1997 Buick Lesabre air conditioning

My 1997 Buick Lesabre Custom Deluxe was blowing only regular air when I turned on the AC so my mechanic refilled the refrigerant. Unfortunately, I had this work done in the winter and so was not able to truly test if the air in the car was getting any cooler than the outside air. We had a really hot day today & I'm noticing that turning the AC is not cooling the air within. What is the reason?

Sounds to me like you have a leak leak somewhere. They can put a dye in the lines to find out where the leak is, Then have that fixed and get it recharged again. Its an expensive procedure though. I hope this helped

We had our 97 Buick radiator and fuel tank replaced. Now the mechanic sys that our air compressor looks bad and may go at anytime and that job is $800.00 to repair. I need to drive the car this weekend on...

It is likely the air conditioning compressor that works the AC--sounds like someone is trying to drum up some extra business and f e w more dollars.

1999 Buick Le Sabre Custom, My heat, and defrost work fine, but my car won't cool when I turn on the AC. My air conditioning is charged and the blowers work fine but why wont they blow cold air?

The first I would do is check if the a/c compressor is working. Start vehicle then turn a/c on in vehicle full power and then off/on a couple of times if you hear a click when turned on then compressor is working properly.If this is the case then you need freon.If not turning on,first check fuses,for location refer to owners manual,if not fuse then compressor needs to be checked which then you will need service manual purchase at local autoparts store.

What does it mean if your heater is blowing out cold air? Help I'm freezing! 97 buick lesabre

I have a 2000 having the same problem. Repair shops want almost $200 to look at it before determining the actual problem. If the heater box has to be removed, the mechanic said expect a bill of ~$600 or more.
I hope you find a solution that is more reasonable. I will keep monitoring your link.

1997 buick lesabre, I cant refill the AC freon, Compressor won't engage and so freon will not draw into system, I believe the High pressure switch is stopping this from engaging, is there a screen in the...

You need to have the pressures checked you may have another problem your system never needs to be opened or anything cleaned out as long as the system has never been open to outside air for long period of time.

1997 Buick Lesabre no power to the ac

that would be a good suggestion. the guy probably do not know what he is talking about.

on another thought, from where you buy them, dont they have a way to test what you are buying if it is good or bad?

original problem : no power going to the compressor.

solution: test first if there is refrigerant. there is a pressure switch in the system that would prevent the compressor form engaging.
there is a fuse that would break in case you have a faulty coil.
there is an ac relay that could break anytime.
and so many more......

the last thing to replace is the climate control....

tnx 4 using fixya,
