Sounds like a low freon charge. Have the system checked for proper operating pressures by a professional

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Ac compressor won't kick on

Just had the same issue and posted. Just found the solution is the control module in the dash. Went to the junk yard since new is expensive on these units. Plugged new unit in, was able to charge a/c now blows cold as ice.

SOURCE: AC doesn't blow cold air, but refrigerant levels

The low side pressure seems ok the high side would help,Is your compressor cycling and is the air coming out even slightly cool?slight over charge cold effect cooling ability.I wish I could be more help. I will have to think about this one.maybe you could make sure your temp.door is actually in the commanded cold position.

Ac was working fine yesterday now compressor is not ingaging on. I recently had the freon filled. Any suggestions


Check your freon again. If its leaking once you get low on pressure the compressor wont kick in. If its not leaking you should check your Pressure Control Switch. If the PCS goes bad it will do the same thing. Good Luck. PS if you over charge your system it will also not work.

Does not blow cold at all?


You should hear compressor kick in when on AC, if not, time to have it diagnosed by mechanic.

98 accord ac not blowing at all


This is very vague. Is the blower motor working (can you hear blowing inside?), is it blowing but it's hot? Can you hear the compressor running (open your hood and listen if something is kicking on and off). AC is so complex. It could be as simple as a freon leak or as complex as a compressor, hose, accumulator etc.
