Make sure the cooling fan is working, if it doesnt cool the condensor the air will get hot, the other thing is to see if its low on freon or if the compressor loses power or the cluth stops turning due to power loss or bad clutch that gets hot.hope this helps, another important thing is theres a vacuum line on the rear of the intake that goes bad the line controls the heat door , start engine and listen for hissing look and feel at rear of intake for a bad hose its a common problem also, take a good look use your hand to move the hoses around to see it they leak vaccum , hope this helps.

Overheating


May have an air pocket if running a bit warmer then usual. I believe this make has a bleed of screw in front of the engine. Try cracking it when warm to get rid of air, close when no more air is present. . If that doesn't help you may have to get a scan tool go to live data and see actual temp of motor.

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

2004 camry ac light blinking and throws hot air. Suggestions?


My 2003 Toyota Camry AC often starts blowing hot air and the AC light starts blinking. I don't know why the following process works, but it does. Using the temp selector (left) reduce the temperature all the way down to Max Cold and then push the Auto button. It will start blowing out very cold air. After a little while push the temp selector to the desired temperature.

I'm afraid you have the deluxe system,my friend. It has 2 electronic circuit boards that may be going bad. Very expensive unless you can find used or aftermarket.
I hope it's just the blower motor, but I had the other thing happen and I had to wire around it,losing my AUTO temp and blower control. don-ohio
