Nissan Serena 1998 Highway Star air conditioning problem

Hi
I just bought a second hand Serena. It seems the air conditoning is malfunctioning. The displays are all normal, it shows that it is working but but no matter what temperature I select (18 deg is the lowest), it seems to be blowing the same air, defintely not cold air as I used to get in my Honda Civic. Today was mid warm day with outside temperature of 23 deg C. Can you help? Thank you very much

SOURCE: Front air condition does not blow cold. Rear air condition does

sounds like a damper door in the front not working properly, these are actuated by the front temp control, the door is operated by either a manual cable, and electric actuator, or vacuum. I hope this helps you zero in on your problem. Merry Christmas

I know this is late and hopefully you have this fixed, but the problem is probably the air diverter door control. There are 2 doors, 1 front, 1 rear (middle) and they are adjusted by a single control to balance the temp front and back based on the controls. If this goes out, you either are stuck with hot air up front/cold air in back or vice versa. You can try manually moving the doors to see if they are stuck (in the duct work) or test the actual control circuit. Check your tech manual for how to do it.

simply "adding a can"is a good way to end up with non-functional A/C. the typical system has high/low pressure switches that enable/disable the system. you need to be at the correct volume of refrigerant as specified on the sticker under the hood. i recommend using the proper equipment, evacuating, pulling a vacuum, and then refilling the system with the appropriate amount.

SOURCE: Air conditioning failure above 85 degrees.

Initially I would suggest a Loss of FREON from the system, but there are also several reasons for the A/c to quit. Freon loss,[Leaking seal, Comp. front shaft seal, Split hose, Holed Condenser, Compressor Realay/Fuse failure, Thermo couple switch].
An easy out, is to Purchase 1 can of Freon with added Lubricant and 1 Can of Pure freon.
Inject the 1 Can with Lube into the High Pressure Side Adaptor Port. Look and Listen for Leaks. Start up, with Blowers on FULL speed, A/c Control on Max. A/c, and Heater Coolant Control on Cold[Blue]
Speed up the Engine to about 1500 RPM. Look to see if the Compressor Clutch on the Front is Engaged and Rotating, if it does wait about 30 seconds, and the Condenser Fan should Engage, continue to run the engine and check the Interior of the Vehicle for a change in AIR flow temperature. If it is cool, but not cooler. Stop the engine, and give about 2-3 minutes before adding more Freon from can 2.
If none of this happens to make it work, then I suggest you go to a Reputable A/c Repairer and ask for a CHECK & ADVISE ONLY,on your vehicle, so as to get an ESTIMATE, for repair of what is apparently defective in the system.
Regards,DT

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan pathfinder over heating blowing cold air.

Sounds like either your thermostat, which is the least expensive and easiest thing to change, or your water pump, or clogged radiator, which is a whole new world! The reason it wont blow hot, is because you are not getting any water to the heater core. Hope this helps.

1998 nissan frontier, while driving, the air conditioner will star blowing weak and hot and the truck starts getting weak and jerking.


Turn the air conditioning off, when it does that. The compressor is working too hard, and there may not be enough coolant or oil running thru the system, causing a lot of drag on the pulley belt, causing the truck to **** and "get weak". Have your air conditioning system completely checked before operating it again.

The speedo in my nissan serena sits on 60 no matter what speed you are going. What could the problem be?


I just took my 1993 Nissan Serena with the same issue into a auto electrician. They took it apart and found it to be the speedometer driver is broken. Apparently very common for this vehicle. Two options: have it repaired or put in a second hand speedo, the latter is slightly cheaper but then your odometer will be wrong and it could break again.

Nissan Serena sliding door is jammed shut


The electric motor is designed to release if you try to open it by hand, chances are the lock assembly has come apart in the door, and it is usually a $2 plastic clip that causes hours of frustration. to get to it you would need to pull the inner pannel off the door.

It seems the automatic idling lifter (sensor) once you switch on the a AC system has failed and thus at low idling the Ac compressor clutch gives in stopping the compressor to spin.
You have to check tht system out.
Hope this helps!
