Have the compressor and lines checked for leaks again using the UV light dye detector. Sometimes a slow leak that takes 1 or 2 weeks will not show up immediately.

The a/c on my 2003 honda accord will all of a sudden stop blowing cold air. I already had the filter changed thinking that was the problem. The mechanic is having a hard time figuring out what is wrong...


have you tried refilling the aircon gas ?

It goes empty after a while.

The reason for cold then not cold is because it is a system that works in reverse of your radiator.

The gas cycle through the system. goes through the radiator of the the aircon system (not the same as the one for the engine). there is extracts the heat out of the air. the air is now cold and pushed into the car.

the warm aircon gas the made cold further along the system but the dont have enough in the system.

imagine athletic ruynning around a track. all 20 are bunched up together. there is w spot light in the centre of the infield shining on you.

the track is your aircon system.
the spot light the air coming into your car.
You are the car
The athletes are the aircon gas.

When they run between you and the light the air is cooled off and you are getting cold air.
now of goes the air (athletes) around the system and till they come along again you get hot air.

Now fill up the aircon system (put more runner on the track and voila, less light reached you cos there is more gas in the system.

However if you refill it and after a day or even just a week it the same again you have a leak in your system and will need to have it looked at by someone specializing in car aircon repairs.

Ac does not cool, ac compressor does not engage.


you will need to get it regassed or checked atleast, the aircon will not kick in or engage if the gas pressure is low or empty, have them run a dye through the system aswell incase it leaks they can track the leak and fix it for you.

I have a 1989 ford probe and the radiator fan and ac unit doesn't come on...


has it got aircon gas? the system wont work without the gas, the compressor wont even engage if its not pressurised. you may need to go to an aircon regasser and have them run the dye through it to check for leaks, once its regassed the compressor should engage. if the system then goes warm within the next week you have a leak and they will track it with a black light searching for the dye they fill it with.

1996 audi a4 aircon problem


You have a leak most likely, and these are typically hard to spot without test equipment. Take it back to your technician and ask him to recharge the system and perform a dye test to locate the leak. Could be as simple as a bad o-ring in a fitting, or as complicated as a seal in the compressor.

Just had aircon regassed on 2002 focus bowers working aircon light on but not cold at all


If freon was added because of a leak, it could have leaked down again. If freon levels are too low, the compressor will not switch on. Check to see if the center (it is connected to the compressor shaft) of the compressor pulley is turning.

I have a Mazda mx6 and the aircon won''t work.


what won't work? the interior fan or is all else well except the cooling part? if the compressor does not come on, then perhaps you need to refill gas. in the very front of the car under the hood, you remove the plastic covers where the hood opener is, and you will see some pipes & a canister. on top of this canister there is a clear small round site glass, you can check there for gas if you have dye, or you can unscrew the cap over the refill nipples and depress with you finger nail, air (gas) should blow out under good pressure, not a little only. there is also a fuse you can check situated in the same place, this is for the compressor
