Hi there. Sounds like you need your A/C refrigerant re-charged. In general an A/C system will loose at least 10% of their effectiveness each year through loss of refrigerant. Best thing to do is have an A/C Specialist recharge the system, check for leaks and monitor the operating pressures in the A/C system thus checking the effectiveness of the complete A/C system. Hope this helps, Scottech

How do i get water out of headlight lens 2005 honda pilot

First, if there is water in the lens, then it is leaking. The best way is to get the lens in a dry environment, like an air conditioned house, remove all the bulbs. Use something like a hair dryer to help the moisture evaporate. Next you need to seal any leaks. New aftermarket lenses are available for a reasonable price on line.

A/C is weak

I am not an automotive air conditioning expert, but generically speaking the common cause of weak cooling is loss of the cooling gas, compressor becoming weak, or a defective control valve; in that order. Most of the time in air conditioning systems they make a slow leak and eventually loose the cooling gas (freon).

Automobiles are ******* the air conditioning system because of the roughness they have to endure with bumps, jarring around, and severe conditions.

A common type of problem is the condenser leaking. The condenser becomes very humid all the time due to it being cold. The humidity promotes corrosion in its piping.

The air conditioning service person will put in the gas with an ultraviolet dye, run the system for a while, and then examine the system using an ultra violet lamp. He will be able to see where the leaks are occurring and thus give an estimate for the parts that must be replaced.

If you have an older vehicle, the air conditioning system can end up being rather expensive to service. With some of the common type faults don't be surprised if repairs can go in to a number of thousands of dollars, unless you are luck and the fault is a simple seal or gasket.

My srs airbag warning light doesn't go out on my 05 honda pilot. How do I shut it off

There are 4 most important components involved in the airbag deploy system.
Airbag itself.
Airbag Clock Spring.
Airbag Control Unit (ACU) or Airbag Module.
Airbag Impact Sensors.
If it is any problem in the components, then Airbag Light stays ON.
Sometimes there is a false code, and AUC can be cleared and reset. This can be done by professionals and cost $60 to $70. Might be a loose connector or a defective component, in this case they might charge you more.
The light indicates a problem with your air bags. Do not attempt to do any repairs to the system by yourself. Take it to the Honda dealer or a qualified service center.

How difficult is it to replace the front impact sensor on a honda pilot 2005?

Should be done by a repeatable repair shop due to the fact that if a malfunction should occur they can be held responsible. Inadvertent air bag deployment could occur. Safety systems like that are best left to the experts.

Why is my nissan sentra blowing out hot air sometimes while the ac is on?

Hi there. When was the last time that you had the A/C system re-charged? A/C systems become less effective each year of operation and it might be that the system needs re-charged with freon. Best thing to do is visit an A/C specialist or Dealer and have them check the system, it might only need re-charging which will be your most cost effective solution. At the same time, the A/C specialist will be able to advice you of the effectiveness of the compressor and system in general. Hope this helps, Scottech.

2005 Honda Pilot Rear Air

the blower for the rear air has a screen that like screen in your clothes drier or the screen on your hair drier will get loaded up with lint and junk. it is a bit of a pain to access, you have to remove the right hand kick panel on the driver's side and then you could see the screen. good luck.
