Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer. Air conditioner malfunction.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer. Recently, air conditioner seems to shut itself down, particularly after long idle or slow traffic. Dealer checked compressor, coolant pressure, belts, fans - all OK. Very cold cooling when working, but stops working irregularly. Always okay again after lengthy engine shutdown.

    Took the car back to the dealer (I am not mechanical at all), and gave them your suggestion in print. They returned the car to me with no solution to the a/c problem, just a comment that they could try something for $500+ to see if it might work. No idea if they checked the sensor your suggested. Any more ideas?

If your compressor is not starting regularly: sometimes when the A/C is set to the "eco" position andit is not very "warm" outside the compressor won't kick in right away ... if at all. The easy work-around is to toggle the switch to the snowflake setting, causing the compressor to run constantly. I've
noticed this problem when the outside temp. is roughly 60-70 degrees and
sunny, making the *inside* temp. just warm enough for you to want the
A/C on. But when it's hot outside (say about 80 and up), I really can't
tell a difference between the two A/C modes.

    Otherwise get an ecu from the junkyard and replace it. Also try shorting out the
    pressure sensor with a jumper wire- it sits on top of the evac/drier.
    If the compressor comes on, replace it.

The compressor is overheating,Have them check to make sure the fan relay is not turning the fan off prematurely,Just because the fan comes on,doesn't mean it stays on as long as it needs to.

2002 lancer air cond serviced recently and now the compressor wont kick in


The compressor is designed not to kick in unless there is enough coolant in the system. If the air conditioner is low on coolant it will not run when the AC is turned on. If it was serviced but not sealed up correctly , the coolant may have leaked out. You will have to stop the leak and recharge it for the compressor to kick in.
Also be sure to double check the fuses on the car. Flat fuses and block fuses just in case a system was accidentally shorted.

My Lancer 2002 A/C stop working after a few minutes and gives a hot air then it turns on automaticly and so on Thank you


When was the last time you recharged the system? if it was recently, then it may be over pressurized and it shuts down to avoid damage to the compressor. If you haven't done it in a while, you might need to recharge it.
