#47 of 71 2003 pilot a/c
Mar 13, 2012 (1:39 pm)
my 03 honda pilot has never given me any problems. but when i turned the a/c on last week it just blew hot air. my husband took it to wk & re-charged it & it passed leak test. It seemed to blow cold air again that point but the temps had also been back in the 40 & 50's. turned a/c on on another 75 degree day & it blows hot air again. what is wrong w/ my a/c??
also would like to add that for almost two years now ever so often it sounds like to me the fan motor is making a weird sound. especially if i hit a bump. its a grinding type sound. I can turn the power off & it will quit. this happens w/ heat or a/c. sometimes if i have my fan on high it will do it & the only way to keep it from happening that paticular moment is to keep on low. not sure if the two problems coincide. I have no prob w/ my heating & my a/c worked perfect last summer.
#49 of 71 AC - Loud Fan Blowing, No Air Coming Out Vents
Mar 23, 2012 (10:02 am)
i have a 2007 pilot ex-l. the airbag/srs indicator came on yesterday. shortly after, the AC stopped blowing air from all vents, the display went blank as did the exterior temp reading (--- F). meanwhile, i could hear a very loud fan sound - as if the AC were on high - coming from the area where the center console is.
thanks for any help.
#50 of 71 2012 Pilot A/C moaning noise
May 15, 2012 (7:34 pm)
Have a 2012 Honda Pilot LX with just under 10K miles on it. The A/C has been making this load moaning sound everything it comes on. Took it into the dealer and they said they called the tech line and the problem is still under investigation. Filed a complaint with customer service, they just told me today that there is nothing they can do but the issue is still under investigation and refuse to work with me to get it resolved!! ie trade in or return.
Anyone else having this issue??
#51 of 71 a/c stuck on ice cold 2004 Pilot

My 2004 Pilot seems to have the a/c stuck in the ice cold position. The temperature control no longer seems to function at all. Has anyone experienced this before? At times it seems to have difficulty starting after being driven now too and I am wondering if it might be related. Any ideas?

I also have the same 2012 Pilot A/C moaning noise. I can hear the noise more clearly when my 2012 Pilot is standing. It is very annoying. I have not taken to the dealership yet. Perhaps I should. However, I doubt they will do anything about it.
#53 of 71 Honda RD1 A/C failure

Good Day Gentlemen
I have a Honda RD1 with similar A/C problems except the fuses in the engine compartment are being burnt. Where can this come from? The electricians have not touched the resistor. We all need help

#55 of 71 Condenser damaged due to "Road Hazard/Foreign Object"
Jul 09, 2012 (10:03 am)
So I take my 2007 Honda Pilot to the dealer to have my A/C worked on since it stopped blowing cold air and I get a call back from the Service Technician to tell me that there's a hole in my condenser due to "foreign object" that struck it. My question is wouldn't the undercarriage guard that protects the oil pan and other engine components be able to block this? I have Honda Care coverage and when I called them, they told me that it wasn't covered under the warranty. What's not to prevent this from happening again? I think this is a poor design on Honda's part and not the fault of myself or any driver. So upset that Honda wants to charge me almost $700 on a repair that can obviously happen again at anytime. Completely BS...they should do a TSB/Recall on this issue.

Unfortunately, in order for your a/c to work efficiently the condenser needs to be in front of the vehicle where there is maximum air flow. All vehicles have this issue not just Hondas. If the condenser was re-located or covered to protect it, your a/c wouldn't be as efficient. Some drivers may drive 100,000's of miles without incident others may encounter it several times. It's not Hondas fault. If a rock ran into your windshield, would you also think Hondas have a problem with windshields? Your car insurance may cover that repair. It depends on your policy carrier and your coverage.
