Question about Volkswagen Jetta

Open Question

I have a Jetta 4 model 2004. The air con pump works when you put direct power from the battery to the aircon. When I put on the switch on the dashboard the console burns out.

SOURCE: Air con not working in 93 corolla seca.

Hello. Thnaks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

The A/C compressor will not engage (get power) if there is not sufficient freon in the system. There is a pressure switch that opens, and eliminates power to the compressor (pump) if there is not enough freon (which creates pressure), to close the switch and allow the current to flow to the compressor. Check for leaks at the condenser (in front of the radiator).
That is the most common place for leakage to occur.

The graciousness of a FIxYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thnanks in advance.

SOURCE: switch on dash won't change direction of air to vent, etc.

You have a vacuum leak,defrost is the default postion,no vacuum to controls. Check the small black vacuum line that goes thru the firewall on the passenger side of the firewall and trace it back to see if you can locate a leak. It will go to a vacuum resivior then to the intake manifold.

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus heater switch

I have just managed to fix the blower in my 2004 Ford Focus. Only worked on number 4 which cuts out the AC. Garage quoted me £40 for part and £40 for labour. I brought a second hand resistor from these people (very helpful and only £10 plus VAT) http://www.breakeryard.com/view_supplier_feed...

. Arrived next day. To replace the old one you just remove the 3 screws under the glove box and pull the box out. In front of you will be a big barrel which is the fan. To the bottom right of this you will see the old resistor. This is held in by one screw. Remove this and pull out the fixed wires. Put in the new part, re attach the wires and put the screw back. Job done. Should take about 15mins.
Hope this helps somebody somewhere

SOURCE: air flowing thru front vents

I just changed my battery as well in my 04 Envoy XUV and the air on the passenger side would not blow. The air has since returned after I restarted but the flow on the bottom has been out for some time even before the battery change.

Fault code P2106


is it the ecotec engine fitted 1.8 or 2.0./2.2l or the diesel 1.7 engine.. how long have you not used the air con for. not using it for a long time you can damage the pump the flown sensor. even the temperature sensor. but if the engine is trying to stall with the ac on then the pump may have a fault. ac should be run for 10min once a week no matter the weather. stops you having problems later.

My 2005 Audi A4 engine have idling problem when aircon is on


Sounds like the compressor is failing or seized (for the air con). This would put extra pressure on the system. It could be another fault with the air con system like the solenoids not opening up to allow the flow of gas in the system.

WHY DOES MY RADIATOR FAN COMES ON ONLY WHEN MY AC IS ON ON MY 88 TOYOTA COROLLA


Hi,
it is generally because the air con heat exchanger has to be cooled in order for your air con to work correctly and cool the interior of your car.


The air conditioning utilises a gas by the name of freon. This gas is pumped around the air con system by a compressor. The gas, going through the aircon cooler or heat exchanger, starts to cool down. Depending on the system layout, the gas is forced through a very small aperture situated after the cooler. It reverts to a liquid, passes through the matrix in the car, a fan blows the interior air of the car through the matrix. The fluid picks up the heat, and cooler air exits the matrix and, (hopefully) cools the interior of the car. This endless cycle is repeated as long as the air con is powered on.

Hope this brief description will suffice.

Engine keep turning off


It could be a part called the Idle control Valve. It regulates the Idle speed and keeps it smooth. If it is choked up with carbon gum or the little motor inside it is faulty then it will not allow enough air too pass for smooth idle. When you put your air con on the engine is under more load because it has too turn the aircon pump so it will stall. Also you have a little device on aircon cars that raise the idle a little to compensate for the extra aircon load. If this is not working it could be that.

A cheap and nasty way to make it work is to by pass pressure switch in the engine bay,your aircon has shut itself down to protect itself.the switch thats responsible for that is either on the air con compressor with two wires plugged into it or close to the reciever/drier, join the wires together and the air con switch and associated parts will work again.This is a short term fix as the switch is there to tell you that the aircon pressure is too low and ultimately it will need recharging.

Di he put a tracer dye,usualy green,in when he recharged the aircon?It will usualy show a leak pretty quick,You may have a pressure safety switch thats faulty,usualy screwed into the aircon pump on the high pressure side and if it senses a low pressure problem it shuts the air con down to protect itself.It will have two wires running to it and joining the two wires will reactivate the aircon.Not advisable to leave wired up in this way as the air con charge also lubricates the pump and running it dry will require pump replacement if left running too long.Cant help with air con specialist as im in australia Good luck

No air


You may have to get aircon recharged as pressure regulator switch on aircon pump is not allowing use of pump to protect itself.easy test is to take the two wires off the switch and join them if the air con pump works you will need to recharge.Do not leave hooked up as pump will eventualy sieze.
