Some 2001-2002 models had serious problem from factory and typically fail within the first 50K-75K miles (but don't bother calling, Suzuki will not do anything about it). The Nippon-Denso compressors used those years occasionally had aluminum chips left over from manufacturing process. Usually the chips get cleaned out before installation into the car but not always. ONLY cure is to replace all components: compressor, both condensers (front and rear), both expansion valves (front and rear), and dryer. AND, before any new components installed, ALL lines must be flushed clean and blown (sucked?) dry. Since the compressors alone are $1200 (from dealer) and total job can run upwards of $2500, you don't want to do this too often. Get it done right the first time!! We did and it's been fine since then.

What exactly do you mean by going out? Is the compressor locking up? Is the freon leaking out? Is it blowing a fuse? You have to be a little more specific.

maybe you have caused a short somewhere when replacing the overflow bottle... what i would do is run a 5 amp higher fuse NO MORE THEN 5 and if this blows then you have a bigger problem

My 2001 suzuki xl7 air conditioner blows hot air only


Lots of possibilities. The first thing I would do is to have someone turn it on and off, while you look around under the hood (carefully, because fans go on and off).
The first thing you want to see, is if the AC compressor clutch is turning on and off properly. When the fan clutch is off, the outside of the pully will spin with the belt, but the inside will be standing still. When it is on, the whole pulley turns. If this does not work, then it could be a fuse, switch, or the clutch itself.
If this is working, then you need to look into the small sight glass in the top of the receiver/dryer, which is a small vertical cylinder. It should show a flow of clear fluid. Bubbles means it is low on freon.
But the controls could be screwed up, with the hot water staying on, the cold air not be allowed in, etc.'
Operating the controls should allow you to see these things working.
To go beyond this, like check the compressor, the expansion valve, etc., you would need to put a set of pressure gauges on, which are about $50, and come with instructions. There are 2 because you want to compare the input and output sides of the compressor.

AIR CONDITIONER CUTS OUT


there is a point in operating temperature where the engine computer will cut the a/c compressor clutch to assist in avoiding overheating. When you go through another key cycle,this computer re-evaluates the temperature and allows a/c clutch operation once again if temperature is within operating range

2001 honda accord, air conditioner is not working,


one fan is for the a/c it will cycle on when the a/c is turned on the other fan should be linked to the temperature sensor. check your fuses if you haven't already. then check your temp sensor. i'm not sure on a honda but most newer cars have multiple sensors so you will have to find out which on is for the fan. also you need to find out if the fan is controled by a pcm as some new model cars have almost everything controled through the powertrain control module

You may have a leak. At higher rpm's a/c compressor works better, that at idle, because it turns alot faster. Your level of R134 may be low in a/c system. Have garage check, how much R134 a you have in there.
