Question about 2004 Honda Accord

3 Answers

The AC in my 2004 Honda Accord only blows cool air when I am driving at higher speeds. When I drive slow or am stopped, it's warm hair coming out. My mechanic said the compressor isn't working properly and as a result, the condensor also needs to be replaced. Is this a common problem with 2004 Accords? My car is only 5 years old and this seems VERY premature

Both Devildog and Rob are correct. Check to see if your fan is running first, that could be it... if it does cycle on and off, then go with what your mechanic said.

If you have a fan for your condensor and a fan for your radiator,it sounds like the condensor fan is not working.With your car in park,turn on your a/c and lift your hood to see if the condensor fan is running.If it is not ,you possibly have a bad condensor fan motor.Make sure you also check the fuse for the condensor fan.

It is a premature failure, That does indicate a bad/failiing compressor, or low oil charge, to low freon. If you trust the mechanic then go witht he compressor replacement and condensor. Unfortunately most oarts stores/shops require the condesor to be replaced for warranty purposes on compressor replacements.

When I am driving my ac works excellent, when I stop or idle it gets warm, freon is full, any idea's?


What type of car? If it is older and uses vacuum for blend door operation, you may have a vacuum issue. Engine vacuum is low at higher speeds and vacuum is high at idle. If there is a check valve incorporated in the system it may be bad causing improper blend door operation. Also make sure the cooling fan comes on during AC operation and the condensor is not obstructed causing lack of airflow across the fins. You will get more airflow at higher speeds whichwill help in the cooling and make it colder while driving

When the AC compressor runs the engine slows down and runs erract


I would check your thermostat. Even replace it if its not that expensive. Hopefully its not a heater core. Good Luck..

Same Problem, warm air at low RPM's 2006 Saturn Vue


I agree with philip, i have not studied the electrical system. but to my best guess the electric fans are tied into the engine cooling system. when the engine is not requesting the fans to come on. then their is very little air passing threw the cooling package. When their is no cool air passing by the condenser this will not draw the heat out of the refrigerant leaving excess heat in the system and when the cab fan blows this is were the excess heat is getting dumped. then at higher speeds their is enough air passing threw the condenser and radiator to cool them both.
