Sounds like the system needs a charge. check a/c belts, make certain compressor pulley is not siezed, have a leak check performed then charge system with r134a.

Your system may be low on freon or the switch on top of the reciever dryer is bad. Do not try to remove the switch there is pressure behind it and it could hurt you. try to have the system serviced first then work from there.

Cooling fan stays on when car is running


It is normal for the cooling fan to remain on when the air conditioning is on. Turn the air conditioning system off and see if the fan continues. If so, check the fan relay.

Compressor Clutch disengages and Radiator Fan starts to run loudly


The radiator fan should turn on when the a/c clutch engages as this is designed to increase the cooling of the engine as the a/c increases the engine loading. But the compressor clutch should stay engaged as long as there is need for cooling, and disengage/re-engage as the temperature control calls for cool air. The radiator fan will shut off IF the engine temperature is cool enough to do so, as it is regulated by heat, as well as the A/c override.

If your air conditioning is not cooling the car and the clutch is simply disengaging prematurely, have the temperature control and relay checked for proper operation. Also have the refrigerant level checked to assure there is adequate refrigerant in the system and no leaks. My first bet would be the relay or the thermostatic temperature control under the dash.

Fan will not turn off


which fan? Interior fan, or radiator cooling fan? Is it the radiator cooling fan, or the fan controlled by the air-conditioning?

Run the vehicle, turn on and off the air-conditioning to identify which of the fans in the engine bay is the one triggered by the air-con and which is the primary cooling fan.
If the primary cooling fan is permanently engaged, then first try replacing it's relay as it may have fused closed.

On my 1995 Lincoln Town Car the electric radiator cooling fan runs instantly and constantly when the Air Condidtioner is turned on. What part failure would cause this?


This normally what is supposed to happen. Switching on the Air Conditioning turns on all cooling fans so that there is constant air flow over the Air Con Condenser.

I just put in freon and now it wont give out cool air


Is the compressor engaging and did it engage before adding freon?
What is the pressure on the gauge for the low side? 25psi to 45 psi is normal when the engine is running and the compressor is turning.

If the compressor is not turning the pressure should read 75psi to 100psi, before the compressor starts turning.

Also, the radiator fan should go on when you engage the air conditioning by turning it up to max.

Clutch won't engage on air conditioning compressor


The air gap may be too wide between the clutch disc and plate. It usually happens from wear. You can test this possibility by engaging the clutch electrically as you have done and then push on the disc slightly with the handle of a hammer or screwdriver. Be careful not to get your hand or fingers too close while the engine is running. Basically you are helping the magnetic field pull the disc in. I hope this helps.

Radiator Fan always on.


Doesn't take a technical engineer to find what could be the problem ! Looking a wiring diagram I see three relays that are used to turn on the cooling fans ! One of the relay's contacts are stuck closed causing Battery voltage to be applied to one of the fans when you turn the key to the on position . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Defroster,heater,vents,airconditionig not working when turned on


With the engine off, radio too, turn the key on and try the heater fan on all speeds. No fan, check the fuses. Fan is ok, check the coolant level, if thats fine, then check for a mouse nest in the duct work. Frankster016
