Question about 1998 Toyota RAV4
My a/c works great while I am on the interstate but in traffic it blows out warm air and was causing my car to overheat. I replaced the thermostat but that did not do it. My car with or w/o a/c on still gets hot while in traffic. It does not sound like my fan to the engine is cutting on so my father suggested to change the fuse. Could this be the problem and if so where/ which fuse is it? I own a 98 Rav4.
Yes with airflow it work (on the interstate) but with no airflow to get rid of the A/C heat causes engine to overheat. Let's look at two possible things...first the A/C condenser fan by the radiator & then the A/C water temp switch.
Check the 30amp CDS FAN fuse (replace if blown) if it is OK then replace the the Fan#3 RELAY (which turns on the A/C condenser fan)...Then if needed replace Fan#2 RELAY (which can also control the A/C fan speed).
The Fan#2 relay can wear out and cause the type of problem your having
