If the compressor is turning off and on, you are either low on freon, or grossly overcharged. Get it checked by a professional with a machine with the ability to measure the exact amount of freon going in.

I have a 2003 toyota corolla. My AC would blow cold air for a min or two then when the compressor shut off it would no longer blow cold air or come back on. A new compressor was put in it but it did not...


the ac clutch relay is the problem. It is located in the under hood fuse box. It is a $10 part. The relay will make a clicking sound when activated but the contacts inside are burnt causing no electrical flow to the ac compressor. Simply unplug and replace. The relay is labeled M/G CLT .

replace or blow out the cabin air filter as well. It is located behind the glove box. Instructions are in your owners manual.

Hi..i put in the thing in the AC to make it get cool..and hot air still coming out of the vent..its not blowing cold...even the compressor comes on...but only one of the fans come on...can u help me...


The blend door is inside the box where the air flows from outside into the car. The air goes through the air conditioner first, then it goes to the blend door. When the door is open, the air will then go thru the heater and get hot. When the door is closed, the cold air will come out the vents. In this way, the blend door controls how much air goes thru the heater. When you are running the A/C, you want the blend door closed. If your a/c compressor is working but you are not getting cold air, the blend door may be stuck open.
My book shows your blend door is behind the glove box. It also says your door is controlled by a cable. What you should do is look behind the glove box to see what happens when you change the temperature on the panel. It should move a cable behind the glove box that turns a lever on the door. The cable should turn the lever as far as it will go. If it doesn't do that, it is either broken or needs to be adjusted. It may have slipped out of it's clamp. To adjust, loosen the clamp, turn the knob to cold, and push the door fully closed, then tighten the clamp.

Let me know if it doesn't look like what I'm saying or if you have other questions.

Air conditioning is not cold


Probably the refrigerant fluid pressure is too low. You can get an inexpensive (about $20) R-134a recharge kit with pressure gauge from a discount store (Wal-mart) or auto parts store. Follow the instructions. It's worthwhile to try recharging to see if the a/c system will hold a charge, before you spend more money on expensive diagnostics and repairs. Also, you should try to determine whether the A/C compressor is coming on. If it is working you should be able to hear it engaging. Many A/C compressors are designed to not engage if the fluid pressure is too low, so make sure that the pressure on your recharge gauge is at the recommended level. Possibly the compressor fuse may have blown out, so check the compressor fuse in the fusebox under the hood. If the fuse is ok, and the compressor does not come one even after you have recharged the system, this tells you there might be a problem with the compressor. Another possibility is that the A/C switch has gone bad. You will need to access it with a voltmeter to test it. What you hear behind the glove box is the evaporator. Some low-level noise is normal.

Vent Control Noise Behind Glove Box


The noise is coming from the blend door motors.
All of the climate control doors (vents, defroster, temperature, recirculation etc) are controlled by electronic motors. As the motors age they tend to make a buzzing noise when they move.

There is a software upgrade that is available to minimize the noise, but it will always make the noise to some degree.

Hope this helps.
