Q: AC not blowing cold air in 2008 Honda Ridgeline

asked by on February 10, 2016

The air conditioner doesn't blow cold air, though the panel still works.

Your car probably needs to have some refrigerant added to the system and maybe some stop leak. If there is a leak in the system the die will show up where the leak is and then the part can be replaced that is leaking. I would recommend having a technician, from YourMechanic, to come out and inspect the AC issue.
