2005 Kia Sportage - A/C and/or heater quit blowing air

I can hear the compressor kick on when I turn the A/C on, but no air comes out. Is this the blower motor? If so, how easy is it to replace?

Probably the blower motor resistor. Can you hear the compressor kicking on? If the fan won't blow at any speed, I'll bet it's the resistor.

Hope helps; keep in touch, and remember rated this help.

    There is absolutely no air coming out at any setting (A/C, heat, etc). The compressor does kick on. I'll look into the resistor..thanks!

2005 kia sportage Do Power Windows stop working if they're cold and heater isn't blowing enough air to heat vehicle?

No, should not affect the power windows. Something else made them stop working. If no windows work at all, could be a fuse for them is bad. If fuse is good (some vehicles use a circuit breaker rather than a fuse), then you need to start testing at the master power window switch, which is the window switch on the driver's door.

2005 Kia Sportage ac does not blow for a few days then next morning it will be fine again

There may be a cabin filter, but you should still hear the blower running even if the filter is clogged.
A mechanic would check for voltage and ground at the blower motor when it does not work.

2005 Kia Sportage. A/C blows but does not blow out cold air heater works find. Any ideas what the problem might be?

the A/C system can have many problems first check at the compressor. look to see if when the air is on that the clutch on the compressor is spinning. if it is not try adding some refrigerant to the low side inlet. i would use the kind with the dye in it. if the system is completely empty you may need to put two cans in just to get the compressor to kick on. if you have two cans in and the compressor clutch is not spinning then you compressor is shot and will need to be replaced. if it is spinning it should be blowing cold. look for leaks in the lines leaks will be identified by the dye glowing usually green if no leaks are found you may have just lost refrigerant from normal usage. if that is the case add another can to top it off and enjoy. hope this helps '

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan

What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

Air conditioner HELP !!!!!!!!
