Question about 1993 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Tje A/C failed one day and 2 days later the battery is dead.

I turned on the A/C on a hot & humid day [40 degree C w/ humidity] Thursday. The vents blew warm air and then the Check Engine light went on. I shut off the A/C & drove the car home & parked it. Saturday afternoon I went to drive it but the battery was dead, no lights, no nothing. I jumpered the ground lead out and nothing. I got brave and shorted the two battery terminals and there wasn't an arc; it's totally dead! What happened?

Ford Falcon 1999 model. The car cuts out on very hot days what could be the fault. I have had to replace the water bottle. putting the air con on makes the problem worse.

Check/change thermostat.
Check electric fan fuse/relay.
You should have 2 fans at the radiator, and one should come on right away when you turn the AC on.

Whenever the humidity is high such as 70% early in the morning my pickup engine will not start. During the normal days the humidity is down 30% engine start in one self no problem comes through.

run the fault codes to check for sensor problems
It could be the volume air sensor ( air density sensor) that is a problem
I am inclined to think that the problem is more electrical as high humidity allows condensation in a distributor cap that is shorting out the spark
when the engine is hot ,that moisture is gone but on cooling down ,condensation again forms causing the fault

2008 Town and Country air conditioning problem. my air conditioner works great (good and cold) both mornings and evenings when the outside air temperature is under approx. 80 degrees. Problem is - during...

when an ac unit that is working well in the cooler parts of the day but fails when it is hot , it is indicated that there is excessive gas in the system
ac gas is not added by the can but by reading the pressure on 2 gauges
one connected to the inlet side of the compressor and the other to the high pressure side of the compressor ( there are forums where gas has been added by the can that has resulted in hose failure and compressor damage)
it works like this ac liquid gas is released in to a low pressure area in the evaporator ( under the dash) and the heat of the car boils the liquid off. That makes the air cold
the gas is then sucked in by the compressor and converted back to a liquid in the condensor in front of the radiator
there the heat from the compression of the gas is removed by the condenser fan and the liquid is then sent back to the evaporator
If you have excessive gas in the system it cannot be compressed back to a liquid (too much heat in the gas to transfer to the air)and so the high pressure side safety switch turns the compressor off to prevent damage
hence no cooling in the hottest part of the day
as to you statement about the amount of water on the road
If the humidity is 14-20 % there is very little water vapor in the air for the evaporator to remove and so there will be little water separated from the air in the car
AC units cool the air in a car by removing the water vapor (humidity) from the air in the car ( humidity is what makes you sweat and feel uncomfortable as you will know when it is 80% or higher )
using an a c along with the heater ( climate control) is the quickest to defog a windscreen
So have the ac tested for correct pressure by a professional accredited ac shop

Car stalling on hot days!

this is your ignition switch failing. Typical symtoms when stalling, speedometer and tach dropping to zero, some warning lights not lit, power failure. The internal contacts are shorting due to poor design and engineering. This causes vital engine/vehicle electrical failure, causing the stalling(happens more often in hotter/humid weather). There is a recall in place for this in 2002, over 1.5Million vehicles from 97-02 Honda/Acura models affected. Owners were notified in 2002!! If your vehicle is part of this recall, honda may repair for free. Call your local honda dealer with your VIN# at hand, they will give info on this recall and may repair for free. Otherwise the switch cost about $45-$95. hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

Check and make sure you have water draining out the drain tube and that it is not blocked. next humid day run your a/c and see if you observe water dripping on the ground if so look on the fire wall and see if you can find the drain tube, if so make sure it flows free.
