I seriously doubt it's the compressor.. The system has high amd lo pressure systems that protect the compressor.. That's one thing to consider and the second is the positioning of the shutter doors that controll where the air goes.. Could be a simple adjustment.#2 can cause a #1 issue.

The air condition wont turn on. The windows dont work, and the spedometer doesnt work


This just happened to me yesterday. First, push the AC button to turn the AC off. Then, find the fuse pannel on the driver's side under the dash. Mine is behind the ash tray. Replace the 10 amp fuse (marked fuse #18 on my 1995 Camry manual) and the windows, spedo, tach, etc will come back on. My problem is the bearings on my AC clutch heated up a plastic piece between the AC clutch and AC compressor and the plastic piece blew up and sprayed hot plastic all around the AC compressor. The car runs, but no AC and if I push the AC button, the fuse blows again. I am planning to unbolt the compressor from the engine block, and replace the clutch assembly and pully without disconnecting the hoses. Disconnecting the hoses will vent coolant to the atmosphere and require professional equipment to clean the oil from the system, pull a vaccuum and recharge the system. The AC compressor clutch assembly is available at Advanced Auto for $98. The whole compressor is $247 but requires a lot of work to recharge. You could also take the clutch assembly or whole compressor off and just leave it off and get a shorter (40" in my case) belt to go just to the alternator.
Good Luck.

If you dual climate control sounds like it the mode door actuator that controls driver and passenger temp. If it went bad again then there is something wrong with the mode door itself causing the actuator to short out

I have a 2002 honda odyssey that the ac is not working. It blows hot air instead of cold.


Hello,

There are 4 main issues to the AC on a car (not including wiring or more advanced troubleshooting)

1 Recharge (Cheap do it your self Recharge kit from auto shop)

2 The belt that it drives it (Least expensive Replace Belt)

3 The clutch on the compressor (Expensive because you have to puge the system R/R the compressor check the evaporator for damge repressurize system and test.

4 The compressor went bad (Most expensive Usually when a compressor fails it will send metal shavings throughout the system that will cause the system to fail again the soulation is the same as 3 but now you need to replace the evaporator and flush all the AC lines out.

Air conditioner does not work


My wife 2003 Honda CRV did the same thing about 3 years ago with about 70k miles on the clock. Anyway, hot summer day, blowing hot air. I took the car to the dealership, they replaced the whole system under warranty even though the car was way past warranty period. Apparently, the AC system was defective, Honda will replace them on as-needed basis instead of recalling all of them. I was suprised they did all that for free. Try the dealership first. Good luck..

2001 S60 Air blowing hot


There may be a problem with the AC compressor pressure cycling switch, it turns the AC compressor on and off as required to maintain proper pressure in the system, it is located in the low side line (large AC line) under the hood, it will have 2 or 3 wires going to it.
