SAAB 9000 1995 ACC Stops Working When Car gets Hot

SAAB 9000 1995 ACC so always on air con - works from cold but cuts outwhen in jams, hot running. The compressor clutch is not getting powerwhen the car is hot/in this fault condition. Just sits there disengaged instead of cycling as normal.

Seems to come back on when it gets a run to coolthe engine/condenser.

Compressor seems good when it works,gets me cool when its 90 outside, as it is right now. Have changedrelay. Ideas please? Brian Catt

Do you hear condenser fan when turning the AC on? If you press gas pedal a little bit, does the AC turn back on? Try maybe adjusting idle to factory spec and check if fan is working. It can also be low on refrigerant.

SAAB manuals recommend replacing the chain if the chain tensioner is extended more than 11mm.

SOURCE: Radiator fan doesn't always turn on when engine gets hot

check fuses #25 and #6 (both 30 amp)
the fan thermostat is on the left side of the rad.
turn the ignition on, and after pulling back the boot, short across the two terminal with a screwdriver.

if the fan runs, fan and wiring are both good.

if it only runs when thermoswitch is shorted like this, switch needs to be replaced (get the low temp switch to prevent overheating - your temp gauge will not go over the middle position even on the hottest days; also get a low temp thermostat,and ALWAYS get a Saab stat, not an after market!)

if the fan doesn't run when switch is shorted, check for valtage between green wire and ground at the switch.

Voltage indicates faulty fan, if no voltage then check the fan relay J in the main fuse box.

You didn't say if it's blowing any air at all.First check that the thermostat is of the correct temp. and is installed correctly.If you are getting cold air and not losing any coolant the your flapper valve is either stuck or broken.You'll need to simply remove the aquarium cover and look to the left rear of the blower motor.You will see the plastic flapper arm which is connected to a wirewound hook.If the hook is off the flapper just reattach it.If the tip of the arm is broken you can push the arm towards the rear of the car and wedge it in place with anything that will hold it.Doing this will give you heat until you replace the flapper valve arm.The arm can be fixed without removing the blower motor.Don't be ripped off by letting some mechanics tell you that they have to remove the blower to fix the arm.They will charge several hundred dollars and take hours to do so.

It's the small radiator situated just in front of the engine's radiator - it might be clogged up with dirt.

My Renault logan only blow cold air


So the AC is working, but when you select hot air, it doesn't work? Does cold air come out when you select hot air, or does no air come out? Please provide as many details as you can. What year is the car?

Perhaps the dial to select hot or cold air is not working. Does the dial feel the same as it always has, or has there been a change recently?

Is the engine warm when you try to select hot air? If the car hasn't been running a while you won't get hot air.

OK, most cars have heater cores that get hot but the blender door directs air away from this core in the a/c mode when you want cool air from the evaporator.

I'm not sure if there is a control valve which stops the water from going through the heater valve.

I think the part is called a 'heater blend door actuator' that you are after.

1998 Town Car A/C Blows Hot Air But Is Charged Up


Hi - There may be 2 separate problems. On my 1991 Lincoln Town Car, there is a Thermal Blower Lockout sensor that disables the heater from blowing until the engine temperature reaches a specific temperature. This way if you have vent or floor settings and 90 degrees set and it is winter, you won't get blasted with cold air. When the vehicle warms up, the TBL circuit enables the climate control to blow the hot air. If you use the flr/def instead of the floor or vent control, the TBL should not prevent the heater from working even with a cold engine. On my car, the TBL went bad and always prevented hot air from blowing on the floor and vent settings, even when the engine was hot. Another thing to check is a thermal limitor resistor. It is designed to cut off the blower at very hot temperatures, except if the blower fan is in the hi setting.

As far as the A/C is concerned, can you verify if the clutch is engaging or not? A rapid cycling of the clutch is an indication of low freon. If you are absolutely sure that you are fully charged on freon, I think there are 2 possible causes: (1) Bad pressure switch on the accumulator is indicating low freon that is telling the compressor not to work; (2) a blocked orifice tube.

Audi A3 Air Con Cut out


Happened to me too, when the ECO light comes on automaticly (and it only blows hot air) it means it's simply broke.

I don't know the exact production date of your car, but there is/was an airco-related dealer recall for some cars, so just contact your dealer and have it fixed, but don't forget to mention the recall (it might save you a lot of money when your warranty has already expired).

Hot air forced into cabin while driving 92 saab 900


the air distribution switch controls the air distribution and the fan, distribution switch in the 0 (straight down position) will be off. Car movement forces air into teh body, but with teh fan off there will be no air when the car stops. Does the fan run when the distribution switch is in any other position? it should respond to the speed settings of the fan switch.

There is a vacuum bottle accumulator that assists the distribution switch, sometimes this gets disconnected and the switch settings don't work.

Do you hear any noises if you turn the distribution knob while the car is running? suction noises, or flaps opening?

If not, then you likely have a vacuum problem (check for a white bottle in left front wheel housing, except convertible -> under the spare wheel, tank should have one or two vacuum lines connected to it (one for convertible). A disconnected or leaky line is the most likely cause.

Possible other causes are faulty air distribution switch; burned out fan motor; inoperative vacuum solenoid motors controlling air distribution flaps.

But check the vacuum accumulator first, if under the spare wheel, the lines are easily dislodged.
