SOURCE: my mdx 2002 acura fan blows constantly and kills my battery.

You most likely have a sticking fan control relay.
Remove the relay to confirm fan stops.

SOURCE: I have an Acura MDX 2002 and the Air conditioning

Turn the AC on/off couple of times randomly.Then check.If same problem.Try adjusting the temperature setting to proper cold.But if still the same problem. Then get the ac pressure tested.The ac pressure test will let you know if there is any kind of leak in the ac cooling system.If there is a leak of ac cooling refrigerant then this can be the reason. If the ac refrigerant is checked out low then this can be the one reason,get the refrigerant recharged then check out.If still the same problem then the compressor needs to be checked.Is the compressor turning on or not at all turning.If its not turning on then the compressor relay needs to be checked.If compressor relay checks out ok then its faulty compressor,.Also check out for any kind of vacuum leak.Get all the vacuum line and vacuum hoses checked and confirmed that there is no vacuum leak. Also check your ac cabin filter .If its blocked by dust and clogged it will not let the ac run. The filter isn't too much of a challenge to change actually. Shouldn't even require any tools.
Basically, you grip the bottom of the glove box housing and start pulling it away from the dash panel. The whole assembly is held in by 10 spring clips that will release. Disconnect the two wire harnesses that go to the trunk lid main switch and the glove box light and that's it. The filter holder is now accessable and you pull it out of the slot, replace the filter and reinstall the holder into the housing. Replug the trunk lid main switch and glove box light harnesses and then align the spring clips to their slots in the dash and push the glove box assembly back into place.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

My 2005 Ford Expedition is blowing hot air from the front vents and suddenly the rear vents stopped working at all but I can sometimes hear a noise on the rear part of the truck ,may someone please tell me...

to me this sounds like a blend door problem. this is in the heater box, first you need to pinpoint the noise. there is 2 heater boxes on front and a rear both have blend doors. being you hear a noise, I suspect either door is jambed by forign object or broken, but still could be a problem with the actuator for the door. as for the rear not blowing?,check the position of the front blower switch, one position will disable rear function. honestly this
should be done by an experianced technican, I was 20yrs ford.

I had the AC problem too, and they said there was a hole in the hose. They fixed it and now it comes out of the vents as it suppose too, but when I first accelerate to go up a hill, it stops blowing out of the dash vents. Once I have stopped going up the hill, the air starts blowing out again. Weird.

2006 Envoy SLT air suddenly stopped blowing from vents

the resister block needs changing... oddly enough i'm unsure of what fan you are saying is not working.... if it's the front.. the resister block is located on the duct work under the dash for the air... near the fan... you will see a connector going into the side of the duct work. two screws and the block comes out... should be fairly obvious for the rear one but it will be near the fan.

Front vents will not work

If they are stuck on defrost,then the problem is a little vaccum line that comes through the firewall as all the climate controls are vaccum controlled,so look for a small green or black plastic line unhooked.
