Odor from A/C
I have an '05 WK and when I turn the A/C on for the first 10 seconds are so I get a really old funky smell coming from the vents. It kindof smells like something wet with dead insects inside. The smell does go away after the few seconds but was wondering if this could be a dirty filter. In a way it smells like my home a/c when I turn it on for the first few seconds it smells like dead insect fumes is being blown out then the scent is gone.

Mine kinda went away. But I do smell it at times when I go from a/c on to off.

I notice the same smell from my 2008 Jeep SRT8. It is bad for the first 10-20 seconds when the jeep is turned on with AC on. Sometimes it is worse that others....

My buddy and I went to lunch and when we got back in the jeep from eating and I started it the smell was pretty bad and we both looked at each other and started laughing. Once we could talk we both agreed that it stunk like "sex"! :eek: That was the worse it ever was. Normally it is just a mildewy funk smell almost like from a dehumidifier.

My 2006 Jeep SRT8 never once did this. I've thought about the cabin air filter but that is more for outside smells not the vents and system itself. Maybe I will try the vent spray someone suggested and see how it works.

You could also try BG Frigi Fresh. You can get it off Ebay or from a BG distributor.
