Question about 2004 Honda Accord
Getting ready for a trip. while turning car around to load, turned the a/c blower off and when I turned it back on it wouldnt work a/c compressor still engages, checked fuses, were fine. could this be a repair without dealer assistance
If the blower works but its just not blowing cold air, its possible to recharge the AC system yourself. Most auto parts stores carry AC recharge kits. Instructions to recharge the AC are belowl
RECHARGING AC SYSTEM
1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
Best of luck and enjoy your vacation.
Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

As an aside: the recharge kit can be had with a pressure gauge for a few dollars more and comes with adequate instructions on what the appropriate pressures are. Works like a charm even for casual 'experts' like me (and you.)
