2004 kia spectra. When I turn either one on no air comes from the vents. While the motor is running I can hear the compressor kick on. Would this be a relay or blower motor problem? And how canI tell the diffeence?

Sounds like there may be a blockage in the vents, or one of the diffuser flaps are stuck shut.

    To answer the question how to tell the one or the other, you can spend the money to replace the relay which isnt always such a bad idea. if that doesnt work, you can always jump the blower motor via your car battery. If the blower works while jumping it then its still good. If you can tell the blower motor is working or at least turning on, i think your problem should be focused around the diffuser vents inside the ducting.

You would need to know if the ac line is cold to each evaporator. Then if the blower motor for the front is getting power and ground. If the blower motor is running but no air is coming out the vents, you would need to check the blend doors under the dash.
It could be separate problems, or the PCM or ac control head on the dash.

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan


What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

Probably the blower motor resistor. Can you hear the compressor kicking on? If the fan won't blow at any speed, I'll bet it's the resistor.

Hope helps; keep in touch, and remember rated this help.

Heater on 2003 kia spectra blows out defrost only


Your vent door may be stuck. If you have electric controls listen for a sound in the dash when your turn the knob from defrost to the vents. If you don't hear anything you will need to check the switch then the door/motor. Hope this will help you.

Does the blower work when you turn off the A/C? If not, it sounds like either the blower motor, relay or blower switch took a poo! 06 Kia? Should still be under warranty.

2004 kia spectra no a/c


needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con

Air Conditioning


Check your pressures again. Jump the pressure switch and see if this makes the compressor come on. If it does then jump it long enough to get some more freon into the system. This should give switch enough pressure.

Make sure your vacuum is good on the system before you fill.

A/c problems


This happened to me before a couple of times and it turned out that my husband sat in the passenger seat with his long legs and kicked the rod out of the hole that turns the vent from heat to ac. If you look up under the dash on the passenger side, you will see a gold rod that controls what I would call the damper. If that has come out of the hole that turns the damper from heat to ac, judt put it back in the hole where it belongs and it should start working again. I wish I could ecxplain it clearer. If when you are up under there looking and turn the switch from heat to ac and vice cersa, you should see the rod move, but you won't see it change the damper position.
