When I start up my Charger I swear I feel like she has been started up in the middle of a Hog Farm!! What can I do to rid my Charger from the terrible smell that is blowing from the A/C. I get nervous when people walk up to my car in fear that they can smell the ordor from my cabin! YUCK!
Hog Farmer NOT!
I've got the same old musty smell when just using the ventilation fan. I have to turn on the a/c to get rid of the smell. I have a 2006 Charger with 126,000 miles and never had this problem. I guess I will see what the dealer can do.
Mine only smells when the heater is on. A/C is fine. It smells more like dead mouse to me, but the garage told me I'd have to go to a body shop and have it torn apart to find it or to check the filter inside the engine compartment (which mine is not equipped with). Guess I'll take mine in for the recall I received a card for in the mail and ask the mechanic at the dealership to look.
Horrible smell coming from ac...I been to the dealer at least 5 times for this problem...each time they try something different but the smell continues to come back...I'm really getting p***ed off...I purchased this vehicle new and I'm having more problems with it than my old vehicle!
Have a "moldy" odor from the HVAC vents. Took the car to the dealer who used some sort of disinfectant spray ... charged me $85 ... took care of the problem for about a month ... odor is back. I have had limited success with Lysol sprayed into the air intake (take the filter out first). I understand that the problem may come from a blocked drainage hose in the air box ... which I can (yet) find.
After the vehicle sits in the hot sun all day, when you go out to start it and the a/c is on its smells like a dead camel in the car. It is very embarasing if you have someone riding with you, not to mention if you have just eaten you feel like you are going to loose your lunch. To this day it still has not been fixed. We have had the car in the dealer several times and this is the first I have heard about Dodge issuing a cleaner / disinfectant to coat the evaporator to inhibit bacterial growth.
same deal. Upon starting my car for about 10 seconds this nasty moldy, musty smell blows out my A/C, then it subsides. Have taken it back to the dealer twice for cleaning in the past month. Now I will do some investigative work myself to solve this issue. I love this car! this is my only issue with it since I bought it a month ago.
