2004 Alero with A/C problems

With 75K, the ac would kick on and off. Taking it to the dealer, they replaced the compressor relay. A week later it wasn't working again. Now they want to replace the Same relay and the orifuis tube for the tune of $1200.00.

2004 ford expolorer air conditioning will not stay on


I would suspect the AC compressor cycling switch (located in low pressure line from compressor) or a AC cutoff wide open throttle relay ( in under hood fuse and relay center) would be causing this problem.

Air conditioner stopped cooling. Dealer diagnosed evaporator leak, replaced the evaporator assembly, expansion valve, drier, evacuated and charged the AC system. One week later, AC stopped cooling,...


It could be that there was more than one leak and the dealer found only one. The AC system has two pressure switches to protect the compressor from damage---a low press. switch cuts off the compressor when there is not enough refrigerant in the system, the high switch cuts off when pressures get so high they could blow out the seals. Both are a result of a leak--refrigerant leaks out and air can leak in. Air will compress and when it does, it gets hot--so no cooling, and pressures go way up. So the compressor may have been stopped by those protective switches.

Of course, there could be a bad relay or other circuit malfunction.

Another possibility is that the compressor sat too long before being repaired (but we are talking about weeks going by here, not days). The air and moisture (humidity) that leaks into the system during this time creates acids that will attack the metal reed valves in the compressor. On restart, the damaged metal valves eat themselves in short order. If this is the case, the compressor ran until it seized and will need to be replaced. This particular problem is impossible to diagnose. So the dealer may have done his best.

Ac does not work blowing warm air dealer mentioned compressor & receiver out ? is this a current problem with the 2004 ?


Hi,
With engine running, I would check to see if the compressor clutch is engaging when the AC is turned on. If not, I would first have the freon level checked. If after checking, it is fully charged but not engaging, I would then suspect an AC relay switch.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

My pontiac vibe Ac has stopped working..it started taking a long time to kick in ...now it only kicks on for a short time if im lucky.


the clutch on the ac compressor is going out.

replace the ac compressor (when you push the a/c button it should imidiately kick the compressor on).

also check the connection on the compressor, along with the fuses.

AC blower won't come on


The problem is most likely the AC compressor clutch connector. It is a one pin connector. Located under the hood, near the clutch of the AC compressor. Clean this connector, make sure there is a good connection. I had the same problem and had to fix it myself. Works fine ever since.

Rear a/c will not blow air on 2004 Sienna


Your rear AC lines may have rusted and let the gas escape. This is apparently a common problem in salt road areas for the sienna. They separated the front and rear AC lines on the 04 and later models but the rear lines are still exposed is my understanding from a Toyota mechanic.

Oldsmobile AC resistor location


The blower motor resister is located next to the fan under the passenger side dash. You will have to remove the glove box and plastic cover under the dash to expose the blower motor. the resister is next to the blower motor.

2003 es 300 air condition problem any suggestions?


It's the relay in the front fuse box area of the engine compartment. Toyota has a replacement for it. The dealer will charge you $200 to fix. The rerlay can be found for much less than $70. You can pull the old one and replace it in about 45 seconds with a set of pliers
