Hi, I have a 2005 Honda Odyssey with an air conditioner problem. The air is cold and works well when you start the car from a cold start. However, if you start the car when it's hot, like after you have gotten gas, the air blows hot air. Everything else works normally concerning the air such as the buttons and controls. If you let the car cool off the air will work again. Any ideas?Thanks, Scott
Make (other): Odyssey
Have not thought of anything to try at this point. I would think compressor and freon are ok and that it might be some sort of sensor.

hello welcome to the site
I am master tech and will be able to assist you on this. the first step is to have this system's pressures checked this is a real common problem when the system is low and has moisture in it.

I'll accept the idea that it may not work due to low pressures. Why does it only happen when the car is hot? Why is it that it's either working great or not at all?
the systems when under a low pressures or high moisture content in the system will act different when the ambient temps are high.
their could be another issue but until the pressures are known this is the first step in knowing this.

Ok, I appreciate the information and that's what I'll do. Obviously, if the pressures are good I'll still be looking for an answer.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX that is the issue.
yes we will continue .
this would then get into some sensor testing and climate control testing.
