Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Electrical Issue After adding r134 to the ac system i shut the car off. About an hour later, I started the car and the compressor would not engage. Also, the door locks, power windows and the defroster fan would not work as well. Changing the ac relay did not work. The local parts guy said the Intrepid has no fuse link, but it seems that power is lost to a large area of the car.

Check to see if you oversprayed on some of the electrical connectors, and also make sure you didn't overfill the system. If you overfill the system, the compressor will not engage. Third, make sure you check both fuse boxes.

Should the compressor engage before we start filling the R134? or during the filling? or do we potentially have a Hi/low pressure switch problem?


Did you vacuum the sys and make sure there is no leaks in the system. The compressor will kick in when you get the R134a at the operating level as the pressure sw on the dryer controls that.

AC compressor cuts in and out and won't stay engaged?


that means there is not enough pressure/refrigerant in the system. add a can of r134 and it may stop doing it

Ac does not engage


Most vehicles have a low pressure switch that prevents the compressor from engaging so as to prevent damage to the compressor. You need to place a gauge set onto your AC to read the high and low sides of the system. Probably have lost enough gas(R134) over time to prevent the compressor from engaging. You can jump the pressure switch to check it with a simple jumper wire.

2001gti vr6 ac not working. Blowing hot air. Is it posible bad module?


First check the ac fuse, if it is ok check to see if the clutch is turning when the ac switch is turned on. If clutch does not engage you should check the ac relay. It is usually located in the fuse box. You can switch places with it and another relay with the same number in the box. If compressor still doesn't run it may need to be charged with R134. If compressor runs for a few seconds and shuts off and continues doing this with control on high. It nees more refrigerant added.

Car gets hot whenever the AC is on, once turned of the temp starts to go down.


either the fan on the front isnt coming on when AC engaged or another reason could be its overcharged with R134 so when Ac is on the compressor is srtaining but you would notice engine slow down when AC engaged if this was the case .,If both first causes seem to be ok then take bottom hose off and flush cooling system using a heater hose connection and reverse the flow a few ,garden hos perfect for this ,then refill with a 50% antifreeze solution and see what happens

The air conditioner will blow air out but the air is not cold. What could be the problem?


Your system is low on refrigerant and needs to be checked for leaks and recharged with R134. If the system has sufficient refrigerant (base pressure of 70 - 90 lbs pressure checked with A/C gauges) then check to see if your a/c compressor clutch is engaging. If it is, then the compressor is bad. If the clutch is not engaging (you'll here it click when you turn on the a/c set to coldest setting), then you have a bad connection of the wire plug to the compressor, or a bad connection at the receiver/dryer.

Wife was sitting in the car idling with ac on. refrigerant blew


Yes the system could have been over filled. Or the pressure switch could have been stuck closed not allowing the compressor to kick off. Unless the AC relay had gotten stuck as well. Your best bet is to take it to a shop and have them check the switch and the system. You may have either blown a seal or a line.

Ac not cold replaced compressor


first the a/c system need to be put into a vacuum before you add r134. how much r134 does you system need? too much or too little will both get you warm air. does the compressor come on? air in the system will get you warm air too.

good luck

I have charger the air condition an sitt will not get cold


I am the original owner of a 1998 Ford Escort SE wagon. The summer of 2008 I had problems with my A/C system - the first A/C problem on this vehicle. Be careful that you do not over-charge your R134-A system.
1. Check that the A/C Compressor Clutch engages and drives the compressor properly (via the
serpentine drive belt and proper engine idling speed, A/C switched "on" etc.). If the A/C
compressor clutch doesn't engage and drive the compressor you will not be able to charge the
system to the correct refrigerant capacity and operating pressures.
2. You should be familiar with and have the proper tools to test & troubleshoot your auto's A/C
system. Test gauge(s), hose & connector's will be needed.

If the A/C compressor clutch does not engage the compressor, then you will need to troubleshoot the electrical system and components related to your auto's A/C system. This can be time consuming and requires more skill and information (accurate electrical schematics, etc.).

My problem:
1. A/C clutch didn't energize and engage.
2. System slightly low on R134-A, about a 7 oz. charge was needed after all was taken care of.

Solutions:
1. Electrical problem in the electronic controls for the A/C system. The "Contant Contol Relay
Module" (Ford part no. 3S4Z-12B577-BA, RELAY) had to be replaced. Sometimes Ford calls
this "black box" unit an "Integrated Control Relay Module". The location of this "black box" on my vehicle is under the engine intake air filter housing - replacement cost (new) is about $230;
(used) about $35.
2. Charged the required amount of R134-A into the system via the proper test gauge and related
equipment.
Please note: I have experience and training in mechanical (including refrigeration systems) and electrical systems.

AC compressor wouldn't kicking in; 2000 Ford Taurus


If your R 134 is low in your system then the AC compressor will not engage the clutch to run the compressor. Have your system check for charge level of the R134 first. If low they can add to system. All AC systems leak down over a period of time and need to be recharged. So, don't get worried that your system is bad. If the charge depletes itself again quickly then you have a leak somewhere in the system that needs to be addressed.
