Question about 2002 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Compressor not coming on

I have a 1997 Toyota Corolla in which the compressor isn't coming on. The blower motor also doesn't work in the low position and when you depress the A/C switch the light doesn't come on. I am leaning towards the Blower motor switch since it does work in all the other setting except for low and I think that is where the A/C switch is wired to get its power from. So anyone out there with some experience with this please help.

First if the compressor isnt coming on at all .. it has a pressure switch that if it is low on freon it will not kick in .. and if your switch only works in one or two positions it is needing replaced..

Hi, when it comes to vehicle air conditioning I advise taking it to a
professional with the appropriate experience/qualification...I have heard instances of individuals being blinded by freon.
If your blower only works sometimes might be that the compressor has issues.

The compressor is working but the ac is still blowing hot air what's the problem

even if the compressor is turning doesn't mean the compressor is good. You need to have someone put a set of gages on your system to see what the pressures are on the high side and the low side.This will give you an idea what your problem is.

03 Corolla A/C will not work. A/C light comes on, engine speeds up, compressor will not run. Tests show no elect to the compressor coil, and, when jumped by a hot wire the coil will not engage the clutch...

It should have a low freon pressure switch.This may be worn or the system has low freon and this switch is over rideing the power the compressor clutch.

I want to put some freon into the AC but cannot locate the "low" valve. The RedTek guage will not fit onto the "high" valve.

follow the lines coming out of and into the compressor. The line leading from the firewall to the compressor is the low pressure line.
the line going from the compressor to the condenser located in front of the radiator is the high side.
Always charge with can in upright position through the low side line into the compressor.
