Question type: Maintenance & Repair

They also said when not possible to
keep ac on to leave heat on. I didn't
have to leave the ac on the last four
years. Is this true or was it bull. Never
heard something like this before

So I take it that it was water leak, and was inside the car. Most common leaks of this kind is the A/C box drain is plugged so the water runs inside instead of the drain tube outside. So no it doesn't make any sense cause if you run the A/C it will want to drain off the water after you shut it off or it cycles during normal operation. If anything they should have told you to disable the A/C totally as it will run when the defroster is active thus creating more water. It should not be that difficult to clean out the drain unless something crazy has happened.
