    yes....it had a leaking valve..which replaced and leak checked after charge..but the vehichle has been vandalized.... and compleated interior was removed including radio, A/C HEAT CONTROLS, dash bezel etc.. all has been replaced now, including controls.....the a/c works if it is connected directly to 12volt source from under dash relay

    just because the AC was charged doesn't mean it doesn't have a low charge again, was the leak fixed from previous repair?

If the compressor won't engage, the system can't be properly charged, because you can't see what the system pressures are. who ever charged it doesn't know what they are doing, so take it to a shop that can check pressures.

I have a 2002 pt cruiser that is blowing the ac 10amp fuse repeatedly. I mean within minutes of changing it. Also the ac is only blowing hot air. Can someone please help.


An AC system blowing hot air is usually due to a low freon charge or a non operational AC compressor. If the fuse blows, disconnect the compressor electrical plug and turn on the AC. If the fuse doesn't blow, suspect a compressor problem. If the fuse continues to blow with the compressor disconnected, there is a direct short between the ON/OFF switch and the compressor which can take hours to diagnose

Make sure the compressor is turning - check out the compressor clutch for operation. Also check the operation of the thermostat which turns on/off the clutch.

Sure the freon is in there? If you have a nasty leak it will come out as fast as you put it in. Also check the low pressure shut off valve. If stuck in the open position the clutch will not activate the compressor.

A/c dosen't always come on the it blows hot air. worked on the way to work would not work on the way home


Check the AC line if it is gets cold when AC is on, if it doesnt that may mean there is a problem with the compressor or out of gas due to leakage. Also check if there is an electrical connection problem.

Good luck, summer with no AC really becomes annoying.

Air conditioning blows hot and cold air


You will need to know if the compressor is working when it blows hot air to proceed. It could be an electrical problem, a blend door problem, or the a/c clutch on the compressor.

Heater dosen,t work


you might have a problem with your heater core ,also check your radiator and make sure it is full if you are low on water that will also cause cold air to blow or your actuator witch is a control switch that opens the vale to let hot water pass through giving you hot air good luck

1992 Dodge Dakota 2wd 3.9L V6 Air conditioning/Heater dosent blow? when i turn the air or the heat on i can hear the compressor kick on but it dosen't blow cold or hot? any help would be appreciated


Roger it sounds like the blower motor is not comming on. There is a resistor network located in the engine compartment on the passenger side mounted to the firewall, that controlls the blower motor. The connections may have corroted or the unit itself is bad. That was the first thing I had to relpace when I got my used 92 Dakota. There is also a 30 amp fuse in the fuse box under the dash board . If that is blown I would suspect the blower motor is seized up or just pulling too much power.

2009 galant, added coolant.. still blowing hot air


Hi, there are several reasons your vehicle may be blowing hot air through the vents, such as a need to recharge refrigerant. There could also be a problem with the air conditioner's compressor. Vents will blow hot air if the compressor does not activate when the A/C is turned on. There may be an obstruction in the system, or the blend air door inside the HVAC unit may be stuck in the HEAT position so no air goes through the A/C evaporator.

Air conditioner not blowing cold air. We put coolant with gauge reading 25 lbs pressure. We think the compressor is coming on. The pipe coming out of the compressor is cool but, the air coming into the car...


Is the air actually blowing into the car?But it's just hot?It sounds like your blower motor is not turning to blow air.you have a fuse,check the switch that controls the blower,and the blower motor it self.

Ac blows hot air ac compressor is ice cold but the vents blow hot air when enige is hot. bloows cold air when engine is cold


check your air diverter doors, sounds like the door for heat is open, when a/c is selected the doors should move and close the heater off. the heater will over power the a/c. the door controller is located on the environmental station under the dash neat to the floor. the control is electronic and probably not functioning
