Is the AC pump seizing up? If so it will cause a real drag on the engine (I know) causing a huge increase in fuel consumption. If your pride and joy is a 24 valve just take the drive belt off the Pump, easily done.

The water is most likely from the heater matrix. Not good news! Sad

Pls. members what should be the level of the coolant indicator stick on dash when ac is on and when ac is not on  because my car temperature will rise a bit above the middle when ac is not on and will be at the middle when ac is on. does this temperature level has any side effect on my engineHuh

When the a/c is on the fans operate at low speed to cool the a/c gas. At the same time they are cooling the engine coolant. the fans start and stop automatically as required.
With the a/c off and normal running the fans do not operate until the engine coolant temperature rises above normal (on my cars when the needle is almost out of the top of the normal range), then the fans start on low speed until cooling is sufficient.  
If the temperature goes into the red then the fans operate at high speed.

Good morning pipino.
 
It is far too beautiful a morning for somebody to be so frustrated.
 
I have 2 Scorpios and very often the cc will decide to play up and I have to turn the knobs on and off to get the response I want.  It is so annoying and I expect the cause could be that the knurls on the knobs have got a bit greasy over the years.  It could be that the cc panel on the dashboard needs to be removed and the back of the knobs given a good squirt with Electric Cleaner, turning the knobs through their travel range at the same time, hopefully to ensure that the cleaner gets everywhere.  It is probably best to remove the whole of the dashboard panel in order to access the problem area, doing the job this way means that you won't necessarily have to take off the black cc panel as it is a pain. If you decide to remove the cc control panel take care when using a flat blade to ease it out so that you don't damage the dashboard.
   There is a flat multiplug joining the cc panel that is held in place by two side clips, they will unclip easily enough, however be carefull when pluging it back in:  don't force anything, lining-up the two halves is tricky but with patience you will get there, then slide the securing clips up and over the top of the plug and they will click gently into position.
 
I do hope this helps Pipino. I am no expert and have relied very heavily on the good people on this site for many years.

@nunnspoet thanks for the advice but my car ac still work like when I turn ignition on my blower comes on at low speed, when I start the car the ac button comes on and the car ac start working, when I turn the knob to highest the blower goes highest and when I turn it back to off the blower goes lower and won't go off, when I press the ac button the compressor goes off but blower still on at a very low speed and that's how I drive around town with my blower on. I can't even do a reset since the blower comes on when ignition is on, and I have carried out several test on the HBC but working fine, is there any parts to change sirHuh?

I seem to recall this problem from a long time ago and it was decided that the blower motor is always on but at very low speed. I will try and find the original posts about this and post the results if I find any, but in the meantime have a read of the main web pages about the A/C so you understand the intricate workings of the system.
this page in particular gives quite a detailed explanation
