Question about 2006 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

Hot air conditioning

I recently bought a 2006 T & C. Turning on the a/c brings about a blast of hot air. Freon has been pumped in since and so has a can of leak dye. We switched the horn relay for the a/c relay and there was no change. And we also switched the fuse for the a/c w/ no results. I am still getting hot air however. Where should I look next?

You'll need a repair book or shop manual to get the wiring diagrams. You need to know if the ac clutch is getting power, and if not, why not. It could be one of the pressure switches, or something with the main controller.

This is definitely an issue with your clockspring. The clockspring is a device in the steering column that provides electrical contacts for horn, cruise and airbag. The good news for you is this part is covered under a Chrysler warrantee / recall.

SOURCE: Recharge freon. How do you add freon to the air conditioning?

when the ac doesnt blow cold and the compressor pump doesnt click on ,this can only be done with the proper machine to remove the gas and weigh how much was taken out ,then oil recovery and a vacumn then recharge with the corerect weight of gas .

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country. It blows

Low or no refrigerant will keep the compressor from getting power to prevent damage to the compressor. I would make sure the system has freon in it first.

2006 Buick Lucerne Air condition going hot air could it be a bad fuse or relay if so how can I tell if a relay is bad


There could be a freon leak which would stop the compressor clutch from coming on. If the inside fan comes on and it blows thru the correct vents then I'd suspect a low charge of freon .

Why is my Air conditioning compressor cycling on and off?


Likely, you've lost your freon due to a leak. If the leak is slow, you can add a leak sealant and more freon yourself. If it's a major leak, that will work for a few days, and then all leak out.

What is my A\C problem?


look at your AC on the engine while it is running with the AC on see if the middle part is turning that means the pump is running but if Freon is to low it will not come on you still have a leak.

Check between the Air con condensor & radiator for grass etc... (restriction of air flow) if no restriction remove the thermostat & replace. If there is grass do not try to remove with water you will need to remove the radiator & pick it out bit by bit or use soft brush (dustpan brush) & compressed air or soft (not to hot) flame & burn to ash then blow with air. ALWAYS Blow from engine side & remove from other side so you don't force it further in. (This can take hours but is quite a common problem)

Air conditioning not too cold ??


Hello,
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
Let me explain in layman's terms how the air conditioning (AC) system works and what could be happening to your car.

Like your body, the air conditioning compressor is the heart of the AC system, and Freon is the blood. The compressor pumps Freon throughout the AC system, either the older type R12 which costs as much as gold it seems these days, or the new environmentally-friendly R134A Freon. This Freon is a gas and liquid combination that is compressed and circulated throughout the air conditioning system. The compressed Freon is pushed through the system under pressure and is passed through different sized metal and rubber hoses and a special valve called an expansion valve that cause the gas to expand and contract.

This expansion and contraction makes the Freon gas very cold. This cold gas makes its way via metal lines into the dash area of your vehicle to the evaporator core. This evaporator core is like a small radiator, except it has cold Freon circulating inside and not hot antifreeze. A small fan (the AC blower fan which you control from the control panel on the dash) sits in front of the evaporator core and blows air across this cold evaporator and then through the vents inside your vehicle.

The other objective of the air conditioning system is to remove the heat from inside the cab of the vehicle. This heat is removed by the Freon with the help of the AC condenser located at the front of the car (usually in front of the radiator). The Freon coming back from the evaporator carries the heat from the cab to the condenser via rubber and metal hoses. Just like your radiator, the condenser is lightweight aluminum with many internal winding coils.
The Freon travels through these coils, and in between these coils are small slits or fins that the Freon is forced through. The condenser will have an electric cooling fan mounted in front or behind it to push or pull air through these fins to remove the heat from the Freon. Some vehicles still use the old fashioned fan blade driven by the engine to pull air across the radiator and the condenser.
Now I know that is just a tidbit of information on how the air conditioning system works, and it is very general, but I wanted you to know what to look for to give you insight as to what might be happening with your vehicle.
A few causes of low cooling efficiency or no cooling at all at idle are:

Lack of air flow across the condenser. Make sure the electric cooling fan motor near the condenser is coming on, or in models that are equipped with a fan blade make sure this fan is turning and is turning very fast.

Low Freon levels. Freon level and pressure should be checked by your certified air conditioning mechanic.

Overheating. If the engine is running hot or overheating, it can have a noticeable negative affect on the air conditioning system. Some cars have two electric cooling fans, one for the air conditioning condenser and the other for the radiator. Make sure they are both working properly. Usually at idle on a hot day with the AC on both fans will be on.

When the vehicle is traveling at freeway speeds, the compressor is pumping the Freon throughout the system much faster and harder than at idle. There is a dramatic increase in air flow across the condenser due to 55 mph winds, and the engine is usually operating at a cooler, more efficient temperature as well, thus allowing the air conditioning system to operate efficiently.
Note: An air conditioning system that is somewhat low on Freon can still feel comfortable at freeway speeds due to the added air flow across the condenser which can overcome the ill effects of slightly low Freon. Periodic air conditioning performance checks by your mechanic are the best way to keep the system in great shape.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck

Air condition blows hot air but it has freon


You may have created an over charged condition and at this point the a/c compressor will cut off on high head pressures. This can be verified by installing gauges to the systems high and low side service taps and reading the pressures.An overcharged system will start the compressor briefly but soon cuts off once pressure goes to 350 - 400 lbs on the high side. Acceptable pressures for this system should be no greater than 250 high and low suction should drop to 40-50 psi.You might recover the charge and evacuate the system,then try bringing the charge back to proper level.A sight glass in the reciever drier really helps determining proper fill.Once all bubbles have dissipated from the sight glass during charging ,one should stop at that point to avoid overfilling.Too much freon is worse than a low charge especially in hot ambient conditions....

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

If you were low on freon before, It's possible you have a leak in your system. If you take it back, have them check for the leak before they let you drive off with another freon loss.
Good luck...

What can i do about air conditioner not blowing cold air


It could be the air conditioner pump or maybe the freon needs to be replaced in the air conditioning unit. You should definately bring it somewhere and have it looked at. You don't want to mess with freon at home. It has to be disposed of properly.
