Took it to the dealer and they diagnosed evaporator Mulfunction "leaking gas" that's where the smell was coming from. They put a new evaporator, AC was back and the smell is gone.
Thanks for the response. The smell that I'm referring to is only present when the AC is off, and it does not smell like a chemical. Did yours smell when the AC was off, and did it smell "chemical", or "organic"?
