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"?
