A/c not working 03 vw jetta

I checked my a/c charge and it was fine. heat is always coming out of vent even when it's not calling for it, and when i putting into a/c it blows out hot air. the compressor also condensates. it seems like the fan control is stuck on heat. any clues were to start?

I believe you are correct. The cable running from the thermostat control knob to the vent lever can disenguage from the vent assembly. You can remove the plastic side panels below the radio/heater housing to see the cables. Move the heat/cool knob back and forth to locate the correct cable and see if it has fallen out of the vent assembly.

have you tried at all to reset the program of the automatic transmission ? Always remember that even a simple connector been removed for second and re connected always needs adaptation before starting the car VW. Try to do the automatic transmission with adaptation.

Did you install the thermostat backwards? It could be air bound.jack the car up on the side the radiator cap is on and run it to try to purg out air.your new thermostat could be bad. Remove it completely and see what happens.as for fan not working check connections and relay.if it has air conditioning that works turn it on and the fans should come on.if not there is either no power or bad fan motor.check with a test light for power at fan motor connection.

With the symptoms you describe, coolant is not circulating through the system. Your first move to replace the thermostat was good. My next move would be to replace the water pump. Good luck.

2003 VW Jetta 1.8T Temp Guage/False Overheating Issue


your car is cooking!!!! if your heater starts to blow cold air its got an air lock in the system and need to be blead out to get this air out of the water jaket in the engine sounds like your gauge is working fine to me, its screeming at you to stop! as its over heating the engine, look under your hood for the water hoses you should find a hose with a kind of nut or screw in it at the higest point on a water hose, this is the bleed point, fill the rad up with water and turn on the heater to hot only do this when the engine is COLD undo this screw or nut start the engine up and watch the water flow out this bleed point till there is no more air coming out with the water, keep the rad full of water and you dont need to put the rad cap back on till the air has been bled out but keep the rad full of water all the time after all the air is out refill the rad or top it up put the cap back on and run the motor it should not show as hot as it was and the heater should work just fine

I have an 03 Jetta the center right vent all the sudden is not blowing air the others work fine, any ideas? thanks


sounds like a bad air vent actuator. I would take it to a service center for proper diagnosis, as it could be vacuum lines also.

Searching

forums.vwvortex.com may give you hints on replacing/repairing the actuators.

Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.

2003 VW Jetta Charging problem


problem is that the voltage regulators on the 1.8t which I am sure is the same on the TDI alternator....is that they may work fine when they are cold....but once they warm up is when they start acting up and causing problems. I assume is has to do with some resistor over heating. This is just a common problem noticed by most people over at VWvortex.com.
So you can take your alternator to get tested but if it is tested cold then well it may appear to be working ok. When in reality it is broken. Trust me...it is a cheap enough part and easy enough to fix to not just try it. Some can even change the regulator without taking the alternator out. If you have small enough hands I can see it being done.
