    My 2005 Kia - AC works sometimes and other times it doesn't. Had it back to dealer a few weeks ago.... they said it was a loose wire and tightened it up. It work for a few weeks and now is doing the same thing again. System is fully charged.

Check your pressures again. Jump the pressure switch and see if this makes the compressor come on. If it does then jump it long enough to get some more freon into the system. This should give switch enough pressure.

Make sure your vacuum is good on the system before you fill.

sounds like there may be a blockage in the vents, or one of the diffuser flaps are stuck shut.

It sounds like a leak in the water jacket of your motor, it could be just a head gasket if you're lucky. Also check for a leak in the coolant pipes them selves usualy at the connections.

SOURCE: 2004 kia spectra no a/c

needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con

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.

It sounds like vacuum is not getting to the vent, heat and A/C controls. Find the vacuum can. It may be under the hood on one of the inner fenders. The "one-way" check valve is usually located in the line and close to the can, make sure it works properly. The valve could be the very thing that's causing the problem. Trace the lines back to the vacuum block at the intake manifold or fire-wall, and also back to where the line goes thru the fire-wall. Check the can for leaks or obvious holes. They used to be just a plain metal can, but it could be a plastic ball. Check the lines as you go, for breaks and rub-thru's. Move the controls thru all settings and listen for vent door movement. Worst case is a bad vacuum motor or air flow position selector switch, and/or a faulty Blend Door Actuator. If you have been driving around with the Temperature knob or control set at the same spot for months, move it from fully cold to fully hot several times and wait for the air temperature to change each time. This will help reset the blend door and vacuum control system. Hope this helps... Let me know what you find.

Air conditioning sometimes takes a while to start blowing air


Do you mean it takes a while to blow air or cold air? I am going to assume you mean cold air. Sometimes it can take a few seconds for the refrigerant to get up to speed. Especially when real hot outside. If the air is not getting cold for a long time you may have a leak. Refrigerant systems are sealed and in theory, with no leak, will always blow cold. Before you charge the coolant in your system fix the leak first or you are wasting your money. If this does not answer your question please be a bit more specific. Good luck.

It sounds like the control motor switching from hot to cold is stuck halfway in between the two temp settings. You will have to take it down and replace it, it is mounted under dash passenger side near the blower motor.

A/c problems


This happened to me before a couple of times and it turned out that my husband sat in the passenger seat with his long legs and kicked the rod out of the hole that turns the vent from heat to ac. If you look up under the dash on the passenger side, you will see a gold rod that controls what I would call the damper. If that has come out of the hole that turns the damper from heat to ac, judt put it back in the hole where it belongs and it should start working again. I wish I could ecxplain it clearer. If when you are up under there looking and turn the switch from heat to ac and vice cersa, you should see the rod move, but you won't see it change the damper position.
