Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

1 Answer

AC takes a few minutes to turn on

My AC used to turn on as usual.  However, lately it would not start up with the car (assuming you leave it turned on - or even if you try to turn on after ignition).  I tried adjusting the temp and flow controls, but with no luck.  When you turn it off and back on again, if you listen closely you can hear something engage or click when voltage is applied, but nothing happens.  Without fail, the AC will resume normal operations eventually if you leave it turned on.  Sometimes it would only take a few seconds to engage.  However, lately it has gotten worse and consistently takes about 5 to 10 minutes to kick in and start working.  I would like to take care of this before it goes out completely.  Does anyone have any solutions on what I could check.  It would appear to be something electrical, but I don't know what I am looking for or where to start testing and gauging.

You could be low on freon. as the temp increases in the engine compartment the freon will expand causing the switch to engage the compressor. let me know jimmy

I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 that will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. After that is only ambient air temps. It is a 5.7 ltr, automatic with only one set of climate controls. The heater core...


you say it will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. You don't say but I assume you mean will blow cold a few min. when turned on AC max , blow hot only a few min. when turned to heater hot. Assuming thats the situation and you say AC charged and shows good on the low side -you should charge the AC to a full charge on the low side will cause problems with the AC air compressor kicking on and off. I suggest while the engine is running and turned to AC cold max watch the AC air compressor clutch to see if it does indeed kick on and off if so charge completely. As far as the heater make certain you coolant is all the way to the top and the best way to do this is when engine is completely cold remove radiator cap and fill completely and completely close cap then fill overflow container just to the cold level. That should fix your problem.

Put new alternator and battery in 1995 Buick Lesabre with key pass will turn over and run afew seconds but wont stay running


actually a pretty easy fix. The pass key computer lost its programming. Put the key in and leave it on with the security light flashing. Just turn off all your accessories and make sure battery is pretty good charge. Anyway after you leave the key on for ten minutes the security light will come on steady so turn key off and right back on and start car. If security light still starts blinking and car stalls then do it again. It will usually work the first time but can take a few times to get it right.

I have a '95 Thunderbird Lx with a 4.6 L V8 that will sometimes turn over but will not start. It used to be a rare occurance and would eventually start after waiting awhile (sometimes an hour or so)...


i had the same kind of problem and if you pull the spark plug wires you'll see big black holds that the spark is going to the side of engine instead of going to plug. Change wires!

Blocked jets or dirty fuel , flush and clean out your fuel system. Check that the fuel pump is working at the correct pressure also.

2001 Saturn SC1 Overheats when AC is turned on


Hello donezero,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.

Try replacing the thermostat first. I see you mentioned that it overheats with the A/C on, while in neiborhood streets (or lower speeds). Also, with the vehicle parked, and the car running, raise the hood, and watch to see if the fans are coming on. If not, check the fuses in the fuse box. You may have a blown fuse. Examine both top and bottom radiator hoses to make sure there are no cracks, holes, or bubbles. If they look like they need replaced, replace them. Also, check the fuse and any relays that may be associated to the A/C pump - there should be one of each. By changing the thermostat, you eliminating it right away for being the reason of overheating. After diong all this, and the car still overheats under these circumstances, replace the temperature sensor, which is located on the intake manifol (usually close by the thermostat ) driver side of engine, toward front or center. (may be on passenger side, depending on engine). If this does not take care of the problem, consider a certified mechanic for further assistance.

I sincerely hope this information is helpful in getting your car (A/C) running properly. Let me know if I can be of further assistance in this matter. Thank you again for choosing fixya.com.
