Problem solved! Turned out that not one but two mice had somehow crawled into the heater fan. Tech at dealer (must have been newest employee!) said it was quite a mess. Charge not bad either...$50 for clean out and 40 for new AC filter. Strong application of orange scented disinfectant was free.

Mice, eh? Bet they were warming up nicely right up until.....!!! Glad everything's back to normal and the pre-Christmas expense wasn't too steep. Happy Holidays to all!

After the grille insert wide-open for chance of rock debris to puncture the condensor & pipe, a 750.00 fix not covered by warranty, consider it as accident, may claim the insurance less the deductible; just another POOR DESIGN by Honda leads to this problem happened!
I have a habit of press the RECIR button before I leave the vehicle, so the damper is shut to avoid any rodents crawling inside.

Thanks....I never thought about closing the RECIR button but I will do it. Have had suggestions to hang anything from mothballs to fabric softener strips??? Too bad about your AC condenser. I had a Volvo 850 a few years ago and had a similar incident with a piece of flying plywood tossed up by a truck I was following. Broke the grill and damaged the condenser. Big $$ to repair!!
