Toyota AC Light flashing
Here is a real money-saving tip for you Toyota owners, with a problem of your AC light flashing on the instrument panel, when the AC is on.
You may also expericence a 'no cooling condition', also.
This info pertains to the following Toyota vehicles:
2001 thru 2004 Camry, Echo and Celica
2002 thru 2004 4Runner, Corolla, MR2 Spyder
2003 thru 2004 Highlander, Matrix, Sienna and Solara
Toyota is aware of this situation, and has produced a technical service bulletin to rectify the AC light flashing condition.
What has happened here is that the AC relay
(noted as the 'AC MG CLUTCH' relay in the relay box, under the hood)
has gotten weak over time, and is not properlying transmitting power to engage the AC compressor clutch.
Toyota has an improved relay available, and can be purchased at any Toyota parts department.
The affected relays have the following part number stamped on them:
The improved relay part number is 90987-02028
The repair is quite easy, all you have to do is identify that you have a 90987-02022 relay. If so, purchase a new relay, 90987-02028, and simply remove the old one, and fit the new one into the relay box.
Once the new relay is installed, the AC light flashing problem will be cured.
We hope that this tip saves you the money that you would have paid a repair facility to daignose the problem for you.
