Hello. That vent is there to release air pressure from inside the cab when you close the doors with the windows rolled up. If you open the passenger door and then close it with your hand by the vent you will feel the air coming out. The truck is so airtight the vent makes it easier to close your doors.

Why does my 2004 Saturn Ion AC leak water into passenger side floor?


The condensation drain line has either gotten plugged or has fallen off.

The component of an A/C system that makes the air cold is called the evaporator, logically it needs to be in the air-conditioned space. In cars it's nearly always in the dashboard on the passenger side.

Warm air holds more moisture than cold air, so as air is circulated through the evaporator to cool it, the moisture in the air condenses back to liquid, like a mini rain shower in a box. That water, usually called condensate, has to go somewhere so there is a hole in the bottom of the evaporator and a tube to carry it out of the cab, through the firewall, into the engine compartment and onto the ground.

If the tube becomes plugged, condensate will accumulate until it overflows an air vent. If it comes off or cracks, the problem is obvious. It's pretty common for a condensate drain in a car to plug, junk falls into the intake vent that won't fit down the drain.

Clearing it would be simple if getting to it wasn't so involved, check your service manual for details.

My 2006 Ram 2500 Diesel cab heater blows cold are out the driver's side vents and hot air out the passenger side. I can't get the cab warm in the winter unless I place the heater in recircula


CHECK all the vent hoses, are they connected, no ob strucctions, when the last time you replaced the cabin air filter ? do you have one? look @ your owners manual, also, you may need to have several heater controls, or other control on as well, see owners manual, anything fall into the defroster vents ? replace thermostat @ engine. see how this works for you, good luck

What is the battery vent hose on the 2000 buick LeSabre for and can the battery be changed without putting the vent hose back on? I put a new battery in and accidentally broke the one side of the hose...


Since the battery is located inside the passenger compartment (under the rear seat), the vent hose is needed to vent the sulfuric acid fumes to the outside of the car - away from the passengers.

The drivers side heater control does not work. It blows cold air no matter what position the control is in. What is the problem? The passenger side works fine.

Check movement of vent doors on that side. Sounds like they aren't moving over as they should. (Or hose fell off on passenger side.)

Battery removal 2000 cadillac deville


Its on passenger side under rear seat cushion. Get in back seat FACING rear seatback, grab under lip of bottom seat cushion, and pull straight up. Disconnect seat heater connector (if so equipped) on passenger side and remove seat bottom. Tada! There ya go! Oh... btw. Its a $150 battery due to the venting system designed into it to vent fumes through a tube to the outside world. Thanks Cadillac!!! :(

Heat overrides the a/c


I'm sure you have already checked this...but just make sure the button is pushed for Recirculate and not Vent when you run your A/C. You don't want the outside air coming into the cab...the A/C will run much cooler when it's taking in the air from inside your cab rather than trying to cool the hot air coming thru the vent from the outside.
