Most likely the evaporator drain tube is plugged. You will need to open the hood, follow the ac lines to the firewall, you will find a small tube in the vicinity below the lines, it may also be underneath the vehicle. Use some sort of probe (coat hangers work well) see if you can get whatever is plugging the drain out.

You have a plugged tube use a coat hanger to fish it threw the air filter side of the ac unit and run it all the way threw till you see the wire, if you can't find the cabin air filter it is located under the dash and you will see a small rubber tube that goes to the outside of the car.

Water leaking inside the passenger area of Honda crv 2003... Please please help....


Are you 100% sure it is water IF yes then I would be looking at the door seal (rubber strip that goes around the door) .If no and it could be coolant then I would suspect your heater core is leaking which can be confirmed by doing a pressure test on your radiator.

Air conditioning is not blowing hot. Tried sealant and two cans of freon.


Well now that you have just randomly added freon to it you are going to need a professional to look at it and get the pressures right again after whatever the real problem is fixed.. The amount of freon in the system is important.. Too much is worse than not enough.

Windows in truck are fogging up


Need more info: I assume you are talking about the side windows, right?
Do they fog up when the truck just sits? Does it make a difference what the outside temp is? Does it small like anti-freeze (sweet smell) in the cab when it happens?

The first and easiest thing to check is drain tube from the air conditioning unit. Air con units are dehumidifiers and the water that they condense from the passenger compartment is supposed to drain out. If the drain gets plugged, then the water sits inside a little reservoir under the dash on the passenger side. From there it goes right back into the cabin raising the humidity and fogging the windows. The drain can be easily cleaned by blowing compressed air up the pipe.

Dropping water


Are you loosing water from the inside of the radiator?...then it is a blown head gasket, or a cracked head/block. Is there steam coming out of the exhaust? Is the water dripping from the exhaust pipe and from the small factory hole in the muffler....then it is normal. Most likely, as every car with air conditioning, the evaporator core collects frost even in the summer and the A/C cycles to heat it, and melt it off. It is meant to drip through a small pipe, under the car, onto the ground. It is perfectly clear and clean water. It is normal functioning of the air conditioning. In the winter when the defrost is selected to clear the windshield, the automatic air conditioning produces cold dry air, which is then heated to clear the moisture. Frost collects on the evaporator core. The system cycles to heat it off from time to time and it will drip clear water in the winter when you didn't even know that the air conditioning was on. After all who needs air conditioning in the winter when you did not select it. The automatic system turned it on to dry the re-heated air to clear the moisture from inside the car.

Air conditioning drain


You can't see it in the engine compartment because it empties into the frame rail on the passenger side. If it's plugged you have to clean it from the inside. Can you see on the inside of the vehicle where it tapers down on the bottom of the case and goes thru the firewall?

2005 cobalt leak @heater core cover under dash


if you have air condition,check in the engine compartment on the fire wall under the air condition for a drain hose it may be blocked and that is causing the water to backup and leak inside the car.

I got 1992 toyota corolla dx leaking water inside the floor


Hi j_lorenzo
That water is condensation from your air conditioning. It should collect in a tray and have a rubber tube that goes throught the firewall so the water can drip our under the car. If the tube becomes clogged with debris that works it's way down from the defroster intake it will back up and drip on the car floor. We use compressed air to blow back through the tube while the car is on the lift - then all the water comes pouring out!
Good luck!

Air conditioning switch goes off and on while recirculating air


If I understand correctly the A/C light goes on and off. If so, try to gently push the switch to the side(Not in) while the A/C is on. If this keeps the system working, you need a new control assy(Complete control head)
