Dead field mouse or cat? Usually caused by build of smoking and other odors that stick to the condensation created by the a/c and eventually becomes kind of a permanent smell in the vents.

It it is a musty mildew type of smell you can purchase a odor eliminator/sanitizer that is sprayed into the vents.If you suspect a mouse or something of that nature you may want to remove the blower motor on the passenger side under the dash just to make sure and spray the vents in that area.

My heat and defrost isn't working on my chrysler 300m what do I need to do to fix it


There is a valve that is vacuum opperated that allows hot coolant to flow into the heater core inside the car. The valve is mounted inline w water hoses leading to heater core. Has a vacuum line running to it. Make sure it works. Turn heater on. Remove vacuum line see if valve accuates. Movement it works. No movment either valve is bad or no vacuum at valve. Check and make sure there are actually coolant lines leading to heater core. Somtimes when a heater core goes bad and starts leaking (you will smell coolant odor in vehicle) a quick fix is to remove the lines and link them back to each other under the hood. No heat no defrost. Make sure this isn't the case w your car.

Bad odor from the a/c duck appears once in awhile evrytime I started the car and drive. I already have it check by Honda Service centers and they have cleaned the a/c, air duck and vents, fan, blower...


weve had sum strange issues where a small rodent had crawled up inside the dash and died inside the vehicle,but if its just a musty odor you may wanna try a deodorizing spray that you spray inside the vents,some rare issues where the odors were very bad we had to remove the dash and take out the heater box and clean out the entire unit

Bad odor (Wire sheathing?) from vents when fan is on. We definitely have an intermittant (3 or 4 times in past year) driver side actuator problem. Cannot tell if odor is coming from all vents or not....


the heater core is bad it could be leaking and thats what the smell is coming from. you only smell it when the heat is on is because air flows throught the heater core to warm it by the hot anti freeze that flows through the heater core see if you anti freeze resivoir is low.

I smell coolant when I turn on the heater in my 2001 Silverado. The heater will not get hot.


Your heater core is clogged, leaking, and/or going bad. If it was anything else in the cooling/heating system, you would not have the antifreeze odor. The heater core is located under the glove box. I hope this helps and good luck.

Radiator/Heater Coil Issue on 2002 Chevrolet Blazer


It is very possible that your heater CORE is bad. You will smell a sweet odor of antifreeze inside your vehicle if it is leaking, and possibly feel for a wet spot on the floor boards. Need to replace heater core.

Dead mouse in heating system


I would pull the blower motor out and that should allow you access to the duct work, from past expeariance the mouse hangs out around the heater core area, it warm.
