I have a 2004 lancer Es when I turn the aircon on after 15 minutes of driving I cant change the gears the aircon works fine but renders the gears useless and have to turn it off to continue to drive

There is no relationship between the air conditioning system and the gear box in the vehicle.

The engine operates the aircon compressor via the serpentine belt from the crankshaft pulley and if the aircon is operating normally the aircom compressor will not be faulty either.

If you are having problems with the gearbox it has nothing to do with the aircon system. The issue will be with the gearbox itself.

Full coolant level does not mean your engine cannot overheat. You need to fix the problem as overheating will destroy the engine if not addressed.

The radiator cooling fans must be working, as must the water pump. The thermostat must also be working properly.
There must also be no air in the cooling system as air locks will impair water flow. When cooling systems are drained fully or partially and re-filled air in the system must be bled out using the correct bleeding procedure for the particular engine/cooling system. Failure to do this properly will lead to overheating.

If you ONLY see the overheating warning when running your aircon you need to check that the electric radaitor fans are kicking in at idle when you switch on and run the aircon and the engine has been warmed up some. If they do not start operating when the a/c is running you will get an overheating condition in normal driving conditions.

If the radiator fans are operating normally and you still get an overheating warning when the aircon is on or off the most likely culprit is a faulty thermostat in the engine's cooling system which will need to be replaced.

If you have either a faulty thermostat or if the water pump in the cooling system fails you will get continuous overheating whether the aircon is on or off.

When air comes on it goes to windshield then later to floor before coming out the front vents what would cause this?

Hi there,

There are 2 types of Air-conditioning fitted to vehicles:

1) Manual Air - this is where you turn your temp dial to either Cold (Blue) or Hot (Red) and the heater will continue produces the same temperature at all times, until you manually change the setting.

2) Auto/Climate Air-conditioning - this is the INTELLIGENT aircon system, with many sensors placed around the car's interior. This system allows you to select your desired temperature in degrees (e.g. 18 deg C). Once you have chosen your desired temperature, the system then measures the inside temp at each sensor location. The sensor readings are sent back to your aircon computer and this is where the magic happens:

The computer then directs a priority airflow to the areas of your vehicle which would enable the system to reach 18 degrees, in the shortest possible time (this is why airflow changes between various vent outlets). As the system approaches your desired temperature, you will notice the airflow will slow down just enough to maintain a comfortable 18 deg - this is why they call it CLIMATE aircon.

However, if you choose to override the vent direction (i.e. selecting face vents only), they system will take a couple of seconds to respond to your command.

My ac smells everytime I run it. My car is only 2 years old. Did something change that requires a new maintenance to be done on air filters in Audis after 2005?

your dealer,should ask, when in for a service, if you want the aircon system deoderised,they only do it with your consent.we used to do it cos its a good source of profit.......and it makes the car smell lovely.....

No cool air from air conditioning

Most likely you have run out of refrigerant - my Corona ran out at about 12 yrs old. Not too expensive to replenish and your local garage or mobile repair service can do it.

If the refrigerant has been replenished recently then it might be worth getting the aircon system checked for refrigerant leaks.

My car has an automatic headlights "on" that activates in darker environment when the ignition key is also at the "on" position. Sometimes when I turn the fan or the aircon to "on" position at the control...

The car per se has no problems - but finding this sort of thing can be maddening. I would start with changing out the heat light control switch. This is ususally the problem - the item that gets the most on -off - on off and - the item we dread to replace because of cost.

Sadly this looks like it is the problem. HOW EVER - there is some GOOD NEWS

Take down the VIN number and call the dealer - ask about RECALLS and you will join thousands that have saved millions.

Reguardless of how old the car is should make no difference as too how cold the AC is blowing. I have a 1997 Honda Civic with 215,000 miles on it and it still runs great, so yours is just barely broken in :) Maybe you need some refrigerant (R-134) added to make it colder? As to the power issue of the car, all air conditioners take appoximately 5-10 horsepower away from a cars engine when turned on. Have you ever had your spark plugs changed? That is usually cheap $10 - $20 if you do it yourself or probably $50 - $75 if you take it to a mechanic, and it makes a big difference in power. ( Make sure they use NGK spark plugs, that is what Honda uses) Also, on your other post about the timing belt which YES you do have a timing belt and not a chain, I have always been told to change the timing belt AND WATER PUMP at every 90,000 miles. The water pump should be changed because if it locks up it will break the new belt they just put on and then the damage I talk about later will happen to the engine. That should cost you around $250 - $400 depending on where you take it? preferably a Honda dealer because it may cost a little more but they know their stuff. It is important to change it because if it breaks it will cause your valves in the engine to get bent and then you will basically need a new motor at that point. Lastly, if you want to find the year of your car then look inside the drivers side door frame, there will be a VIN number and a manufacture date. Well I am sure this is more than you ever wanted to know about your car but there you go:)
