Question about 1999 Acura TL
Acura TL 1999
The blower inside the car is working fine.
I am pretty sure that the airconditioner compressor is not engaging.
There are two fans in front of the radiator. Only one of them turn on. The one that is working is the one that is closest to the battery.
For the fan that is not working, I measured 5 volts when the working fan is operating.
Any suggestions as to why the compress is not working. There is not cool air.
Most common cause is that your A/C system is low on R134a and needs to be recharged. All A/C system has small leaks through O ring's ect. Once the pressure is to low in the system, the clutch will not operate to keep it from burning out. The R134a is mixed with compressor oil to keep the compressor cooled and from seizing up. You can buy a recharge kit with the gauge at Auto Zone or Wal mart for just under $50.00, That includes two cans of R134a and the hose with the gauge, just follow the instruction. If the A/C works after recharging and stop's working again within 2 weeks then there is a large leak that needs to be addressed before the next refill. Good luck and hope this helps, before you go through all that check the fuses. good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
