If the high preasure switch was bad two thing could happen it would shut domne the compressor or not shut it down when needed, the first thing is to check the preasure readings to see if theres enough freon in the system and then this will also show how good the compressor is working, the system may be low due to a leak, of all the newer freestyles i worked on had a leak or the blend door actuator went bad anf did not open and close the heat door when commanded.so there are a few thing to check, see if the compressor clutch is turning when on and then see if condensation drips out then we will know if the ac system is working and the problem is the dooe motor.hope this helps.

    the freestyle uses a scroll compressor, and it is the scroll valve that goes bad on them so if you have warm air in the city and cool air on the highway than thats your problem, the part is 30 bucks and it beats buying a new compressor.

The ac compressor in my 2006 Chevrolet Silverado turns on and off while parked. It's blows really cold air while driving, but blows hot and cold air while parked. To hot to sit in truck while parked. ...


the problem is not the compressor but the head pressure is to high and the high pressure switch is shutting it off
You say really cold while driving but on/off when stationary
That indicates that the fan in front of the condenser is not working and the high pressure gas is not converting back to liquid
2 possible items to check
fan--fan relay fan relay fuse
and excessive gas in the system
take it to an accredited ac specialist shop and have the pressures checked
At this point I am thinking excessive gas

My a/c was working but hardley blowing so we put some of that free-on in a can that u buy at walmart and then it just started to blow out hot air. now it just doesn't blow out cold at all .


several things can make the a/c blow hot air. if the a/c was working but barely blowing then you may want to check for a clogged cabin air filter(it is behind the glove box in the a/c box). since the a/c is blowing hot all the time now, try releasing the freon out of the system or have it recovered into a recovery machine. you may have OVERCHARGED the system and the high pressure switch is keeping the compressor from working.the best thing to do is have the system pressures checked to see if the low side is 35-45 psi and the high side is175-225 psi with the compressor working. if the pressures are not within these parameters then there is another problem.

HIGH PRESSURE CUTOFF SWITCH LOCATED ON AC COMPRESSOR DISCHARGE LINE LEADING TO THE CONDENSOR.THE HIGH PRESSURE CUTOFF SWITCH WILL CUT OFF THE AC COMPRESSOR IF SYSTEM PRESSURE RISES TO HIGH CAUSED BY RESTRICTION IN THE REFRIGERANT CIRCUIT OR OVERHEATED CONDENSOR.MAKE SURE COOLING FAN IS RUNNING WHEN THE AC SWITCH IS ON.THE COOLING FAN KEEP CONDENSOR COOL, IF COOLING FAN DONT RUN.YOUR AC WILL STOP BLOWING COLD AIR.HAVE THE REFRIGERANT SYSTEM CHECK OUT.MAKE SURE YOUR LOW SIDE PRESSURE IS 10 - 37 PSI.

1997 jetta ac works for one minute then warm air blows


check the refrigerant level. The compressor is running until the low pressure or high pressure switch switch cuts it off.

Running the unit without enough refrigerant will damage the compressor because the lubricating oil is dissolved in the refrigerant. This is the reason for the low pressure switch cut off--to protect the compressor from damage.

If pressure gets too high, the compressor seals will blow. Thus the reason for the high pressure switch. Too much refrigerant or too much air in the system (due to a leak) will cause high pressures.

If refrigerant level appears to be correct, then suspect trapped air from a leak causing a high pressure cut-off. If refrigerant is low, suspect a leak causing a low pressure cut-off.

A/C is blowing hot air. Freon is full, compressor


Not sure how you know if the freon is full without the unit running. There are a number of switches which can keep your A/C from coming on. There is a low pressure switch which is usually located on the larger line and sometimes located on a silver cannister (called an accumulator) which is the low side of a compressor circuit. There is also a high pressure cutout which is usually located on the back of the compressor unit. Both of these switches can be jumpered out to see if they are the reason for the compressor not working. You remove the two wire connector to either switch and place a small jumper wire between the two wires on the connector block. The other reason my be a low idle cutout switch and this will also usually be located near on on the compressor. You can also test it the same way as the other switches. If it is the low pressure switch then of course you will need to add freon which you can purchase from any auto parts store. They usually come with instructions and all the equipment needed to add in freon. If it is high pressure, then some of the freon should be recovered from the system by a technician. If is the low idle cutout then you will have to take it to a mechanic to understand why it is idling so low. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee sport 6 cyl. The a.c will come on and blow cold air for about 5 min. then starts to blow hot. Can't get it to stay cold. What could this be?


over pressure or high pressure in system will cause high pressure cutoff switch to go open,also poor air flow across condenser could add to the problem. When the A\C stops getting cold is the compressor still engaged and running.

Is the air actually blowing into the car?But it's just hot?It sounds like your blower motor is not turning to blow air.you have a fuse,check the switch that controls the blower,and the blower motor it self.
