My Honda Civic was broken into & my stereo was stolen. Now my air conditioner will not work. The fan blows and when I push the air button the light comes on but I cannot hear the compressor engaging. Any ideas what to check?

I have the same problem right now, and from what I can figure, it looks like an intermittent thermal protector switch on top of the AC compressor. My 2003 Civic air conditioning works fine for 20 minutes or so and then stops working. If this switch is faulty, the compressor clutch won't engage and you won`t get cold air. I will get it replaced soon, but it seems like the access is not easy.
Just take the car to you local Honda dealership and they will provide you with the code. And its free. You have to go in the dealership with the car. if you call them they won't do it. They need to know that you are the actual owner of the vehicle and not someone that has stolen the radio and is now trying to get it to work in a different car.
see for your service booklet when was the last time the vehicle service at Honda authorized workshop a vehicle needed to be checked & serviced time to time where the technician check the vehicle & let you know weather their is need to replace the spare parts or not if they are necessary they will be replaced & old spares are return to the customer it is better you take the vehicle to nearest authorized Honda workshop were the vehicle problem will be sorted.
ring honda with your car details they should have your code on file you may need to take it in as sometimes they dont give info out over the phone in case your cd player has been stolen hope this helps. triram
1. In your long drive, you may have set the a/c on "Max" or "recirculate" ... and set the fan on low. This can cause "freezing" the core inside the vehicle; this will create a lot of pressure in the compressor and the clutch will slip.
The "freeze" will cause the air to feel warmer; because the refrigerant is not circulating correctly.
2. Also, if there was oil or some other lubricant on the clutch, the clutch would slip, heat-up and fall apart.
3. The "fixed" a/c controls may have left the "vent" (non-circulating) control disconnected so that the inside core is unable to receive any "outside" warm air to keep the core from freezing... (possible)
cheapist way is too go to your local junk yard and get the items of a clunker? be sure you cut the harness to the radio ac etc so you can match up the wires ? remember you need to write down the seriel and model # off the junkyard radio so you can call the dealer and get the radio anti theft code its 5 digits like 25143 etc,, they have that info if you call the dealer
