Jeep liberty 2005 air conditioning only blows hot air even after filling it with freon ??? Can there be a fuse blown or something?


Did it blow cold before you put it in? You need to listen and see if your compressor is engaging when you turn your ac on and off. Something simple could be that you put too much in or too little in. It could also be your compressor gone bad on it.....

Sounds like the compressor has gone out of your AC system. They are not too terrible to change, but can be time consuming depending on location. IF the freon is good, check the compressor and you should here it at idle speed w/ hood open clicking on and off as the clutch engages and disengages when the AC is operated. If there is no clicking on and off by the compressor, new compressor will be required. IF it gets cold when first adding freon, and then fades quickly, it is likely a leak in one of the high or low sides of the lines between the coil and the compressor.

Hope this helps!

Air conditioning doesn't work. only blows out hot air


Check and see if the clutch on the front of your compressor engages. If not it could have a leak and not have any freon in it. If it has freon then you have an electrical malfunction on the ac system.

It sounds like the bearing in the compressor or the clutch in the compressor either way changing the compressor should fix your problem.

The AC in my car doesn't work. Everything has been looked at and it system has been charged. Everything works out but no cold air. The you can hear everything come on just like it would with the heat. Any...


When you put on the A/C find out if the compressor is engaging. There are pressure switches for both too little freon or too much freon. If the compressor is not engaging there is a switch on the low pressure side close to the oblong cylinder where you put in the freon. Unplug the switch and put a jumper wire on the wire harness plug. The compressor should engage. If it does you either have too little freon or the low pressure switch is bad.

Ac compressor fuse location on 2000 mountaineer


I don't think there is a separate fuse for the compressor. If there is no freon in the system to actuate the low pressure switch the compressor won't engage.

A/C is not blowing cold air


if the a/c compressor clutch is not engaging, you will never have any cold air. if the system has too much or too little freon in it, that will also mess it up. If system is undercharged, the compressor will short cycle, instead of staying on till the thermostat tells it to disengage. I suspect your problem is in the compressor and that is where i would look first.

Screeching noise, then a/c stops blowing cold air. Still blows air, just not cold air.


it could be the air conditioning clutch going out. to check turn your car on and idle it with ac on and hood open. at the ac compressor it will have a pulley on it with a clutch that engages when the air conditioning is on. if it engages and disengages it can be the clutch itself has gone bad, the ac clutch will also disengage if there is not enough freon in the ac system, will also engage and disengage if the pressure gets too high in the ac system. Depending on the year of the vehicle it will disengage at full throttle and come back on when you are not at full throttle.
If it is a metallic sounding screech for example take a coke can and drag it across pavement kind of sound it could be a bad compressor or a bad ac clutch. If it is a more rubbery sound for example a car spinning its tires kind of noise it could be a loose belt.

1. Check to make sure all belts are tight under hood
2. start car and look at ac compressor to make sure compressor pulley is turning and that the fan clutch is engaged spinning
