Question about 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
I had compressor and Accumalator as well as the small filter on firing wall replaced by people who called themselves mechanics. I bought a rebuilt compressor from auto zone as I am a disabled Priest with limited money. The mechanics told me they flushed the lines but I do not think so. They made me buy everything in advance such as freon and they asked for nothing to flush the lines. I do not even know what the lines are flushed with. I have the climatic control and the temperature light flashes for about 1 minute after turning the air conditioner on and the air blows semi cool maybe 70 degrees from the vents. Do you have any ideas? Thank you very much. Jerry Blackwell
They saw you coming from way off
try and find an accredited ac specialist that will do a diagnosis for you to tell you what is wrong
flushing is well and good but unnecessary and once the system has been opened , it requires to be vacuumed down for around 1 hour to allow the moisture in the system to boil off
if that is not done then when the liquid gas is allowed to evaporate in the evaporator under the dash , ice forms in the TX valve and it stops the system from working

take the upper radiator hose use a glove and while the car is running squeeze the hose together and see if trys to open in your hand and if it doesn't you have a weak water pump but check the condition of the drive belt and the coolant before you go to the pump

SOURCE: Air conditioner
replace the air conditioner relay, its located underneath the hood, you will see the relay center there, look underneath the cap to identify which is the ac relay switch.

SOURCE: blowing 20 amp fuse
Hi that fuse should be a 25 amp and it runs the blower, heater, the day time running lamps, automatic light control and the rear defogger you would have to check each unit at a time what I would do is put a hire fuse and look for smoke on the wiring as soon as iI see whats burning I take the fuse off but you have to be quick and pull out the fuse before any thing burns if not check each unit mention and look for good luck.

you may have a failed blend air door motor/actuator. this part will regulate the amount of air from the heater core depending on the temp setting on your electronic climate control unit. if it has failed, it will be stuck at the temp that it was last set at when it quit working. it is also possible the heater core may be plugged up, but using the gm recommended dexcool coolant and flushing it out every 5 years, it should not be plugged up. you can pull the 2 heater hoses off the heater core on the passenger side of the engine compartment firewall and see if the heater core is the problem. caution-do not use a high pressure air hose to blow through the heater core as this could damage it and cause a leak!
