Tried R134 charge but it would not take any.

I think the Fuse may be bad. Which fuse is it in the panel? The card does no indicate AC perse.

Thank you.

1. Is compressor engaging? You cannot just stuff referigerant into the system without knowing how much is in there already. If you do, you can do far more damage to the system! 2. Are there any leaks? Find out before wasting your time on charging. If system is empty, it must be purged before charging. Air in system will also cause problems
3. There are several control units and sensors on an a/c system. They should be tested before doing anything. This is one area that requires far more than guessing to service!!! System is pressurized and can be dangerous to work on as well!! My best solution is to have a competent shop look at it. In the long run, it should be cheaper and safer than diong it yourself!

I have a 2002 pt cruiser that is blowing the ac 10amp fuse repeatedly. I mean within minutes of changing it. Also the ac is only blowing hot air. Can someone please help.


An AC system blowing hot air is usually due to a low freon charge or a non operational AC compressor. If the fuse blows, disconnect the compressor electrical plug and turn on the AC. If the fuse doesn't blow, suspect a compressor problem. If the fuse continues to blow with the compressor disconnected, there is a direct short between the ON/OFF switch and the compressor which can take hours to diagnose

If the temperature control is on cool....sounds like you have other problems with AC. ( compressor not working, needs R134,) Check under the hood for a box that has fuses in it, their are also relays in it. Look for the relay marked AC.

2001gti vr6 ac not working. Blowing hot air. Is it posible bad module?


First check the ac fuse, if it is ok check to see if the clutch is turning when the ac switch is turned on. If clutch does not engage you should check the ac relay. It is usually located in the fuse box. You can switch places with it and another relay with the same number in the box. If compressor still doesn't run it may need to be charged with R134. If compressor runs for a few seconds and shuts off and continues doing this with control on high. It nees more refrigerant added.

AC Is not blowing cold air. What type of freon


Your cars use R134. Older cars have to be converted to R134

AC does not work


Check the fuse for the A/C and try refilling the A/C with R134. You can buy the re charge kit at Auto Zone or Wal Mart, almost any Auto parts store. If the system is low on R134 the A/C compressor will not activate to keep it from burning out.
Try checking the fuse first then re charge the system with a can 12oz of R134. Just keep in mind not to over charge the system. Just follow the instruction and you'll be fine.
Keep me posted, be glad to help out.

2002 New VW Beetle is only blowing hot air out of vents even when set on cool. I was driving and I made a turn at an intersection and all of a sudden the cool vent air turned to hot air like I had the heat...


On the bottom of the air unit is the lever that changes temps. It likes to fall out of place.I propped mine back with a piece of half-inch copper pipe a couple of years ago.Remove glove box then panel on front side of console to access.
