Never put freon into a car with out gauges and knowing what you are doing!! You can overfill and ruin the compressor and a/c lines overfilling anything the fluid has to go somewhere usually out the seals. Then its big money!!!

Suspect relay. there will be a relay in fuse for ac fan. usually there are several relays of the same type in the fuse box. look for numbers on the relay to be the same then pull them and switch to see if the relay way bad.if so get a new one. if still nothing make sure no obstruction to fan blade. if no then suspect fan motor. get 12v to fan to see. fans are held in by two bolts on top and they just set in holder so remove the two screws and unplug the power cord and you can lift it right out of the vehicle. then get 12v to the motor contacts and see if it is ok. good luck

    sorry it has been two days since you posted. i would still like you to remove the fan and make sure it works outside the wiring of the car. if so then we need to check with a scanner if the computer is seeing a request for the ac. also it will show if the fan should be on. on some systems you can do make the computer turn the fans on with the scanner. all of this will help figure out what is wrong here. i promise to check back quicker to see if you respond. Warmer weather is right around the corner and it will be nice to get this fixed. thanks for using fixya!

My 2001 Sebring blows hot air except when I turn the control knob to defrost, then it blows cold air and the condenser fan kicks on . Chrysler has already replaced the evaporator core and that did not fix...


If the ac is turned on and it comes threw the defrost,then it is not the cooling fans,but check them to see that they are coming on,and they are turning fast,the control head is more likely the problem.

The a/c unit on my 2001 xterra will not work. neither the a/c nor the heater will blow any air out at all. when i popped the hood, the a/c line (silver pipe below windshield wipers) was frozen. wondering...


This sounds like a problem with the blower fan that circulates air in the cabin of the vehicle.
The pipes were frozen because the fan was not circulating air.

This could be because the fan has gone out or the air filter has become plugged up.
This website has instructions on getting to the fan and filters and how to change the filter.

My 1997 Honda Accord 4cyl. condenser fan began to run continuously (even after engine was shut off) after cycling the A/C temp. selector from hot to cold. I disconnect the condenser fan to avoid draining...


Sounds like the AC relay/switch is sticking on sometimes. Locate and swap this relay. Look at your fuse box lids for location or search online for the exact location. You also might have a leak in the ac lines or the AC condenser clutch is not engaging to kick the ac on. You should feel a slight power loss or hear a slight stutter in the engine when pressing your AC switch. This means everything kicked on. It's a millisecond before the ECU realizes this and kicks up the idle to compensate.

you may want to check the fan for the AC condenser under the hood of the car. Your AC condenser should have a separate fan similar to that of the radiator. See if it turns on while the AC is on. If it does not, you may want to swap the relay of the two fans. If swapping the fan relay would start the AC fan then have the relay replaced. If it does not turn on then have the fan tested. Check the wires. If the fan is Ok you may have to check out the condenser if it needs cleaning.

After repairing the fan on the cooling system our 2002 Nissan Xterra air conditioner blows warm air until hitting the highway and then it will cool off. There was no problem with the air until the repair


Need to make sure the fan is acually running with ac on.If so see if the fan is pulling air,or pushing air.Is the fan on the out side of condenser or inside?The fan ,if on the inside of condenser(engine side)it should pull air.If it is on the out side of the condenser it should push air.If all this checks out,then see if the fan is running slow,it should run very fast.Is there another fan?Is it working?It to should be running with ac on.

My 1988 Nissan AC quit working soon after having the compressor & ect replaced. AC Tecnition took the switch box out from under the dash and cleaned it. He also fixed a loose wire in it. He said this cars switch box calcimates and does not make good contact. AC works great.

Nissan 2000 ac hot when idle


the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
