Greetings! A rather perplexing thing happened on the way home from work today. I had fresh, cool air blowing through the central air grills when I noticed that the A/C, recirculated air, and rear defroster push button lights activated on their own.
Any attempt at shutting the indicator lights off proved futile although eventually the rear defroster light turned off on its own accord.
Minutes later, what appeared to be vapor and would soon transform into foam began seeping/spitting out of the air grills above the thermostat panel. This eventually stopped five to ten minutes afterward.
Upon arriving at my final destination, I opened the hood and heard a sort of high pitched metallic buzzing and saw a spinning belt wheel from what I believe to be the A/C compressor.
My question is whether or not anyone is familiar with this type of issue and what can be done about it. Any help or advice would be immensely appreciated!
