Question about 2005 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Uneven cold air from front dashboard vents

2005 Honda Accord EX 4 door 28000 miles. Last summer I had the A/C filled with coolant and it worked fine (it was completely empty of coolant). During the winter I made it a habit to keep the A/C on when I had the heater on. When I put on the A/C now the two vents on the dash (driver side - one near the door and the center vent) blow 20 degrees warmer than the two vents on the passenger side. The passenger side vents are about 40 degrees and the two on the driver side are 60 degrees. No matter where I have the A/C controls - max A/C, outside air, upper and/or lower vents the same thing happens. What amazes me is the two center vents which are next to each other have such a large difference (20 degrees) between them. Any help would be appreciated

    After the A/C was refilled last year the dealer on two occasions used a refrigerant detector and was unable to find a leak. I watched them fill it and check for leaks. I guess now we'll have to use a dye and see if we get luckier. Many thanks for the advice.

Well this is simple. You never should run out of refrigerant EVER. If you do, it is a leak. Not enough refrigerant causes uneven vent temperatures. You need to find and repair the leak. This can be done with a refrigerant detector or by using AC dye. I would not recommend doing this yourself, take it to a dealer. Good luck

No heat just cold air


Is the gauge showing the engine is warming up to normal temp ?
Are the heater hoses getting hot ?
If the heater core is getting hot, it could be a blend door problem. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the ac evaporator among other things.

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra regular cab. 4.3 v6 The heater has only been blowing cold air. Checked coolant and replaced the thermostat. No change. AC worked fine this summer. Heat worked fine last...


sounds like you have a bad temperature door actuator. This is a motor that connects to the door and uses inputs from the sensor in itself and the heater control module to open the door from hot to cold. I does take some knowledge on recalibrating this actuator and installing it. if it isn't install correctly it could damage the new part, so just take care

Adding coolant to1998 honda accord purging air pockets


4 cyl Accords have a low pressure, self purging cooling system, so no purging is needed. Add coolant (cold engine) to the normal level. Then, with the coolant tank cap closed, open the radiator cap and fill the radiator completely, close the radiator cap and run the engine for a couple of minutes. Replenish the coolant to the proper level, since it will go down after the air bubbles have been extracted at the coolant tank.

I charged my ac last summer, worked great. This summer the 2 vents on the passenger side work great, very cold. The 2 vents on the drivers side blow air but not cold, just like the ac is not on?


One of your Actuators inside the dash that control the A/C Heat doors/ Baffles that open or close, to either give you hot or cold air has failed. Find and replace the failed Actuator and it should work fine.
