Climate control might be on the hot side. adjust to cool. if lcd is stuck for any reason, re-seating the fuse for the ac might reset and fix the problem.

When the ac is on the driver side vent blow only hot air and the passenger vent blow the cold ac air


Usually a sign of low freon or a blend door problem. If the system is full of freon, I would check the blend doors under the dash.

My lincoln mark lt pickup won't blow cool air


My lincoln had the same issue, first it was the A/C compressor (original). I replaced it with another one (used) and worked for 1 month. Then back to hot air. "A/C experts" told me the compressor was out again. I took it to a Mexican auto shop, old building where the guy works alone and to my surprise...HE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! There was no freon leaks, the lines were freezing cold inside the motor, checked freon>>full. He then checked the filter. This filter is on the end of the line where it is crimped that allows the freon to flow thru. Im no mechanic so explaining what it is, forgive me. I can only show you...the line is silver ad in front of you by the radiator, and its the same tube that goes to where you plug it to add freon. There is a filter that was clogged up and prevented the freon from flowing. He removed all the freon, vacuumed out the system/line, and replaced the filter for less that $3.00. Added freon and his cost was $80.00. Thank God for honest people who work hard for a living. I buy the parts, he replaces and I continue to give him my business. Other expensive auto shops with fancy buildings/prices My Lincoln Mark LT now blows arctic cold air!!!

You'll need to have someone check the circuit - could be a bad a/c clutch, relay, or short in the wiring.

A/C is blowing hot air. Freon is full, compressor


Not sure how you know if the freon is full without the unit running. There are a number of switches which can keep your A/C from coming on. There is a low pressure switch which is usually located on the larger line and sometimes located on a silver cannister (called an accumulator) which is the low side of a compressor circuit. There is also a high pressure cutout which is usually located on the back of the compressor unit. Both of these switches can be jumpered out to see if they are the reason for the compressor not working. You remove the two wire connector to either switch and place a small jumper wire between the two wires on the connector block. The other reason my be a low idle cutout switch and this will also usually be located near on on the compressor. You can also test it the same way as the other switches. If it is the low pressure switch then of course you will need to add freon which you can purchase from any auto parts store. They usually come with instructions and all the equipment needed to add in freon. If it is high pressure, then some of the freon should be recovered from the system by a technician. If is the low idle cutout then you will have to take it to a mechanic to understand why it is idling so low. Hope this helps.

Hi, my husband and i have a 2006 optima. te ac


Absolutely not!  Never attempt to recharge from the high side. Recharging from the high side is extremely dangerous and could do harm to both you and the car.  If the low side pressure is only 10psi, you are low on refrigerant.  Most cars require 20psi to operate the compressor and should never fill to more than 40-45psi unless recommended by the manufacturer.  I'd re-check the pressure readings.  It's possible that instead of charging the system, while hooking up the hose, you've let freon escape, accounting for the hissing noise and the low pressure reading.  When recharging the AC system, it's important to have the car running and have the AC on high.  It's possible, you didn't have a good connection to the low side which also would account for the escaping refrigerant.  I hope this answers your question.  I'd try to recharge the system again on the low side, making sure the connection is good both at the low side valve and on the can of refrigerant.  Best of luck.
