    I keep getting what has to be water dripping steadily from my truck. Is it just condensation from the ac (which I haven't been running)? I don't even know where that usually drips.

    Is your climate controls all off?

    Makes me wonder if you have the Climate Controls in an auto function or if it is cycling on and off.

    It's not coming out the exhaust anywhere is it? Doubt it's the same thing but my F150's exhaust rusted and water would drop out of a tiny hole right around that area.

    ac compressor can run (without you pressing a/c) even when you have fan or heating especially in window defrost position ...

    if the water is from a/c system, you should find a burp valve or a similar drain line above where the water is dripping. I am not familiar with the specific location in Tundra. Its typically towards the passenger area. When hot or humid you may notice more water.

    That was my thought. Have you run the defrost ? In defrost mode the A/C will cycle too.

    Yup. That must be it. I drive around with the knob on the defrost setting but don't have the "a/c" button on.

    My little car in Japan was a Toyota did the same thing. If the defrost was on, it automatically kicked on the AC compressor regardless if the AC was on or not.
