Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
This can be due to a number of reasons ranging from a simple blown fuse to a large leak that has permitted the refrigerant to escape from the system.
Check your car's owner's manual to locate the fuse box and the the air conditioner fuse. Check and replace if blown with the correct size replacement (as shown in the manual or fuse box - not necessarily the same size as the old fuse).
Newer cars use a "serpentine" belt - a single belt that "snakes" around every pulley; while older cars had dedicated belts for the alternator, power steering air conditioning, etc. You may have simply broken the A/C belt if yours is an older car.
Another source is a leak of system containing the refrigerant. A simple recharge of the system by a trusted mechanic should get you going again for $150 or less. All systems leak - but many systems never need recharging because the leak is so small. regardless, the mechanic should do a leak check with nitrogen first to determine how big your leak is - and if easily repaired - he should be permitted to make these repairs. Small leaks may take months or years to permit enough refrigerant to escape before the A/C system no longer functions. A large leak may render the system unusable in a few days, hours or if big enough - mere minutes. Obviously, paying $150 for a day or two of air conditioning is not very wise - that is why I suggest finding out just how large the leak is by "leak checking" before blindly recharging.
These are a few of the common problems - there are others - bringing your car to a trusted mechanic is the only way to be sure. Good luck!

SOURCE: white smoke from air vents
Could be an incorrect refrigerant charge or defective pressure switch causing the evaporator to freeze and the air flow over it is causing the ice to melt and the resulting white smoke is condensation

The problem is a 1/8 diameter hose that runs from the front of the engine over the top and connects at the rear of engine on the drivers side. It is a vacuum hose #GM15967970 It cost about $6.22 at your GM dealer. Hope this helps Bill. My E-Mail is Uflyups@aol.com

It could possibly be the cabin air filter is clogged, especially if it has never been changed. Aside from that it is probably one of the stepper motors that adjust the various vent gates in the air passages under the dash. Although replacing the cabin air filter on this car is fairly easy, comparatively speaking, you do have to remove the glove box in order to do it.

Have you checked the Aux switch near the bottom of the center control console.
There should be a knob with: Aux, Off, 1, 2, 3. This is the switch for the rear AC blower.
If the driver wants to control the rear AC, use the 1, 2, 3 settings.
If you put it on Aux, Than the rear AC is controlled by the passenger in the back seat using the extra controls located on the Overhead DVD player. (The front AC must be on the rear to work)
