It might if the radiator fans do not come on when the AC is engaged. Low speed or idling conditions would have the biggest negative impact on AC performance if the fans are not operating.

A/C stopped blowing cold air and clutch not engaging after charging so I got a radiator fan assembly temperature sensor and tested the three relays but the fan's are not coming on.

if you recharged the ac system then it is probably over full in which case the high pressure switch will stop the compressor clutch from working
take it to an ac specialist shop for a pressure test as it is not charged by the amount but by the pressure readings

1992 honda accord radio and ac stopped working

Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

My ac in my dodge truck only works when I am driving, but when I come to a stop it will stop blowing?

Stop blowing cool or stop blowing anr air through the vents??? If it stops blowing cool air, check if the condenser fan is running (it should be)( on drivers side under hood, looks like a small radiator) if not take a water hose and deluge the condenser with water, if it then cools, you will need a new condenser fan assembly.

My car keeps getting almost to the red in the temp gauge and the thermostat was already replaced I dont know what else to do

Most common problem is debris build up on the radiator front, or debris build up on the AC condensor causing no or little air flow through the radiator and AC condensor. The radiator and AC condensor must have good air flow to keep everything cool, debris on the AC condensor will cause your AC temp to be high even with a proper AC charge. If there is no debris on the radiator or AC condensor and there is no white smoke coming out of the tailpipe and no loss of coolant, I would suspect a stopped up radiator on the inside or a bad water pump, good luck, Gary

99 Caravan 3.8L AC not cooling. But working better when we come to a stop. Acting like recycled air not working

Check the condenser in front of the radiator for any dirt/trash/leaves/anything to block the air flow through the cooling fins. Then check freon level in the a/c unit to see if the proper amount of freon is in the system.(low freon in system will cause little or no a/c). Check under the hood at the fuse/relay panel,lift the top off of panel and look inside the cap for proper location of fuses and relays controlling the a/c system. They will all be labeled and inspect for any fuse/relay that maybe blown in fuse panel. Hope this will help.

AC warms when at idle speed

I dont belived having bigger radiator make your ac unit run better although radiator has nothing to do with ac beside colling your engine. If that was an issue to all cases, i think GM would have recall all of their envoy due to cooling issue, that's not so. If the car has been running fine since it was band new and now it started to have this cooling problems, I dont understand how can one come up with and idea that the radiator is too small, that dont make sense to me. Your eveporator sit in front of your radiator it may not have good flow of air movement to cool down the hot gases in the evaporator, maybe fan clutch is not working properly keeping the fan run at constant speed. The unit mabe also low on feon and not having enough feon in the systems causing your systems not to run properly. Low pressure or low feon will cause the unit also to run poorly and will caused the pressure switch to cut compressor on and off more frequent. Have the pressure tested and filled if need first. being 2003, if with high miles; its it good time to also have your thermostat replace if you never have it done. Hope that help some

turning on your ac turns on ac cooling fan which draws more air thru the radiator, but in this case i would replace water pump.

Air Conditioning

There are two radiator like units in your system. First one is the condenser and is located at front of your car, just in front of the cooling radiator, and behind the grill. The other is locted inside a plastic case on the firewal behind the engine and under the windshield, and is called the evaporator. The job you are trying to do should be done by a technician with proper equpment. An electronic leak detecter, and a charging station w/vacuum pump are the basics. This can be an expensive repair no mater which one is the culprit.
