If the a/c was working and the circulation fan stopped, it is likely the fan or relay is bad. First, try to see if the fan is getting voltage, using a non-self powered test light. If you see it lighting up when connected to the fan motor positive terminal and ground, then it is the fan motor itself that needs to be replaced.

good luck on this one.

I have a 95 isuzu holden rodeo. My a/c compressor is not getting power to it? I have changed the fuses and relays.Compressor works and blows cold air if i hard wire it? What could be my problem?


there are several switches that control the compressor
one is a low pressure switch that will stop the compressor if there is a gas leak
the next is a high pressure switch that will stop the compressor if the condenser fan stops or there is a blockage in the line after the compressor which results in too higher a pressure that will destroy the compressor
next there is a relay controlled by the thermostat that controls the compressor to cycle it when cabin temperature is reached
I suggest that you have an accredited ac specialist shop diagnose the problem as it can get costly

Doesn't stay cold or the blower stops working? Blower motors are a common failure, the brushes just wear out. Hit it when it isn't working, if it works, it is bad. The transistors also fail. If it gets warm, Check the relays for the compressor 1st. If the compressor isn't coming on, swap it's relay with another identical 1 in the relay box. The compressor clutch coils also get weak with age. Make sure both fans come on with the A/C.

My Cadillac 08 CTS will not blow cold air the relay checked out but when I jumped the relay the compressor kicked in and it blew cold air when I put the relay back in I had nothing tried a horn relay...


there are 3 switches that control the operation of the ac compressor . There is a high pressure switch that will not allow operation if the head pressure goes too high ( excessive gas-blocked system-tx valve condenser fan not working )There is a low pressure switch that stops the compressor when the gas has leaked out and is insufficient A thermostat that will not register and so will not switch on the compressor and finally ac compressors will not work unless both the ac switch and the blower are switched on. Have the system checked out by an accredited ac specialists.;l

MY PROBLEM IN MY MIT LANCER 2010 IS, WHEN I STARTED THE ENGINE FOR THE FIRST TIME, LET SAY IN THE MORNING, BOTH FANS WILL WORK BUT AFTER SOMETIME, AC FAN/BLOWER WOULD STOP AND NEVER WORK AGAIN


Hi there
It sounds like you have a sensor problem on the a/c side of the fan assy SO UNPLUG IT AND TRY STARTING IT AGAIN IF IT WORKS THEN CHANGE OVER THE RELAYS FROM ENGINE FAN TO A/C FAN IF STAYS ON THEN REPLACE BOTH RELAYS.

Car runs hot when idling


Make sure the electric cooling fan(s) for the radiator are working.
TEST- anytime the air conditioning compressor kicks in, so should the cooling fans. Locate the a/c compressor on the engine, it's belt driven. Start the car and with the engine running observe the face of the belt pully on the compressor while an assistant turns on the a/c in the car (defrost feature on your heater control will also cycle on the compressor). You'll be looking to see that the front of the compressor pully starts spinning when the a/c or defrost is engaged. When that pully starts spinning the radiator fans are supposed turn on at the same time. If you see the compressor engage but the fan doesn't you have a blown cooing fan fuse, bad fan motor or a bad fan motor relay. If there is something wrong that your compressor isn't engaging in a/c or defrost and the fuses are ok, you're going to have to check the fan motor and relay by different means. You can disconnect the wiring plug to the fan motor. This is where you see if you can spin the fan blades by hand. It should spin very easily. If it is hard to spin or is siezed up, you found the problem. If the blades spin easily- direct jump current to the fan motor off the battery. If the fan doesn't work, replace it. If the fan works, check the relay. Locate the fan relay and look for another relay in the panel that is EXACTLY like it. WE WANT- another relay that is exactly the same BUT NOT critical for engine or a/c operation. We also want to know that whatever feature this candidate relay supplies power to is verified as functional. Swap the relays. If the fan still doesn't engage, check the function that you borrowed the relay from and verify THAT works with your original a/c relay in it. If you lost that function, try the proceedure with a 3rd relay if possible. Again check and recheck functions you borrowed the relay from. If you still get nothing, put the relays back to original placement. If you still are getting nothing from the fan and the other 2 functions, then the panel is toasting relays and you need either run the problem down or get the car into a professional. Now- if the fan won't engage but the other functions that you borrowed relay(s) from are still operational, we're going to give the relays a passing grade and it would seem you've got an electrical issue that, again, you need to run down or defer your efforts to a professional. Good luck on your endeavor.

2003 Hyundai Sante fe A/C fan and rad fan not turning Fast enough while A/C is on but work OK when engine come to temp. ac starts off cold then gets warm after about 5 miles.


make sure radiator and or condensor fins are not restricted with dirt , bugs etc. poor airflow across the condensor. high side pressure could rise too high causing compressor to cycle off and on and not cool the freon properly.not sure what you mean when you say you play with the relay and it comes on. compressor or the fan? pull the relay and look at the female pins and make sure they are not spread open too wide. is the check engine lamp on? sometimes computers will disable ac for some other faults. im not sure if you mean the compressor is turning off and staying off, or just not cooling well due to fan problem. if its turning off it could be a control head problem or the pcm disabling it for another reason. or if you are manipulating the relay then compressor kicks on you may have a bad relay. hope this helps

Jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA


the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

My 1998 Ford Crown Victoria was running just fine when parked Thursday evening. Friday morning, the air condiioner compressor will not come on. The fan runs--everything else runs fine.


Hopfully it's a fuse, if not a fuse then check relay, if not the relay, then check the clutch on the coompressor, while the motor is off, check to see if the AC compressor clutch will turn freely, if not, replace the compressor.
