Hello,

Well, I can't tell by your explanation if the knob stem is broken & just spinning around or if it feels normal and nothing happens.

So, I guess I would first have you check all the fuses labeled "AC" or "Heater". Might be just a blown fuse, but remember, fuses always blow for a reason. There are many things that can be causing your problem like the heater/ac fan speed relay or a broken wire, etc.


I don't how auto repair savvy you are but, Google "Mazda 3 a/c panel". You will see many things on that first page like inexpensive replacement knobs, etc. There are even several YouTube videos on how to gain access to your ac/heater control panel. There is a wealth of information there. If you are not a do-it-yourselfer, you can at least look through there to educate yourself before you take your car to someone. Being informed ahead of time is very valuable.

Bestalucktoyou,
M

    For whatever reason, when you do that Google search, instead of using "a/c" use "ac". It will give you a few more choices. Go figure, huh. [;-)

I dont know how to turn off the air con in the car, there is no button or dial to turn off


You should have either a "snow flake " looking button that willl turn it on and off. The other style is all controls with air conditioning are in blue. All functions with air conditioning is not colored blue. You will have air conditioning on automatically if you run the defrost.

Dual Automatic Temperature Control Module Self-Test The DATC module self-test will retrieve on-demand (hard fault) DTCs only, it will not retrieve continuous DTCs. Continuous DTCs can be cleared when exiting the DATC module self-test. Make sure to retrieve continuous DTCs by carrying out the Dual Automatic Temperature Control Module — Retrieve Continuous DTCs procedure before clearing any continuous DTCs.
  • The DATC module self-test will not detect concerns associated with data link messages like engine coolant temperature or vehicle speed signals. A scan tool must be used to retrieve these concerns.
  • The DATC module self-test will detect concerns in the system control functions and will display on-demand (hard fault) DTCs for concerns that are present during the self-test. The vehicle interior temperature should be between 4°C - 38°C (40°F - 100°F) when performing the self-test. If the temperatures are not within the specified ranges, false DTCs may be displayed.
  • The self-test can be initiated after cycling the ignition switch from OFF to ON. Normal operation of the climate control system stops when the self-test is activated.
  • To enter the self-test press the OFF and FLOOR buttons simultaneously and release, then press the AUTO button within two seconds. The display will show a flashing blower icon for 20 seconds, after which all vacuum fluorescent segments will be displayed if there are no on-demand DTCs present. If DTCs are present the DATC module will display "00 00" and then on-demand DTCs. Record all DTCs displayed.
  • If any DTCs appear during the self-test, carry out the diagnostic procedure. Refer to the Dual Automatic Temperature Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code Index and follow the ACTION for each DTC given.
  • If a condition exists but no DTCs appear during the self-test, GO to Symptom Chart Condition: The DATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Incorrect Operation.
  • To exit the self-test and retain all continuous DTCs, press any button except DEFROST. The DATC module will exit the self-test and retain all continuous DTCs.
  • To exit the self-test and clear all continuous DTCs, press the DEFROST button. The DATC module will exit the self-test and all continuous DTCs will be cleared.
  • Always exit the self-test before powering the system down (system turned OFF). Once the self-test is exited the ignition switch must remain ON for at least 30 seconds to allow the temperature blend door actuators to automatically recalibrate.
  • Continuous DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition switch ON cycles after the intermittent fault occurs.

  • To retrieve continuous DTCs press the OFF and PANEL buttons simultaneously and release, then press the AUTO button within two seconds. All vacuum fluorescent segments will be displayed if there are no continuous DTCs present. Continuous DTCs are indicated by the presence of the degrees Celsius symbol (°C) on the DATC module display. Record all DTCs displayed.
  • If any DTCs appear, carry out the diagnostic procedure. Refer to the Dual Automatic Temperature Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code Index and follow the ACTION for each DTC given.
  • If a condition exists but no DTCs appear, GO to Symptom Chart Condition: The DATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Incorrect Operation.

Probably your compressor for the air suspension. You can put a 12 volt light bulb in the circuit in place of the fuse while you diagnose the problem.

Here's the circuit.

2b94f90.gif Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the vehicle owner's original concern by operating the vehicle to duplicate the condition.
  1. Inspect to determine if one of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    Mechanical Electrical
    • Shock absorber failure
    • Leak from air line(s)
    • Leak from air spring(s)
    • Ruptured air spring(s)
    • Height sensor damaged
    • Height sensor off ball studs
    · Open Fuses:
    • Town Car
      • Power Distribution Box Fuse U (30A MAXI)
      • Instrument Panel Fuse Panel Number 1 (15A)
    • Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis
      • Power Distribution Box Fuse AIR SUSPN PUMP (30A MAXI)
      • Instrument Panel Fuse Panel Number 1 (15A)
    • Loose Connectors
    • Corroded Connectors


You need a dealer tester for this check

AUTO TEST DIAGNOSTICS At the beginning of the automatic portion of the test, the control module checks for defective control module (DTC 70), for unstable battery voltage (DTC 80), then for shorted or open conditions that would create DTCs 39 through 46, and 68 through 71. If shorts or opens are detected, the automatic portion of the test is ended and a DTC 13 (Auto Test Failed) will be displayed on the SUPER STAR II tester. If no shorts or opens are detected, the automatic portion of the test continues. The control module attempts to raise and lower the vehicle to verify that all three air suspension height sensor states (trim, high, and low) can be reached. A properly functioning vehicle will be at trim height at the end of the Auto Test. If all three states are not reached, the Auto Test will end and again a DTC 13 will be displayed. A DTC 12 will be displayed at the end of the Auto Test only if everything checked to this point is functional. After the DTC 12 (or DTC 13) is displayed, the control module is ready to check for manual inputs. The manual inputs check the steering sensor and the door courtesy lamp switch circuits. During the manual test, the module continually monitors the door Circuit 159 or 24 and the steering sensor Circuits 633 and 634 Town Car, Circuits 834 and 835 Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis for activity. To pass the manual test the control module must detect that all four doors have been opened and closed, and that the steering wheel has been turned at least 1/4 turn in each direction. After the manual test, the STAR tester button must be toggled, or the control module will continue to monitor the manual test inputs indefinitely. Either a DTC 11 (Air Suspension OK) or other DTCs will be displayed at this time. After the Auto/Manual tests, the DTCs will be displayed automatically. Each DTC detected will be displayed for about 15 seconds. The code display will continue until all DTCs have been displayed. The display will repeat the DTC until the STAR test button is released (up). After all DTCs are written down, the pressed tester button may be released. DO NOT disconnect or turn OFF the tester. The tester is ready to enter the Functional Test.

Air conditioning blowing hot air


ok could be one of 3 things. 1 you may be out of freon. (proly spelt that wrong) 2. compresser could be bad. 3 the clutch on your compresser might not be engaging. when trucks running turn ac on and see if the front of your compresser spins or not. if it does clutch is good. but it could be that your compresser is still bad. either way i recomend you go for freon and start there. when they fill it they will tell you for sure wether or not your compresser is bad.

1st Thing,
Located Someone With a Set Of A/C Gauges 134A Freon,
Make Sure Your A/C System Has Enought Freon In It, There Is a Low Freon Pressure Switch
In The Electrical System, Usually, 50-60 PSIG or Less On The Gauges, Will Indicate Low Freon, When Freon Is Low The Compressor Is Dis-engaged To Prevent Compressor Damage.
1] Low Freon
2] Bad Low Pressure switch
3] Blowen Fuse[s]
4] Electrical Problem[s]
[a] Digital Climate Controlled ?
Climate Control Self Diagnose From Button's On Unit, OEM Manual Explains This,
If Yor Auto Has Digital Climate Control.
5] Bad Compressor DC Coil

Note: Does The Compressor Engage, Click-On When Button Is Pressed, But Getting
Only Warm Air?
Is One Of The Compressor Aluminum Tube's Cold, Be Careful Other Is Really Warm/Hot,
If Cold and or Sweating, Dripping Water [Normal], You Are Blending Hot Air w/Cold
Air At The Heater Blend Box, Making Warm Air.
If This Is So, If A Vaccum Controlled Temp Unit, Check For A Vaccum Hose Bad,
Should Be Either 1or 2 Vaccum Lines Going Into Firewall To Feed The Controller
Unit, If OK, Might Be a Bad Blend Box Diaphram, [Control's A/C air, Blocks Off
heater Coil Hot Air].
If Your Auto Is Vaccum Controlled, Can You Changed From Bottom, Dash,
Defrost Air Flow?, Yes, No Vaccum Lost Feeding Controller, Still Might Have
Bad Diaphram Blending Hot Air w/Cold If Your Have Cold Alum-Tubing In
engine Compartment.
If Digital Climate Controlled, Might have Diaphram's, Vaccum Controlled or
electrical Servo's Controlled vs Diaphram [Vaccum] Controlled.
This Might Help, Hopefully, This Is Just For Starter's, There More To Some System's
and Without The OEM Mgr's Manual[s] You/Be Would Be Lost, especially w/Electrical.
Later, God Bless
