Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?

have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

Circuit unit behind the ac controls

sounds like your blower motor has stopped working check for power going to the blower system if you have power the blower is probably bad the concern is the lack of a fuse blowing or a breaker not cycling you may have a harness problem sometimes a low grade short will heat up wires then melt them together causing a multisystem failure even though a fuse or breaker didn't blow check you harness

My a/c unit is fully charged but the freon seems to be RUNNING out of the condensation line coming from the firewall??? the a/c blows cold but i think if it keeps RUNNING out the condensation line it will...

i think what your describing is normal operation.the moisture coming out is water from the
a/c doing its job. the duct works can be cleaned with a spray cleaner sold at parts stores
if the smell is bother some.

The AC is not working now, just blows hot air. When it stopped working there was a different smell coming out. How do I fix it?

Well, if the a/c doesn't work, the smell will be different, because the evaporator (cold) isn't taking the water out of the air. It will smell as if you had just a vent and might smell a little bit mildewy.

Check the charge of r134a in the system, or just go ahead and attempt to charge it with a can of r134a refrigerant and a hose with an a/c quick connector attached available from your local auto parts store or even Walmart.

Follow the instructions and you might be able to have cold air coming out of the vents in a few minutes.

Hopefully, you do not have a fast leak that will let the r134a escape to the atmosphere.

Otherwise, it may be an electrical fuse blown somewhere.

Good luck to you.

Awful smell coming out of vents/defog/2001 ford windstar

I can't help with the chimes, but as far as the awful smell, try changing the cabin air filter. It's under the hood on the passenger side. Close to the wipers up near the firewall is a rectangle cover about an inch thick and about 12-15" long. Inside is a filter. It's very easy to remove and replace, and this fixed the funky smell in my van immediately.

Fishy, steam odor coming from AC vents

Forget the radiator tank. Your AC 'Condensate drain' hose is plugged up. This is a common problem. If you know where the hose comes out under the car you can ( carefully ) push a wire up it. If you're lucky it's plugged near the end by a mud-dauber wasp. If not, take it to your dealer and see if you can persuade the write-up guy to show you where the drain outlet is as a gesture of good faith. If they insist on charging you money, consider that when you buy your next car...
