My wife and I just bought a 2007 Honda Accord EX-L with a little over 34,000 miles. It is a Honda Certified used car, bought from a Honda dealer.
We are concerned about the amount of condensation under the car after running the a/c. I understand condensation is normal but this is a lot of water. It is water and not coolant. I have had other cars that had varying degrees of condensation puddling but, again, this appears to be quite a bit more than normal. Should we be concerned?

Thank you legitimate007. I am just a worrier. What about a musty smell in the car. Looks like a non smoker had it before me, so don't think that is it. Should I check the cabin filter?

2005 Honda Accord LX V4 mileage: 19,000. I need some help with my car's air conditioning. It is dripping out water onto the floor matt of the front driver side, and it is leaking out a lot of water onto the floor matt of the front passenger side (a lot). Both floor mats stay dry as long as the air conditioner is not on. I do not know very much about cars and I was wondering if this was just a fluke (because it has been very hot lately and the air conditioner has been on full blast), or if it is a problem that I should have fixed. Is something that I might be able to fix myself.

There should be a drain line on the bottom of the air-conditioning unit that is under the dash. The drain line should drain the condensate water out through a tube to the outside of the car. Yours is probably plugged.

There was quite a bit or rain and I drove through little high waters. As a result, some water creeped in through the doors (even though they were closed). It wasn't a lot of water though. It surely was not flooded. I took it to a car wash center and used the water extractor to take out all the water and the carpet is almost dry. But it took me 5 hrs from the time water came into the car till I took it to the water extractor.

Would this cause any trouble in the future? I know there will be electric wires running underneath the carpet and the padding. Is what I have done fine? Or are there any other precautions to be taken? Please advise. Dealers say that they remove the carpet, shampoo it and treat the cables and such stuff but are charing me $850+ for that.

The only concern is mold. If it has dried and there is no odor, you should be fine. As far as the wiring, there is minimal and it will be fine.

I drove through a flooded road about 5 hours ago (I had no choice). The water got to about the top of my hood on the front end. It has been running fine for the remainder of the day. There is no water in the interior of the car and the radio works fine. The only difference is that when I push the panic button on the remote, the horn doesn't sound as loud as it did. Should I be worried? What signs should I be looking for in case there is damage? Thank you.

Sounds like you have ruined the horn and flooded it with water. Such as when a speaker gets wet it gets quiet.

I would dry off alll sensors, and electrical components to make sure they arnt shorting out.

I noticed that the floor was wet on the front driver's side. It was raining heavy the other day and when I got in the car I could see water on the foot rest on the left side. I could also see water dripping down by the clutch pedal. I have cleared the debris from the outside of the car at the bottom of the windshield. I think there are drainage holes (from what I have read) that need to be unclogged. What do they look like and how do I unclog them? Thanks!

Hi mrsyoshu,

There are no drainage holes above the clutch pedal. You have a leak and it is most likely to be from the front windshield.

My vehicle drips water from 3 places under my vehicle. The first is about where the hood meets the car, and then about 1 foot there is another drip, and a little further down, another drip. It is not oil or antifreeze, it is clear and has no smell, so I figured it was water. What could this be coming from and is it a problem?

Hi svanden_7,

That most probably is condensation water being drained from the evaporator. Some of it could be trapped onto the cross-members and dripping off at a different location.

It is normal and nothing to worry about if that is the case.

If your not losing coolant, you are probably seeing condensation from the AC system which is normal.

You are not overheating I assume?

The fan coming on at idle is good & normal. IT replaces the volume of air that is missing from the car not moving.

Hi gary rutherford,

The hose should be the AC cooling coil ( evaporator ) drain hose and if you do not use the AC, there should not be any water coming from it.

Check if the compressor is working when the engine is running without the AC being turned on.
