Most likely you have a freon gas leak ,you need to bring to an auto electrician with ai/c service sign. It might be expensive if your a/c hasn't been retrofitted yet(gas conversion of cars pre-1993 model). But it might be just electrical problem.

Hi Rhonda,

I'm from Lawrenceville, now in PA.

Sounds like it does need servicing. Probably best bet, unless you get a recommendation for an independent garage, is to take it to a dealer.

On my 2001 Honda Accord EX, the cooling fans will not come on when the air conditioner is turned on and it will not cool. What is causing this?


sounds like an air conditioning issue if your only complaint is the fans not coming on when air conditioning is used. you need to have the a/c sys checked out to see if you have a leak or perhaps refrigerant may be low. sometimes you may have a compressor that no longer works so the system may not be building up pressure so the pressure switch does not cycle the fans.

Fans not working/Overheating


Probably the temperature sending unit...if not that the relays...they should be relatively cheap and easy to replace...

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

The one fan willl not come on but both will when motor is hot


I'm not familiar with your particular car, but this info may be of some help to you...

Dual fan cars work in a few ways:
1) Some only use one fan during normal cooling, and turn on the second either when the temperature reaches a certain level, and/or when the air conditioning is running.
2) Some use both fans for normal cooling, but at least one of the fans have a dual-speed motor. Generally only one has dual-speed motor, which operates at low speed during normal cooling cycles, and operates at high speed at a predetermined temperature, and/or when the air conditioning is running.

Based on this, it's possible that your system is working correctly, or you have the chance that your low speed portion of the cooling system is not functioning. Check the wires going to the fans. If there are only two wires, then it's a single speed fan. If there are three wires, it's a dual speed fan.

Based on that information, you should be able to determine if your system is working correctly or not.

Hi, I have an Honda 1996 LX, and the air conditioning has stopped working , also both fans are not working , I have checked the fuses and they seem fine , also I looked at the wires and and nothing stands...


the fans should work only when there is liquid inside , if you don't have any freon then fans don't work and you don't have ac check if you have freon if you don't have than you have a leak most likely on the joints if you have freon then check the condenser if is coming on.
