2006 Odyssey, A/C blows warm air when sitting still and idling

Works fine when I'm moving. Most likey a coolign fan is not coming on - where are the fuses for the radiator fans (?) or is there a specific fan for the A/C cooling coils? Looked at the ones in teh driver side wheel well, didn't see one that looked like it carried current to a cooing fan. Don't have a lot of tiem before i go on vacation to spend under the hood, much less take it in to the dealer..

What controls the radiator cooling fans in the ac mode on a pontiac torrent 2006


Well the computer activates the relay for the fans when needed.
You should be able to jumper the relay to check the fan operation.
The fans come on when the ac pressure reaches 200psi or so, not as soon as you turn the ac on.

Car blows warm air when idling


It sounds like your AC unit could be overheating or even damaged.

AC units have a sensor that will turn them off automatically to prevent damage from overheating. If there is an insufficient amount of air flow, the unit will heat up, and then eventually turn off.

When the car is moving, more air is forced over the unit, likely keeping it cool enough to run, however, when the car come to a stop, it loses that air flow, and quickly heats up. Thus, the AC would work while the vehicle is in motion, and overheat and stop when the car is stopped and idling.

However, the AC unit could be completely blown. The cold air while moving could be just a case of air being forced into the car. Think of a house fan, the fast the wind blows on you, the cooler it gets.... Thus, it could be an illusion that the AC is working when car is in motion, when it really isn't.

Hope this helps.

When the car is idling, the heater blows out cool air but when the car is moving, the heater works fine


When the coolant in the heater core is hot from the engine and your fan is on hot air will blow through the hot fan coil, i figured it out, when i stepped on the gas i could here the coolant squeezing by the control or limiter valve, because the higher rpms make the belt spin faster which makes the water pump pump harder causing more pressure, so when u idle that hot coolant will cool down from the fan blowing on it, u need to find the control valve and open it up to full blast, then hot coolant will always be flowing through your heater coil. ;)

While driving my 2006 torrent the ac works fine but when i come to a stop or idle it blows hot.


the condenser cooling fan(s) are not working. Usually, it will be a fuse, the relay, or a bad fan motor itself. It cools while your car is moving due to ram air flow through the condenser....

My AC only works when the car is in motion. It blows warm air otherwise.


Sound like maybe your a/c condensor fan is not working, should come on with a/c on, the fan sit in front or back of radiator, condensor is bolted to the front of the radiator, if its not working at stops no air blows through condensor and pressure will get high and a/c wont blow cold, while driving air is running through condersor so a/c will work fine.

My 1999 Tahoe's air cond gets warm when you idle. Is there a fan or something that should be blowing when sitting still?


the electric fan should switch on at a stop at idle for the condensor to disapate the heat. If the fan doesnt come on not enough air flow will keep the system hot. A low freon level will compound this issue.

1999 odyssey blows some cold air when moving


It could be a number of things. Check to see if the clutch is turning on the compressor. If it keeps turning on and off (cycling) it is low on freon. Is the condenser clean and free of bugs and road debris? Is the radiator fan coming on? If not that could explain why it is cold while driving, but hot while idling. Most all vehicles will blow colder on the AC when driving down the road because you are getting cooler air through the condenser. Hooking up a set of gauges to the vehicle will tell you best what is going on. Basic rule of thumb is: low side should be in the 30-40 lb range while running and the high side should be around 100 lbs higher than the ambient air temperature. Anything drastically different means you have a problem.

Nissan 2000 ac hot when idle


the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
