With the filter drier in your aircon system there is a sensor, disconnect the connector and put a jumper wire to connect the 2 wires. if the clutch engage check if the aircon works, if does you need to replace that sensor. if not and your freon gas is full then there is a clog in your system.

Why my acadia its blowing hot air when a/c is on


several reasons why ac not blowing cold. Most common a freon leak causing system to be undercharged. electrical and component failure may also be a factor. You need a set of gauges. find the compressor start engine with a c off the compressor clutch wont be engaged now turn it in on and see if clutch engages. If it engages you need to know what your low and high side readings are. You should have your system diagnosed be a seasoned pro...... If clutch does not engage you probably are low on freon. Put dye in the system so you know where the leak is when it leaks again. you can buy freon with dye already in it.

Hi, The air con in my 2003 Audi A6 1.9 tdi 130 is blowing warm air the air con rad is fully gassed and all fuses are ok . Thanks in advance for any advice on how to fix


The only other thing then would be if the compressor is turning, engaging, and the cooling fan working properly. You should either be able to see the compressor clutch engage, as the switch is energized, or at least hear it click loudly when the switch is energized. If it is not, then there are sensors for the low pressure/high pressure line to tell the compressor when to function, that also have to be checked.

As the engine runs with the compressor turning, one line should be hot/warm, the othe,r (larger diameter hose) should be cool/cold, if the system is working properly.

If the compressor is turning when you have the A/C turned on, then see if the cooling fan is running as well. It must run to remove the heat and cause the process to function properly.

Good luck!

Problem with heating and air conditioning. The driver's side is blowing hot air and the passenger side is blowing cold air


Air Conditioner blows warm air
  1. Air conditioner system is discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner compressor clutch not engaging. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

When i turn on ac it blows hot air


Normally due to low freon. Also, notice if the a/c compressor clutch engages, as it will not if the freon is low.

Have a 2000 vw bug a/c blowing hot air bought a home kit to fill it and when i put the gauge on it spun the needle all the way around. need to know what that means


Check to see if A/C clutch is engaging. If it is not engaging, the compressor is not starting which will prevent the freon from being sucked into the system.

Look at the front of the ac compressor and have someone turn on the ac from inside the car. The front of the pulley(clutch) will spin when turned on.

If it does not spin, the low pressure switch (LPS) is not satisfied. Meaning there is not enough freon in the system to operate the system. Probably means a significant leak.

The LPS can be jumpered to cause the compressor to run (clutch to engaged) which will draw the freon in the system.

The LPS is usually a two wire sensor on the suction of the compressor. (between evaporator and compressor) Unplug the sensor and install a jumper, this will engage the clutch.

However, if it is empty the leak must be repaired.

The capacity of the ac system will be on a label under the hood, do not overfill. Probably about 2 lbs. Local parts stores (Auto Zone and Advance) will have freon with stop leak. This may help the leak. They also make a freon with a UV dye. I always add a single can with dye so that if stop leak does not work I can find the leak in the future.

The system should be filled until suction pressure is about 36 psi.

Oil leak on aircon compressor and does not blow cold air. have refilled gas twice and blows cold for one day and warm the next day.also compressor does not engage


if oil is leaking on the compressor you may have a valve cover gasket leak have that replaced and that will stop your leak problem.your compressor has a leak in it also thtas why its not engaging. you should have it dye tested in order to find out what really is leaking in the system.

My 2006 Colorado A/C runs , starts to blow cold then blows hot , then starts to blow cold then hot..........., finally after the engine gets real warm it just stays hot . I checke the freon level and it is...


Same problem on 2005 Colorado at work. A little research finds that this is a 'gas saving' system. It is designed to cycle often, resulting in less UP time on the compressor, which saves fuel.
HORRIBLE system!
We are going to refill the freon to exact specs and see how the gauges read.
Currently, when compressor is running, a nice cool temp is achieved. But while the compressor is off, the air gets a bit warm. it's 112 out today and this is unsatisfactory.
I found a forum which describes installing a resistor at a certain wire connection in the a/c module. This causes the clutch to engage for longer periods of time. apparently the only real fix at the moment.
I don't have that forum link with me.... so do a bit more research to find it.
