I'm not absolutely sure on this one, but many compressors have a low pressure and a high pressure cut off switch. The low pressure switch monitors to make sure there is enough refrigerant in the system. Too low and it cuts off because otherwise your system will ice up (go figure that one out!) The high pressure switch is there to protect from clogs in the system causing damage to the compressor or other system components.

You should have a qualified professional check the system and both of those sensors. You most likely have a clog in the system which can be caused by a broken desiccant bag or a compressor that is beginning to self destruct and some piece of metal is clogging the system in a hose or at the orifice tube.

In any case you need professional help here...

This sounds like you have a compressor problem. If you take it to the service department they can test this part. It's very expensive to replace though. But thats what it sounds like. : )

2008 ford focus checked with gauge it has enough Freon but when the compressor kicks on it runs a few second then kickes off. Only blows out air the same temp as outside. This car only has 65000miles on it...


You need a repair shop with a/c knowledge to work on it

When you try & add to a leaking system & I fail to see
why people do,you let air in & over charge it

Check to see if the AC compressor is cycling or kicking in only for a short few seconds.That's low freon indication,and you need to recharge. don-ohio

Ac is not blowing out cold air. You have to put gages on the system and it shows its has freon.Checked all fuses and relays. The two fans in engingine compartment do not come on when the ac is turned on but does when the engine gets hot. The compressor engages when turned on also.
If the magnetic clutch engages the compressor and still no cold air could be still low in freon or the HVAC unit.

Blower motor not working all the time...if I bang the dash near the glove box, it comes on then works great. Is this the switch assembly, the resistor problem, or should I be replacing the blower motor?

The Air conditioning compressor will only run for short periods


You said the freon was checked then the problem may be the pressure switch located on the accumulator. It may be faulty.

2004 Mazda6 AC blowing warm air


too much freon is the same as not enough freon

Have an 04 mazda6 as well, AC seems to be the cars weakness. It takes 15-20 minutes till my car is ina driveable condition (Phoenix, AZ)

Take it in for a tune up, but I doubt the AC will be any better

Sounds like you have a freon leak somewhere. No gas or low gas in the system will not let the clutch kick in. Have it check out professionally, unless you know what you are doing in terms of low side and high side pressure check. The latter can be dangerous if you are not familiar with the procedure, if you connect the freon or the 134 can to the wrong nozzle, the can can blow up.
