Question Experts Advice wanted

HI
I have a strange question, why is water dripping from the exhaust, also the tail pipe (outlet) has what to me looks like steam, and its wet.
My climate is tropical, no snow no rain.

Also it is not overheating, no coolant in the oil, no oil in the plastic fill up tank ( don't know the correct name heheheh)

Thanks for your input.

Please look at the pics for what i mean.

You can clearly see rust at the joint, water droplet and a small puddle.

Have not driven my car for 11days I just start it and idle it for 5 to 10min so the battery would stay fresh.

Car is stuck in "LIMP MODE" See other post

Mechanic with code reader and software no available till Wensday

Also what is "Check Control Lock" ? I get this display on my OBC, thats what I think coz its missing a few pixels.

Last thing is this the correct battery(link has pic)

part of a result of combustion is hydrogen and when that mixes with the oxygen in the air it actually produces water... every car produces water from combustion when is isn't fully warmed up and there really isn't anything to worry about with it. This is why many times the people who drive short distances to work and such that don't allow their cars to warm up to evaporate the water in the exhaust pipe, often find their exhausts rusted though...

like i said before, it's normal and isn't anything to worry about.
