The compressor will not engage unless there is Freon in the system to compress. Check or have checked the freon level. You can get the refill kits with a guage from any auto parts store if you are willing or able to fill it yourself.

Make sure the a/c switched on the inside is pushed. If that is on and it still doesn't work, its the connector to the compressor.

When the vehicle gets warm the air conditioner kicks off when idling and the engine starts to heat up because I think the fans shut off but when you take off the air works again


Are you sure you have the air conditioning on and not the fan?? sounds very much like it. The airconditioning compressor is discrete, separate from the engine/heater.
Is your coolant reservour fully charged with coolant?
Think you may need to check these

Why will my 1993 ford aerostar air conditioner will not turn on after i put in the freon?


You have to add 134a refrigerant while the engine is running and the A/C is on max with temp setting at lowest level. Without the proper charge in PSI, the compressor will not kick on. If the pressure is correct under those circumstances, You either have air in the system ( take it and have it pumped down then refilled) or the compressor is bad.

Air conditioner in my truck does not work all the time.


Check wiring and connector going to the compressor. Check A/C relay contacts or try a different relay, check charge on system, as the compressor won't kick on without sufficient charge in the system and/or air in the system.

2001 XL7 Airconditioning is not working only air not cold.


Is your compressor kicking on? If it is not kicking on chances are that either your compressor is bad, you have a bad switch, or a blown fuse. Another thing to look into is whether or not your A/C unit is fully charged with 134a coolant. If your unit is not fully charged it will not blow out cold air. I hope this helps you out.

My 2006 impala blows air, but it is not cold at all. What could be the problem?


I would recommend that you raise the hood, locate the air conditioner compressor, turn on the ac in the car, and see if the compressor kicks on. If it does not, then you will need to have the ac charged. If it does kick on, then you need to pay attention to how it cycles, meaning kicking on/off, if it is frequently, then you need to charge it as well.

Check the charge in the system. Does the compressor kick on? Do the fans kick on?

Air conditioner blows hot air fully charged with


compressor or receiver/dryer or condensor may need to be replaced. Further testing will have to be done. Look into your sight glass and see if there is any bubbles in the glass, or if glass is extremely foggy. If so, you may have air in the system. Check to make sure you are getting power to the compressor.

Air conditioner doesn't run.


it is the low pressure switch trying to save the compressor. the system is low on refrigant. on this ford it should be R-134a all new cars are that refrigant.

1995 buick skylark air condition problem


If the system is not fully charged the compressor will not run. Check to see it the system uses 134a refrigerant for the cooling system. You can buy them in Walmart or other parts stores and try to charge it yourself. It will tell you under the hood by the systems tag how much refrigerant it takes.
