Can be that your heater core or hose inside car is sometimes releasing alittle heat at the clamps. So long the inside of the floor is not wet or damp or car is not over heating. I would not worry about the heater to much inside unless this does not work... Change the automatic climate control up or down to cooler or warmer i usually run it at least upto 10 or 20 degrees different than the outside anytime i drive mainly during rain or snow.. So if outside it is warmer means you need to be cooler and cooler means get warmer. Also If you don"t run that on a regular basis a quick Ac on and defroster front and back works well and generally fast.I really think that is all of your problem just get comfortable with your automatic climate setting. once in a while it may happen again only because of rapid temp. changing from outside air to inside air in your car..Rain X works really well for a couple weeks between apps.and saves wiperblades during raining times. Always drive safely and good luck
Pay attention to wires from control box itself at the ceiling assy. Sometimes they will use a different color from control box, to thermostat. For example: Green coming out of control box, is attached to a blue running to thermostat, so you would attach that blue, to "G" (fan) on thermostat. Match thermostat colors to what is at the control box originally, not what color they used to run it to thermostat from there. Most try to match them, but others don't. What model Ac unit, and what model of thermostat do you have?
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT WITH AN ASTRO VAN. THE PROBLEM WAS WATER WAS GETTING INTO THE FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR UNDERNEATH THE VAN, NEXT TO THE FUEL TANK.THIS WAS CAUSING A SHORT, NOT BAD ENOUGH TO BLOW THE FUSE, BUT ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE PUMP TO SHUT DOWN. BEST WAY TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM IS TO FIND THE CONNECTOR AND SPRAY IT WITH WATER WHILE THE VAN IS RUNNING. ALSO DO A WIGGLE TEST, THIS IS DONE BY GRABBING THE HARNESS TO THE PUMP AND MOVING IT AROUND, IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE CONNECTOR OR A BAD WIRE THE VAN SHOULD SHUT OFF.
a couple of thoughts:
Has your windshield just been replaced?
The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
The rain sensor works by projecting multipleinferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
(yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position. also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
hope this helps
No need for a repair shop. Just open the top (two big screws on each side and a few smaller ones in the back) Let it sit for another day that way and it'll be right as rain. Oops...poor choice of words.
Avoid the urge to touch the circuit boards on the inside. Static electricity could damage the circuits. Instead, put it next to a fan - or in a room with a ceiling fan.
When you're don, plug it in and enjoy your new stereo.
If your condenser blow air up through the top of the condenser and you are concern about rain water affecting the unit.
You can install a roof or rain hood about 4ft above the unit to keep the rain off, The unit must be able to blow air off without causing Hi head pressure to affect the unit, The condenser must breathe or desipate heat freely.
Tell me if your question answered or if it works for you.
