Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Air conditioner turn on knob freezing and the a/c not working

The A/C was working great, I turned it off for a few minutes and the a/c knob was frozen and would not move. When it finally did move the a/c was no longer blowing and the a/c button would not light up. Is this a typical issue because it is a 2000 VW Beetle or something odd?

you may have a leak, the compressor will not turn on till it sees pressure
in the system (if it leaked out it wont turn on )
could take your low pressure switch off and jump the plug for a minute to see if the copressor comes on. sure fire way to tell you have a leak.
Also do not leave the jumper on the plug. If you do have a leak you could seize your compressor from lack of oil,

Hot air blows thru the vents all the time

Just fixed this problem on my '06 Sentra. The AC lines were freezing cold so I figured the system was cooling with no problems but the cold air wasn't getting to the cabin for some reason. I put a snake camera in through the vent behind and to the left of the glove box(you have to remove all of the panels) and saw that the cable that gets pulled/released when you turn the hot/cold knob had broken off from the retaining clip. This caused the whole line to move when the knob turned meaning that the cable wasn't actually being pulled in when turning the knob to cold. I pulled the center dash and CD player out and the cable was right there so I secured it in place with a zip tie. Everything works like new now.

2005 RX8 heater is blowing cold air. Fluids are topped up.

You need to repair the heater core with a soldering gun.

If you do not have heat, or only have heat, IMHO it is most likey the AC/heater control unit. This is the part which has the AC/heat control buttons and knobs.

Easy Diagnosis:
The easiest way to verify this is to turn on the radio, press and hold the power on/off button and press and hold the scan-up button for a second (full second). The word "A/C TEMP" should appear on the left of the display and a number from 0 to 16 on the right. I suspect yours will have the number 0 (or 16 if heating only problem) displayed no matter where you turn the temperature control knob. If this is the case you could turn the temp. knob to full heat and see if it goes to 16 after pushing down or to the right on the knob.
In a working system, the number moves evenly in increments of 1, from 0 to 16 as you turn the temperature knob.

Easy Fix:
I was able to take mine out and solder 3 loose connections to fix it.

The beginning steps are the same as for any radio removal procedure and check for loose connections.

Sounds like there is either

1. Too much freon in there


2. Not enough freon in there.

Freon (R) being freon or low CFC equivalent.

Sounds like the system is working fine, then the condensor or compressor gets too cold and freezes up (or gets WAY too hot). when you turn the A/C off, the system has time to stabilize and return to a more 'normal' condition.

Check the cooling fan relay. Have a guy(or girl) at an auto part store (AutoZone, etc..) hook up a diagnostic code reader to the hookup uner the steering column dash. I replaced mine, but it was timely and alittle tricky. If you have some tech ability, you can do it, but if not, it will probably be about $350.
If you let the jeep run with the a/c on, look at the cooling fan and see if it cycles on after a few minutes. If it doesnt, it could be the relay, if it does come on, then it could be a condensor prob.
