Question about 2004 Kia Sedona
On my 2005 Kia Sedona I had to replace the alternator, and when I got it back the AC Compressor was not working. Before the alternator went out the compressor worked fine. I don't thing my michanic hooked something up correctly (mechanic known for bad work, but no choice where I live). How can I check to see if my AC compressor was reattached or if I need a new one?

To start with you have to do this:
With the engine cold, start the car and say after 30 to 40 secs. open the radiator cap.
Carefully and slowly, cause if the problem is either in the cylinder block or cylinder head this shows immediately as water would be compressed in the radiator ( even though the motor is still cold ).
If nothing happens and you would not notice any bubbles in the radiator, then we have to talk again.

normally it is the line between the compressor and the condenser..the metal to rubber hose connection under the silver wrap..this is a common problem that kia knows about...good luck

SOURCE: AC not working on KIA
if you have freon full and got power to the relay the you need to check the radiator fan if working if yes the a/c cut off switch should be mounted on the a/c lines if it is two wires disconnected and jump the tow wires togather by small paper clips for few seconds and start the eng put the a/c on if started working good then you have a bad switch for 3 wires switch is to replace

If there is 12 volts at the compressor,then the coil on the clutch is bad.Most of the time,compressor with coil/clutch,is cheaper to purchase than just the clutch.I hope this helps you.
