SOURCE: 91 Honda Civic Wagon air conditioning inop

Hello,

I have something you can check. The system has a low coolant safety usually plugged in about midway of the coolant reservoir. There will also be a plug above that one for the high coolant safety. If the mechanic let too much freon out of the system when he changed the motor the safety will not allow your clutch to kick in or send power to the relay. The way you can check this is to unplug it from the reservoir and take a straight wire and jump across the plug. If the clutch kicks in when you do this that's your problem. I would only do this to test it then take the wire out. You don't want to run it with the low coolant jumped out for too long.

I hope this helps and have a great weekend

SOURCE: jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA

the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

SOURCE: Air conditioner stopped cooling. Dealer diagnosed

It could be that there was more than one leak and the dealer found only one. The AC system has two pressure switches to protect the compressor from damage---a low press. switch cuts off the compressor when there is not enough refrigerant in the system, the high switch cuts off when pressures get so high they could blow out the seals. Both are a result of a leak--refrigerant leaks out and air can leak in. Air will compress and when it does, it gets hot--so no cooling, and pressures go way up. So the compressor may have been stopped by those protective switches.

Of course, there could be a bad relay or other circuit malfunction.

Another possibility is that the compressor sat too long before being repaired (but we are talking about weeks going by here, not days). The air and moisture (humidity) that leaks into the system during this time creates acids that will attack the metal reed valves in the compressor. On restart, the damaged metal valves eat themselves in short order. If this is the case, the compressor ran until it seized and will need to be replaced. This particular problem is impossible to diagnose. So the dealer may have done his best.

SOURCE: My air conditioner is blowing hot air! We tried

It still seems that you don't have enough refrigerant by what you have explained .Anyway you look at it the a/c system is leaking way above what is normal for your honda.you need to get some gauges and place a small charge of refrigerant with florescent dye in it (you can buy this at your local parts store)and use a ultra violet light (This also you can buy this at your local parts store)and check to see where the leak is coming from at connections of hoses and around the compressor.This will tell you it is leaking and where and what further action needs to be taken.

SOURCE: AC compressor won't turn on by itself.

I would check the low pressure switch next. The switch cuts power to the compressor if the pressure is too low. The switch can fail.
Same goes for the high pressure safety switch.
As for leaving the relay bypassed, you would need to use a test light or meter to see if you are using battery power with the key off. I would not recommend it.

I have a 2001 Saturn SL2. The air conditioner only blows warm/hot air. I don't know if this is related, but the car also has a leak around the radiator. It constantly needs to be filled with...


No, these problems are not related. The radiator is a sealed system and you may have a leaking hose, bad water pump or the radiator may have developed another hole in it.

The A.C problem is one of three things.

1. The A/C Freon has run out of the lines. This is a fluid used to maintain cold temperatures and produce the cold that actually comes out from your vents. It could be as easy as recharging the A/C system.

2. It could be the high pressure line that feeds the freon to the system. This would require replacing the hose and recharging the system.

3. It could be the A/C Compressor is bad and need to be replaced and the system recharged.

Each of these are progressively more expensive and should be fairly easily diagnosed, albeit by a automotive professional. I would not suggest you try to fix this yourself.

2002 lancer air cond serviced recently and now the compressor wont kick in


The compressor is designed not to kick in unless there is enough coolant in the system. If the air conditioner is low on coolant it will not run when the AC is turned on. If it was serviced but not sealed up correctly , the coolant may have leaked out. You will have to stop the leak and recharge it for the compressor to kick in.
Also be sure to double check the fuses on the car. Flat fuses and block fuses just in case a system was accidentally shorted.

How do i recharge my a.c. My air conditioner blows out warm air. why and how do i fix it?


if the system is low on charge u must repair the leak before you waste the $25 on refridgerant, most likely the AC compressor is leaking and will need to be replaced, charging the AC after replaceing a compressor requires special equipment, so find a good shop.

Air compressor does'nt kick in


you may have a leak in your ac system. its possible that the previous owner charged the ac to help sell the car. most newer cars have a sort of safety switch to protect the compressor from damage. if the ac pressure is too low, the compressor wont turn on. have a shop do a quick check of the pressure. it only takes a minute or so. if it is low, then thats definitely your problem. you will need to have the leak fixed and the ac recharged for it to work properly.

My ac wont work


Must be Air-Condition System Lines/ Hoses leaking R12 Freon (gas).

MAYBE THE PULLY HUB BEARINGS FAILED OR
DUE TO VERY LOW R12 FREON (GAS ) will not work.
Because there is a switch in the receiver/dryer prevent AC from working when low R12 Freon present, to protect the system & compressor damages.

You must fix the leaks, before recharging it.

They must **** the old (residue) gases from the system & lines / hoses...... & stay in the vacuum pump 30 minutes to proof no more leaks.

Recharge some oil for the old type R12 Freon gas.

Before recharge it to 62-67 psi R12 Freon

The air conditioner blows hot air. Is there a way I can test for a leak in the system or does this require a technician? I am thinking it's not a compressor because it is blowing.


Apart from doing a low side pressure check, you can try to recharge the system yourself with a refill kit that's readily available at most auto parts stores. If you're concerned about a leak, also get a can of R-134A with the UV dye that will show any leaking components.
RECHARGING AC SYSTEM


  1. Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
  2. Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
  3. Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
  4. Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
  5. Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
  6. You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
  7. Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
  8. If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

Air conditioner compressor clutch went out twice


The air conditioner turns on even when you don't use it. Like anytime you have your defrost on, it helps dry the air inside of your vehcile. So by letting the leak continue the clutch turns on then off on then off over and over instead of just kicking in and staying on. Yes, if you don not fix the problem it will continue. I wish I had better news for you.

Air conditioner works intermittently. Will just stop and start or go off and stay off for a couple days. The air that comes out when it does work is very cold. Any ideas what is wrong?


if you recently had the system recharged they may have over filled the system. The ac system has both a HIGH and a LOW cutoff point to keep from damaging the compressor. If it is cycling the compressor on and off (you should be able to tell this by the ac clutch clicking on and off occasionally. If the pressure on the lines gets too high it will cutoof to prevent blowing the lines, if it gets too low it will stop the compressor from damaging itself. I had overcharged my 90 nissan once and it acted this way, it really acted up especially on very hot days.
