Where is the start relay on a 96 Geo prism I can find it


wont crank? Check fuses first? (USA answers)
use the scan tool and get P1500" starter signal dead?
which engine, 1.6L or 1.8L which trans, A/T or M/T (auto./stick)
did you try cranking in Neutral (guessing A/T)??
the relay with 2 white wires, it is.
the USA left drivers side fuse box. is WHERE it is.
if you hot wire the starter and it cranks its, ok the starter
if car cranks in Neutral the PRNDL switch is bad.
if the relay below has 12vdc on coil or 11v, cranking
voltmeter across coil and output contact is dead the relay is bad.
if no 12v across , that means bad key line (PNRLD) or bad ignition switch, (hot wired starter works, is base line 1st test)

Air conditioner most of the time blows hot air, espesially after car is hot. Also the RPM of the car dont go up when airconditioner on


keep all the doors of car open for 4/5 minutes before you start driving ,
this avoids hot air blown when ac started.

Also AC runs on battery & compressor takes heavy current while starting & running to ,this causes RPM to go down.
Also check with local automaker for battery capacity remaining.

Ac on 96 grand marquis continues to blow hot air with new compressor and freon?


The first question is do you know if the ac compressor is running ?
If one ac line is hot and the other is cold you may have a blend door problem under the dash.

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

you have moisture in the system this causes your expancion valve to freeze up an stop working, thats why it works for sort time and when it de-freezes stars working again. you need to do a EVAC & RECHARGE with a good AC service equipment, specially attention to pull vacumm por at least 20minutes so you get all moisture out of the system.
Good luck

Air only blows hot on 96 lincoln


Sounds like the heater and a/c blend door actuator. It is located under front center of dash below windshield. Dash must be removed to replace it. I've done it several times.
