The pressure/ temp switch on the reciever drier is what the system uses to determine if the system has enough freon. Most likley cause assuming system is properly charged. You can pull actual values through the a/c push button module. If you cannot see an erratic value your best bet is to have the system scanned for codes.

Why does tire light stay on 2011 Toyota?


Reset the Tire pressure monitoring system light. The reset button is located under the steering side under the finish panel. You have to bend down to see the button.
Operate the tire pressure warning system reset switch only after the inflation pressures of all 4 tires have been adjusted on the vehicle.
To initialize the system, press and hold the tire pressure warning system reset switch for 3 seconds or longer with the power switch turned IG-ON

I cant start my toyota avalon 2006 limited with the remote


stock?
system?


or'
quote
yes, press...press...hold the lock button should work with starting the car. Make sure the remote has fresh batteries and hold the button down for a few seconds as well. When you are doing this, do the signal lights flash when you hold the button down? (They should be) I would still recommend you stop by a local Toyota dealer and ask for help. Guys like me (Toyota salespeople) love to help out with things like this. Just remember, press press hold for a few seconds...dont press too slowly. The two press should be done in less then 2 seconds...then hold for at least 3-4 seconds on the 3rd press...good luck!

I have a 1992 mercedes 200 E WDB 021 Saloon, it has 8 button air condition and I dont know how to use it. Control wheel on blue position but When I push the button (leftmost)which has a glass figure on it,...


The pulley on the air condition has to turn it has a belt on it. The Compressor engages to pre cool the evaporator. Most likely you have a blend door pod leak or leak in the hose or the sampler valve is bad. I would replace the sampling valve behind the glove box/air bag. As that reads the cabin temp and if it thinks the car is cold the heat will stay on because everything is automatic. All vents will blow cold when it thinks its hot and in addition to floor and corner dash center vents will blow cold when it works. If the direction of air is correct then the A/C system may have a leak or need a charge of freon.

What does the red light on the bord with letters SRS means? It stays on for few seconds after I start the car (Honda accord 1995). Thank you


srs means secondary restraint system. e.g air bags and things like that. when it stays on for a few seconds its because it is doing a systems check. if the light stays on all the time then there is a problem. hope i helped.

Kia rio air conditioning light?


The manual instructions are basically:

Turn the fan to 0 (off, far left).
Turn the air control to full defrost (far right).
Press the recirculation button at least 5 times within 3 seconds.

If you've done it right, the recirculation button light will flash a few times at about 1/2 second intervals.

I've tried it on mine and this works.
