Need AC help
Having some trouble with my AC. It works fine on a day to day basis, but on an extended road trip 2+ hours it will start to act weird.
The blower continues to blow at what ever speed you have it set at, 1-4, but slowly less and less air comes out of the vents until it basically just stops blowing air at all.
So if I have the blower set to its highest setting, you can hear it blowing really hard, but only a small amount of air will trickle out of the vents.
The air will also get warm like the AC is no longer working either. If I turn the AC off and continuing to run the blower it will slowly go back to the normal amount of air that should be coming out of the vents.
It is a really annoying problem and I think that it may have something to do with freezing, because the problem is usually accompanied by some mist or a small amount of fog coming from the vents as it happens.
Is humid air causing something to freeze shut?

The system is freezing up, it's a known issue with the 02/03's. See the TSB info in this thread and note if your VIN is within the affected range.
The fix as indicated is a replacement thermosensor and control module. I did this fix on my '02 a few years back and it works.

sounds like freezing. Do you have a cabin air filter? maybe it's getting time to change and the lack of flow means that your evaporator is slowly freezing up.
