IF ITS REAL HOT AND HUMID OUTSIDE BY VERY COLD AIR COMING OUT OF AC VENTS.THE HUMIDITY IN SIDE CAR WILL CAUSE WATER OR MOISTURE ON INSIDE CAR AC VENTS.LIKE YOU PUT A COLD GLASS ICE WATER ON A TABLE IN A HOT ROOM.THE HEAT HUMIDITY WILL CAUSE THE GLASS SWEAT TO BE WET ON THE OUTSIDE.

The drain on the evaporator is stopped up,look for it directly bellow the ac lines ,where they go into the car,under the hood,it will be on the bottom of the blower box,use air pressure to blow into the drain to clear it out.

Air conditioner comes on comes out hot


the belt driven aircondisioning unit is located under the hood. there are usualy metal lines coming off of it and one should have a valve in it ...looks like a tire,air valve. when car is running, turn the AC on. the unit has a two part clutch that the belt will turn. when the AC is off...the pump or compressor will engage and the hole belt driven piece will rotate when the AC button is on. , when it is off....or not getting power to the clutch , the pully will spinn but the inside clutch will not.

iff the unit engages and turns when the AC is turned on, and still blows hot air, then you may have a leak in your refrigerant line. iff it dosnt engage, then check your fuses .if everything is good to go..then it is mostlikly a vacume issue located in the dash behind the AC switch and display that moves the vent from hot to cold....

2006 silverado leaks water out of AC sometimes when it runs, also water vapor comes out the vents, this is when AC in on plus recirculate the air in cabin as well is on. doesn't due it all the time...


Your air conditioner condenses alot of moisture while it is cooling. This falls into the box that the blower fan is mounted inside of. There is a small drain hose that allows this moisture to drain outside the vehicle. Have this drain checked to insure that it is open. You can usually blow low pressure air into the hose to verify that it is clear.. Good Luck!

2001 volvo s40- When defrost is chosen on control, the AC light comes on and the air exits the front vents. Very little air exits the defrost ducts on wnshield


I am not an expert of Volvo's but what you describe is normal operation for most cars. If hot air was directed at a very cold windshield it could crack it. So when you kick it over to defrost, the hot air is mixed with AC air and the amount of air flow is restricted so that it doesn't crack.

Did the operation of your Volvo defrost system seem to change all of a sudden and that is the reason you posted this? If so how did it change?

How did you know when the cooling fans are not working


You may have one conventional belt-driven fan with a thermal clutch and the other electric or, both could be electric on your car.
The cooling fan that operates during non-AC operation (just a running engine) if electric, will be controlled by a thermal switch in the lower radiator tank and may not turn on at all unless the engine is warmed up. The belt-driven fan should be turning at some speed all the time if the engine is running and at much higher speed with a hot engine.
The fan that cools mostly when the AC is operating won't run under normal operation but may turn on in hot weather (or when the engine is under heavier loads) even without the AC operating.
Checking them would require having a warmed-up engine and the AC turned on. Both fans regardless of type should be turning then.

2005 terraza never gete cold enough. in hot


It is hard to diagnose the problem with out knowing readings on the ac system,a low and high pressure readings would need to be known.This is needed to know if it is a internal ac system problem,or a vent door,or temp door problem.Have a mechanic put a set of gauges on the ac system to determine what is going on with the system.

1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water


Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday

check fuse, maybe you just have a blown fuse. Or you might want to see if you need it charged.

A/C malfunctions


you have a problem with the mechanism of your heater, the vent from the heater doesn't close well that's why hot air from the heater still flows to your vents.
