Asked by Jan 15, 2017 at 06:58 AM about the 2015 Toyota Corolla LE Eco Plus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my cousin accidentally ran his a/c and heater on
at the same time in his car and he didn't realize
that. Now there is a burning smell coming from the
a/c vents any ideas what could've happened and
how to fix it???

Running your A/C and heat at the same time won't give you any issues. A burning smell from the A/C vents can be a couple things. What does it smell like? Burning oil? If so, it can be oil dripping on the engine or exhaust and the vapors entering the cabin. Is it an electrical smell? Weird electrical things happening? Then some wiring burnt. Is a musty smell? Maybe he burned off the mold and mildew off the A/C evaporator core.
