E300D Mer. a/c compressor doesn't energize

AC was working fine. The day this happened I washed the motor/engine good. Would this make a difference

    Washing any engine on any car made after about 1979 is not a good idea...The more electronics the more chance of something malfunctioning...wouldn't wash out the insides of your TV would you?

Can I repair or rebuild a locked up ac compressor pump or do I have to buy another ac compressor 2006 Impala 3.9 V-6?


I don't know if my air condition services were cheating me but I had twice problem with the compressor and after two different checkups both time they told me I had to install a new compressor. and that repairing it was not a good idea.

Air condition and heat know not working


You need to ensure the engine is running when you are testing the AC or heating systems, as they rely upon a compressor to work the heat pump.

If your engine is on when you are testing this and no different temp air comes out, you should ensure your AC system is properly charged with coolant and that the compressor is engaging and functioning. If not, it will need to be replaced.

I'm getting an intermittent loud flapping sound when the AC is turned on my 2009 Smart ForTwo


Question. Is the flapping at a very fast pace that would indicate the speed of a fan blade hitting something? If so, you may be on to something there such as a misplaced gasket or something has dropped/fallen into the blower box via a vent.

If it is not that speed then see the following..

Hope I can give you some direction. Speaking from a generic sense all ac/heaters these days have a door or doors in the blower box that control air flow from the main part of the box to different positions when you ask for vent, heater, mix, defrost etc..

Most these days are operated with a small electric servo/motor and unfortunately the mostly have plastic gears that wear and can "thump-thump" as the motor cycles trying to open or close the flapper door.

Try to change the air direction from Max AC to regular ac to heater, defroster, bi-level etc all with the AC switch in the on position if you have a separate on/off switch.

Listen to the sound and see if it comes and goes with a different location of the selector switch.

One last question. Does it happen at idle or driving down the road at any particular speed?

Lets start with that and see what happens. This is interesting.

Good luck!

Ac intermittently quits working, just replaced condenser, put dye in system at mechanics- no leaks


Have an AC repair shop hook up a set of AC pressure gauges while this is happening to see what is going on. You could have a defective AC compressor or a low refrigerant charge in the system. And as to the hot weather causing it to act up that would be normal, the AC would cool fine the cooler the outside air is, problems like worn out compressors and low system refrigerant charge levels would only show there ugly head in hot weather conditions. Also make sure the cooling fans fo rthe AC and engine are working properly. Good luck with this.

The last few years I've experienced problems with


First try replacing the Relay for the system. If that doesnt work check/replace the pressure and temp switch on the drier. The 124 body style have issues with A/C overall so dont be too frustrated. Also in the short term try turning the temp wheel to max cold (blue dot) and restarting the car. Sometimes it will force the relay and compressor to lock on while driving. Also be aware if your Aux Electric fans dont come on the system doesnt get cooled properly and will not stay on.
Good Luck.

The ac compressor runs and cools properly when temp is cool,but on warmer days it will run then kick out and will not kick back in for several hours later.All pressures are good...the freon charge is...


What year is the vehicle ? The A/C button on the control panel is a direct input to the PCM /ECM - engine computer . The PCM/ECM energizes the compressor clutch relay to engage the compressor .

Secondary fan ac motor doesn't work


That fan comes on with the a/c compressor to assist cooling while a/c is in use....diagnostics must be performed with a/c on for that fan to be energized...start at the relay in the underhood fuse/relay box and check for 12 volts to fan when a/c compressor clutch is energized
