Customer Question
A/C only blows warm...

A/C only blows warm air and when the AC is off, the Pilot gets very hot even if you have the temperature control on 62

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you noticed any leaking?

No leaking. When we bought it the connector to the controller on the floor was disconnected. When we connected it, it worked, but sounded like water was boiling. Now the AC doesn't work at all - just blows warm air

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Pilot?

2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pilot yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Tried pulling the controller and putting it back in. seems to cycle properly. Ran an HVAC error code (just read about that online) and it comes up with a blinking 88

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing else

Does the A/C clutch come on at all? have you had the Freon pressure checked? I would like to know the pressures on both high and low side.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
