A/C Works Intermittently 2000 Chevy Blazer

I have a very similar problem in my 2000 Chevy Blazer 2x4. My A/C works intermittently, but most of the time is does not work at all. I went through a period where it worked all the time and now it is not working all the time. I had the freon level checked and it is fine. A faulty pressure sensor/switch seems likely cause as was mentioned in the response. Anyone have any ideas of how I can avoid the shop ripping me off?

Thanks.

Disconnect your high pressure switch when the compressor is not engaging and stick a paper clip in the wiring harness.. thus jumping both sides of the wires.. If the compressor engages then you know its a faulty pressure swicth.

You can buy the a/c pressure switch and replace it your self. It's located on the accumulator (air dryer) un-clip the wire harness and remove the switch and be ready with the new switch to replace, it's like replacing a oil sensor. Your not going to loose that much R134a, just have the new switch ready to place in the accumulator. Once placed if you have the gauges for the a/c, the low side should be 30psi to 50psi and the high side should be 150psi to 200psi with the a/c on the highest level. Any other readings will give you poor a/c performance. Good luck and keep me posted.

2000 blazer , every once in a while it wont start... let sit sometimes 30 minutes sometimes 2 days and it starts. Put external fuel pressure gauge on... B4, when key on... gauge shows over 60 lbs. when it...


Hi:
The fuel pumps on the Chevy blazer and their full sized trucks are prone to failing, as I had to change mine on my 1996, and yours is the same model .
Ours started off intermittently dieing, then failed all together. If you have matched up the fact that you have no fuel pressure when your blazer won't start, then the fuel pump is the most likely suspect. As you know, they are not cheap, and the fuel tank is not difficult to remove, but needs to be close to empty to make the job managable. The tank is over 3 feet long, and is better removed with 2 people if you can find help.

Air Conditioner works intermittently


It could be your low pressure cycle switch is going bad. Check the connection to the switch and it's is located on the A/C Accumulator. The other thing to check is the A/C relay and that is located in the glove box. There is a panel in the glove box that say's relay, there is three relays in there and one of the out side relay's out of the three is the A/C. can not remember which one it is. The middle relay is the fuel pump and the other one is the third break light. Switch the two out side relays and see if your A/C get's better. the other thing too is if the R134a is just a little low, and needs to be topped off. Good luck and hope this helps. if your going to try to recharge the A/C system your self, keep in mind not to over charge.
