The condenser cooling fan(s) are not working. Usually, it will be a fuse, the relay, or a bad fan motor itself. It cools while your car is moving due to ram air flow through the condenser....

Hi...
the problem is related to the cooling fan. when you driving the outside air blows on the radiator cooling the refrigirant and the work done by the fan can be less. but when you are at stop the workdown by the fan should be more to get the required cooling because no air is flowing on the radiator.

so please check the fan weather it it running at correct speed and starts and stops at correct time.

if my information was usefull please vote

What controls the radiator cooling fans in the ac mode on a pontiac torrent 2006


Well the computer activates the relay for the fans when needed.
You should be able to jumper the relay to check the fan operation.
The fans come on when the ac pressure reaches 200psi or so, not as soon as you turn the ac on.

My torrent is showing that it is getting to hot and is showing in the red on the temperature gage. What is wrong?


Need more info. Does it overheat very quickly after you start driving? If so , probably needs new thermostat. Is it ok till you stop and idle for a while? If so , the cooling fans on the rad aren't coming on.
Your 2006 should still be under warranty , call your GM dealer .

You have lost some charge in your system. I would have a mechanic top off the charge but also add some refrigerant oil as well. The cool will often slow down at an idle, but should not start to blow warm.

Nissan 2000 ac hot when idle


the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
