Question about 2003 Honda Civic
Hi Traci. Like Keith said, a freon leak can cause the problem. If you have corrected this, there are a few other options to looks at.
-Is the A/C compressor clutch engaging? (If not, the A/C clutch, the A/C clutch relay, low pressure switch, or the A/C dashboard switch could be faulty.)
-If the A/C compressor is engaging, you need a pressure gauge set to determine if the compressor is building pressure. Also, there is an expansion valve that can fail as well. This is the part that regulates freon flow and keeps the high pressure and low pressure sides separated.
I hope this helps. Unfortunately A/C systems have more than just a few parts.
