    no, I mean the actual the two fans that cool the radiator. when they turn on that's when the cold air from the ac blows otherwise the air blows hot.The blower works fine. I went and got a temp sending unit form auto zone I wonder if the will fix the problem or if the guy at the parts store was just trying to get me to buy more parts.

I assume you mean the dash vent fan? If so does it work when you have it on heat. If it works on heat but not A/C your either low on freon or the compressor has failed. If it dosen't work on either it is the squirrel cage. Could be a bad fuse or you need a blower.

When the car is idling, the heater blows out cool air but when the car is moving, the heater works fine


When the coolant in the heater core is hot from the engine and your fan is on hot air will blow through the hot fan coil, i figured it out, when i stepped on the gas i could here the coolant squeezing by the control or limiter valve, because the higher rpms make the belt spin faster which makes the water pump pump harder causing more pressure, so when u idle that hot coolant will cool down from the fan blowing on it, u need to find the control valve and open it up to full blast, then hot coolant will always be flowing through your heater coil. ;)

My AC only works when the car is in motion. It blows warm air otherwise.


Sound like maybe your a/c condensor fan is not working, should come on with a/c on, the fan sit in front or back of radiator, condensor is bolted to the front of the radiator, if its not working at stops no air blows through condensor and pressure will get high and a/c wont blow cold, while driving air is running through condersor so a/c will work fine.

Hello everyone I have a 2004 nissan titan and when I am travelling down the highway the ac blows warm I have checked the freon level and it has the proper amount of refrigerent in it and the clutch fan...


Hey Wb, You say you checked the pressure and its ok. Have you checked to see if the pressure is actually freon or just hot air..(this is from a personal experience with the same symptoms) Let some of the pressure off the system while it is running..(the low pressure valve) and if freon does not immediately come out.- Just hot air..let it bleed until freon comes out .. (mine was overcharged and I had to let out A LOT of air out of the system until freon started coming out).. try this and see if it helps.. ...mine is working fine..blowing cold air 24/7 after this .. with no other steps,,,

Check the vent plumbing under the dash with the fan on high. Just run your hand along the tubes and feel for moving air.

The a/c on my 2000 bmw 323i blows warm air when I stop at a redlight? It works fine when the car is moving..blowing cool air. Help?


Sounds like your fan is not working. If it is electrical, may be bad relay, fuse or fan motor. If it is mechanical, most likely the clutch is bad.

Nissan sentra n16 temp. overheating


If all of the things you replaced are working fine I am going to say double check the thermostat. Also make sure your fan is engaging at temp. You cam check by running till warm and then running the AC. If the car does not overheat with the AC on then your fan is not running under normal conditions (with AC off) This can be caused by a couple of different things depending on how the fan is set up. I am not a nissan expert
