No dealer has a reset for the a/c system by you mentioning that you replace everything it means the a/c compressor,air dryer,and the most important the orfice tube. if you hadnt replace the orfice tube wich converts the liquid into gas when it gets hot thats your problem.alot of mechanics wont change it as an a/c mechanic will.

My ac is charged and works; it blows cool but how or what do I need to do to make it blow colder? It has already been retrofitted for r134a.

the only way to make it colder is to set the thermostat colder in the evaporator or clean the muck out of the evaporator fins
Test the temperature at the vent by placing the thermometer in the vent and it should be around 10 degrees c
The temperature is not taken in the car as there is too much thermal efficiency lost form the vehicle
Remember that while air condition feels to produce cold air ,what is making you feel cool is the fact that the air conditioner is removing the humidity from the air in the car
Take it to an ac accredited service centre for testing as the TX valve may be partially blocked

Nissan Xterra 2011 No heat just blow cold air, coolant level is full.

Most newer cars use vacuum from intake manifold to operate the flapper doors which select heat modes. A vacuum leak or dislodged line can cause this problem. As you replaced the evaporator I would suspect a line was broken or disconnected at that time.

Your problem is most likely electrical. Check the A/C clutch relay, it is located in the fuse box in the engine compartment. You can also check the A/C high pressure switch or the evaporator temperature sensor.

My air conditioner is only blowing cold air on the passenger side. Both sides blow but only passenger side is cold. My compressor also short cycles on the low pressure safety. What would cause that?? I...

Hi, the reason for this is the location of the evaporator core, its on the passenger side, a low charge will cause the side nearest to core it to cool more. Your cycling of compressor concures with this scenario. Recharge system to specifications.

Air Conditioner Problem

the most common problem here is a defective air temperature control blend door actuator, this is what moves the door that controls air flow across the heater core or the ac evaporator core, to replace this requires u remove the dash assembly.

Air conditioner not blowing cold air

go to a parts store such as Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone and buy the A/C recharging kit they have with the rubber line and connector that connects only on the side that you need to recharge your system. If you can put air in your tires you can out freon in your a/c system.

Air will not blow cold after freon has been put in it

ymeadows: If you have properly re-charged your A/C system to the correct pressure and do not get cold air coming out of your cabins vents, then you have a clog somewhere in the A/C system. This may be caused by a dirty orifice tube or expansion valve (same part different name) or the clog could be in the evaporator or condenser. I would not continue to use your A/C until you locate the source of your problem as this may cause over-stressing of other critical A/C components. If you are mechanically inclined and familiar with how A/C systems work, I would start with replacing the orifice tube or expansion valve. These can be on the high or low side of the A/C system and varies from one make and model to another. PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SOLUTION IF YOU FOUND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL, THANKS,

Air conditioner blows cool air but it does not blow cold air.

Start by recharging your system. If you want to do it yourself. Most auto parts stores and hardware stores have recharge kits. Purchase a kit with a gauge to prevent overfilling.

Rear air conditioner

could be an electrical problem.

the solenoid for the rear evaporator is not being switch on to let refrigerant flow to the back evaporator .

another problem could be if you do not have a solenoid, then maybe the rear expansion valve is clogged that is why no refrigerant flow to the back.

tnx 4 using fixya,
