Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

I have a 92 old Cutlass Siera, the lighter socket

I have a 92 Cutlass Siera, I dont have air conditioning, the belt is not on the compressor which tells me its not working. My daughter bought this car cheap and didnt care about air....I do.
I want to plug a fan into the lighter socket but that also seems to not be working. I checked the console fuse and when I pulled it out everything else on the console went out so I know the fuse is good. so unless it's on a different fuse it has to be the wiring. What type of place or mechanic should I consult? As you might note I am trying to keep this on the cheap.

First I would check to make sure that the A/C compressor isn't locked up as that may be why the belt isn't on it. If the compressor is bad then the repairs can become very expensive in a hurry. $600+. There should be a seperate fuse just for the lighter, usually a 20 amp that says "CIG LTR" located at the underdash fuse panel. You could have a bad or worn lighter socket but usually the wiring is fine unless someone has tapped into it for an aftermarket stereo system.

Where is the air conditioning unit located in the engine compartment


I assume you mean the AC compressor, this is on the front of the engine (down low) and is driven by a belt. See picture below of AC compressor.

How can install a serpentine belt on my 92 ford mustang,but i dont have a air conditioner unit


You need to get the belt that is for your car without air conditioning. The belt designed for a car with air conditioning will always be too long. You can't cut it or shorten it. You need the other belt.

My daughter purchased a 92 olds cutlass ciera - air conditioning


Just go to the auto store and add one can of R134a. Buy a cheap kit that has a hose and a gage. Add to the low pressure side with the engine running. The hose will only fit on the low pressure side anyway. Watch the gage to see if it stays on "OK" range.

report results.

It won't matter if you add R134a to an R12 system. You may need 2 cans. 14 oz each.

AC dont work and heater door seems stuck in the heating position


You seem to be on the right track. You can manually jump the compressor clutch, to come on and see if she blows cold air. Follow
the compressor clutch wiring back to the evaporator. There should be
a 2 wire harness there with a connector. Take the wiring connector off
and install a small jumper wire between the 2 terminals. this should
automatically make your compressor clutch engage , regardless of
freon level or head pressure switch condition. You may also have a
vacumm leak, which controls your heater damper actuator. Check all
the vacumm hose in the engine bay and try to locate the damper in
the dash, so you can manually pull the damper open, to see how it
helps your situation.Good luck.
