This tube drains away the water that condenses on the evaporator core [the one under the dash next to the heater core] whenever the a/c is running. If the tube is plugged then the water will fill up the bottom of the plastic heater/air conditioner housing until it overflows and leaks onto the floor. This drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down very low at the bottom curve of the firewall and is usually a very short rubber hose about 2" long. It can be hard to spot as there is often a lot of stuff in the way that makes it hard to see. A quick check is to park the car on a level spot and operate the a/c for sevreral minutes. You should soon see water dripping onto the ground from under the car on the passenger side of the vehicle. If you see it dripping then the hose is ok and you have a different issue, if not then you can pretty much bet that the hose is plugged. I usually use a puff of air to blow out whatever has plugged the hose [bugs, debris, etc] which fixes it until the next time it plugs.

Water dripping into cab on a 2004 nissan titan when ac is ran


Get under car and look for evaporator drain hose. (wear eye and face protection) . Use a long screwdriver and clean it out . Be careful cold water and debris will fall on you. That should solve the problem.

07 Honda Civic air conditioner has a musty smell. Replaced filter, still smells. Ran heater, and still smells. What do I do?


You need to make sure that the evaporator housing drain is clear. There will be a small tube or opening that usually drains out under the engine compartment near the passenger side. Run the A/C with the car raised safely, and look underneath, you should see it dripping, if not, you'll have to find where it is supposed to be dripping and clean it out with something like a pipe cleaner. Even if you see it dripping, clean it out. Then you have to buy a can of aerosol A/C disinfectant, this should be available at any good auto parts store. Turn the A/C on high and spray the disinfectant into the intake vent of the system. The location of the intake may depend how you have the A/C set. "Fresh" pulls from the outside, usually the valence right in front of the window, "recirculation" pulls from inside the car under the center of the dash. I would do both.

A/C water leak, passenger side Where is the drip pan located?


I have a similar problem with a 2003 cadillac cts. The water drips from the bottom area of the glove compartment. If you would stick your hand under and feel around, there is a removable panel ( two small bolts and one star screw) there , you will fell the sponge on the other side of the panel is wet. I removed this panel and ran the air conditioner and place a large mirror on the floor and shine a flash light up but did not see any water dripping.
The Driver side has a similar panel, I removed that also but saw nothing, not even the canister. But the out side pipes from the AC show the canister leads in the hood under ther driver side.
Any way I looked under the car and found the drain hose. It is located under the driver seat area. I tried fishing a coat hanger through it and it went a long way up. If you look on the side panel where the parking brake is located you will see this hose going to the top of the hood. You will need to depress the parking brake for a better view. I tried the Ac bot no condensation water came throug.
I late found a similiar hose on the passenger side. I tried to push the wire in but did not get too far.
One of these hoses drain the Sun ( moon) roof.
I then took a cap from a silicone tune ( u know the screw on tip that you cut at 45 degrees) That I inserted into the tube under car, then I insert a small funnel into the silicone cap , next with my garden ready and flowing , I force water up through the AC drain hose. Dont do too long, 5 to 7 secs is good. You will see the water come through the other drain hose. It is best to have some onlookers. Note some water might flow up to the moon roof drain and into the car so place some towel on the seat.
That works for me.
Thanks all
and good luck
