    The freon level/pressure appears to be correct.  There is a load higher than normal on the motor during the 3 seconds it stays on line

  • jlbuf1 Oct 20, 2008

    Yes

  • jlbuf1 Oct 20, 2008

    The compressor will operate for about 3 or 4 seconds then shut off.  I checked the relay and it is fine.  I also jumpered pins 1 and 2 in the relay socket and the compressor will run.  I only did that for a few seconds because I don't want to damage the compressor.  I can also tell that when I do this, it loads the engine heavier than it should so I am assuming the compressor is dragging...maybe not enough lubrication.  The fan for the A/C inside the cabin will only work on Hi but that may be a result of the compressor not operating properly.

    both radiator fans are on for the 3-5 seconds the compressor runs, but shuts off when the compressor drops off. Also, when I checked the pressure when I went to add freon, the pressure in the low line was high.  I compared it to the operation of my other car (acura) with the same system, it was in normal limits and dropped into the correct range when the a/c was turned on...but not the Honda with he issue.

Low freon level could cause this...the low side drops to a vacuum condition and the compresser shuts off

    does the rad fan come on

  • Russell Bailey Oct 20, 2008

    if the radiator fan isnt coming on the pressure can build too high and shut the compressor off.....

  • Russell Bailey Oct 20, 2008

    at this point i believe we have checked everything you can...it needs a dealer

2003 Odyssey dual A/C Blows hot air front & back. High and low pressure compressor lines are hot. Is it feasible that the Air Mix Motor Assembly is the problem? If so, how do you check?


No the door would not be the problem. One AC line with the compressor running should be ice cold (large line) and the other line hot to the touch

Air conditioner not cold


Do you hear a clicking sound with a/c on, coming from under the hood, if so that's a sign that the a/c system is low on freon, some time when freon is to low the a/c compr won't come on at all, the system has a low pressure switch that won't let the compr come, so the compr won't get damage due to low on freon, have it service (recharge) and have them put some dye in there also, that way they will be able to check for leaks, freon don't wast, there has to be a leak some where's, that's the reason for the dye, if it's a very small leak, they might not be able to find it then, but when it happens again, with a UV light they will be able to look for the stain from the dye, and that's where the leak is at.

AC STOPPED BLOWING COLD; ONLY BLOWS ON MAX MANUAL SETTING


Your AC is low on refrigerant; The AC compressor needs a minimum amount of regrigerant to run. If and when it does run (while low on refrigerant) the air coming out of the vents will not be cold. The refrigerant you require is R-134A and is available over the counter but if you are the least bit unsure as to how to add refrigerant, taking it to a garage that does AC recharging would be your best play. If you want to try to add refrigerant on your own you will need the following, 1LB can of R-134A, an AC hose adapter to deliver the refrigerant, and preferably an AC pressure guage to ensure you are not overfilling the AC line which will damage the system.

Where is the low pressure switch for my Honda Odyssey 2003 AC ?


The A/C pressure switch is located in the high pressure line (the skinny one) on the passenger side of the engine compartment just under the fuse/relay box. The switch has three functions: <28 psi, the switch opens to protect the compressor from lack of lubrication. >220 psi, the switch shifts the radiator and compressor fan to high speed. >455 psi, the switch opens to protect the compressor seals. Check to see if you have any powertrain DTC's first. A faulty engine coolant temp sensor can cause problems with the compressor clutch relay. If the radiator and compressor fan come on with the A/C on but the compressor clutch does not operate, check the compressor clutch relay. You can also obtain Heater control panel diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's) by turning the ignition switch on. Then turn fan switch off. Press recirc button to select recirc air. Press and hold recirc to turn off recirc air but this time continue to hold the button down until recirc light comes on for two seconds and then goes off. If there is any trouble, the recirc light will then blink a code (if no trouble, the light will remain off) 1 blink = problem in air mix control motor circuit. 2 blinks = a problem in mode control motor circuit. 3 blinks = a problem in evaporator temperature sensor circuit. (this one could be a factor in your case) Turn the ignition switch off to end the test.

It sounds like a vacuum leak or blend door problem.

Rear air conditioner


Hi Moonaw,
Take the vehicle to an expert on AC and ask them to check the gas pressure. If that's ok, then have the evaporator (that's the thing that looks like a small radiator which is the heat exchange unit inside the cabin. also have them check the expansion valve for the rear compartment...The fault must be in that section as the condenser, dryer and compressor are common to both front and rear outputs.
