Seems like the a/c radiator fan is not working. Either the fan itself is broken, or the power wires that drive it are not connected. The fan is tripped by a/c compressor activity, and goes through a relay unit, which actually trips the voltage that feed this particular fan. You can check fan activity with car parked, and turning on the a/c . if you cant recognize the louder noise of this fan, stick a straw into the fan to check if it is turning. Careful with fingers.

i dont know if you have a cabin air filter if you do replace it if its real dirty. most cars ac will have this problem if the ac is low on freon. when you check the freon. make sure the ac is on max ac, at its coldest setting with the fan on max. with the engine running check ac pressure. have someone hit the gas a little & see if the pressure drops. add as needed. most gauges from the parts store have a dial on the front. point it at outside temp & make sure pressure is the max for that range.

Is it leaking inside the car? If so then it is more than likely the heater core is leaking antifreeze. You will need to replace the heater core under the dash.

What is the difference between automatic ac and manual ac


manual AC you set fan speed etc, auto you just set the temp where you want it and the fan will automatically adjust it's speed to maintain the temp you selected, it also automatically goes from recirculate to fresh air.

Fluctuating engine temp a/c sends out cold air intermittently


Here's the thing. The ECU will shut down AC if the engine temperature is too hot. If the coolant temperature sensor is malfunctioning (lying to the ECU) telling it that the temperature is hotter than it actually is, the computer will turn the AC OFF.

My 2003 xtype battery went dead and I had to replace it and now my ac doesn't work, blows only hot air and it was working fine before.


your computer needs to be reset.. go out turn the car on. turn the air all the way up as hot as the temp will go, let it run there long enough fro the heater to get hot... then turn it all the way down to the coolest temp and hit ac it will cool down.

2003 Honda Civic runs hot when idling.


Check the cooling fan switch. It appears your auxiliary electric cooling fan isn't going on when at idle. and engine temp increases. While you are driving, air is being rammed thru your radiator as you cruise along, so it isn't overheating, at idle, that isn't happening, and the fan should go on as the temp goes up. When the ac is switched on, the fan is being signaled to operate due to the heavy ac load on the cooling system.
