SOURCE: MY 2001 ELDORADO AC WON'T

Hi, the way to get the compressor to come on is to short the connector to the pressure sensor on the return line. The sensor is along the same line you were trying to charge on. Just remove the connector and use a large paper clip to connect the terminals inside the connector. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

How to add refrigerant to air conditioning system


determine the type of refrigerant, conversion kits are available but not an easy job, most parts stores have refrigerant and connectors to add to your system, follow the directions on the can.

Freon smell coming through vents on 323ibmw


I don't think there is any smell put into refrigerant,so
you may be smelling coolant from a heater hose or
heater core leak or system valve, somewhere

The A/C cycling could be low refrigerant, in which case
you have it leak tested & system repaired

You don't try to add yourself,it will leak out & pollute
the atmosphere

Fan switch dial control dosent work 99 grand prix gt.if any one can tell me how to fix it.thank you.also ac unit is making a weird grinding sound.might be low on freeon.switch dosent work so i dont no if...


I had a 97 and the knobs broke from time to time. Dealer part.
The compressor could be low on freon and/or oil but only if there is a leak in the system which would need to be repaired at some point.
A DIY can add oil or freon with a gauge kit sold at auto parts stores if the car is 1993 or newer ( R134).

No cold air coming out of air condition just hot air


Check you ac belt under the hood is not slipping. Check that your ac clutch is engaging.
Check your freeon level.
It is possible you may have a freeon leak. The mechanics will use a dye to determine if you have a leak and where it is. The leak will be repaired and new freeon put in.

Air conditioner is not working and freeon has been added what could be the problem and where. My husband thinks there may be a leak.


If you have access to the proper gauges check the low and high pressure. If the suction pressure is too low the low pressure switch will not engage the compressor.

Where do we put freeon for the air conditionner


There are only 2 fittings on your ac system. The low side is the one you put in refrigerant (r134a). It is the smaller sized fitting usually located on low side hose that connects to receiver dryer (looks like a can on passenger side firewall). The quick connect fitting on any recharge hose will only fit on this correct fitting. The other one (high side) is too large to fit. So you cant put it in the wrong one.

Ac problems


hi there sorry to hear about your air conditioning. if you ac is not running you are probally low on Freeon wich you can add your self since this is a 134-A system. all you need to do is go to your local parts store or walmart and get a can or 2 of the 134a and hook it up to you ac system and charge it. the can will tell you exactly how to do it. But first check your fuse pannel out and see if you have a A/C fuse listed.
hope this helps you.
please rate me and by the way the 134-a is only around $8 usd a can.
