heater core

I have a 2000 wrangler and there is water coming out of the drain tube with the heater on. Do you think that the heater core is going bad.

That's the condensation drain tube that will drip whenever the a/c compressor is running. And the heater turns on the a/c compressor whenever it's in one of its two Defrost settings. The a/c compressor is turned on then because it helps to defog the windows much faster.
