Question about 1998 Toyota Sienna

A/C light blinks and compressor stops working

I own a 2002 model Toyota Sienna.
When I switch on the A/C botton the compressor works for a while and then starts blowing hot air when the A/C light starts blinking. I visited a technician today and he said the refrigerant was low, and he topped it.
The system appeared to work well while I was in his shop.
The propblem reoccured a short while after I left his shop. I wonder whether his diagnosis of the problem was correct.
Please, advise

It could be correct, However when that light flashes it mean that the system have a problem for example "system pressure low" or High. Its possible that the system have a leak in it and thats why the light may have come back on again. What you need to do is have the system check for leaks with an ultra violet light and dye. Good Luck

Ihave a 2002 Toyota sienna . my ABS light is always blinking fast and my speedometer has stopped working . any ideas what the problem is


Have you recently replaced a set of front or rear tires? If they aren't the same size they will do this exact symptom. If you haven't you have a bad wheel speed sensor. I wish I could tell you which one across the Internet but I can't someone needs to hook up a scanner to your sienna. Good luck and reply if you need further advice.

2002 Toyota Sienna airconditioner light blinking


If the a/c is not working, it's most likely the clutch relay. Under the hood next to the battery, there is a fuse and relay box. One will be marked magnetic clutch or an abbreviation of that. If the part number is 90987-02022,it should be changed out to the updated relay with a part number of 90987-02028. It 's around $70 from Toyota or you could find an aftermarket one for about $17 at your local automotive parts store.

The Sienna has had problems with the relay that controls the clutch going bad. Under the hood, next to the battery, there is a fuse and relay box. One will be marked magnetic clutch or an abbreviation of that. If the part number is 90987-02022, it should be changed out to the updated relay with a part number of 90987-02028. It 's around $70 from Toyota or you could find an aftermarket one for about $17 at your local automotive parts store. On some models the a/c light will blink if this is the case but not on all. You could swap it with the fog or possibly the horn relay to see if this is the problem.

Either 2 things, the fuse is blowen, or ther AC belt is broken.
Open the hood, have some one start the car, turn AC ON, you should here a click and the engine rpm will drop slightly, you should also be able to see the compressor wetter the drive belt is broken or not.
