Question about 2002 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

My AC doesn't work. When I switch it on either "Auto" or "Max AC" the fan indicater shows full on and I hear the compressor kick in but the fan doesn't kick-in and no cool air comes out. I went under the hood and the compressor line gets cold. I checked the fuse and it's good. Where do I go from here?

You need to check the AC unit under your dash. I suspect an issue with the fan. Either it is dirty, wires are loose or the fan is not working.

Could cluster fuse be prob why ac blowing hot? fan blows but hot air


Does the Compressor kick in when you turn on the AC? If it doesn't, the AC compressor is governed by the ECU. My AC went out along with an acceleration problem. hard starting, and unburnt fuel. I had my ECU rebuilt, and upon installation of the rebuilt unit, all worked perfectly again, including the AC.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

Compressor keeps kicking off 1999 Buick Century AC


Your ac system is most likely low on freon, or the cooling fan is not working.
When you turn on the ac the cooling fan should stay on.
If it stays on then you are low on freon.

I have a 97 Toyota Camry. The AC has been working great and gets really cold. Yesterday as I am driving the light on the ac power button starts to blink, after about 45 seconds the ac turns off and stops...


CHECK THE AC AND HEATER CONTROL FUSE.MORE LIKELY FUSE BLOWED BECAUSE AC COMPRESSOR COULD HAVE FAILED IF LOW SIDE IS OVER 100 PSI. THE REED VALVE PLATE IN COMPRESSOR PROBABLY DAMAGED CAUSED COMPRESSOR FAILURE BLOWED THE HVAC CONTROLS FUSE. HAVE AC SHOP CHECK IT OUT.

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan


What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

Intermittent cold air on a 2001 Grand Am GT (3400 engine)


When you say tinker with the A/C. what did he do??? Just want to make sure he did not hot wire anything to activate the compressor at the max position. If the system is low on compressor oil the compressor will not active to keep it from getting damage or low on R143A. Most place now will recharge the A/C system for $50.00 since they know that you can by a recharge kit for around the same price, but you need make sure you don't over charge the system or damage will occur. If you not familiar with the recharge procedure, have it recharged by a shop and if it's full then the problem may be a  pressure switch and that takes around 5 min to replace and i am sure the shop will let you know before they try to recharge the system by hooking up the gauges to read the pressure in the system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get some cold air again.

97 aurora AC not working


GM products have a safety feature which shuts down compressors is they run too low on refrigerant. Honestly surprised you were able to fill the system with refrigerant since the compressor would have shut off. The best way to reset the compressor is to disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 min. After reconnecting, the compressor should function again assuming there's enough R-134A in it. If there's not, turn the AC to MAX and add the refrigerant. At this point, the system should actually **** the can dry. Hope this helps with your AC problem. All the best!

I have a 96 lumina 3.1 car. the ac compressor will work fine sometimes, and other times it will not kick on. it is full of freon......?someone said the low pressure switch could be bad. i cannot find that...


Compressor clutches go bad sometimes.. it is an electromagnetic device on front of compressor. You may also need shot of refrigerant. Level may be at point where it is on brink of being low.
