Cabin control problems: With blower control on 1 or 2 the aircompressor runs but fan does not blow. If on 3 or 4 blower runs and air compressor shuts down. I have replaced control unit in cabin, compressor, dryer, and expansion valve. (changed most due to a bad clutch on the compresor) control issue was happening prior to clutch failure. In addition I relaced relay under drivers side kick panel. I am baffeled...any suggestions?

    Darklord1 suggested replacing the relay located under the hood. Unfortunately, there is not one. The car in question is a 96 Volkswagon Golf. Initial problem cabin control unit when blower is on 1 or 2 the air compressor runs but the blower does not. When on the fan is on 3 or 4 setting the interior cabin fan blows but the air compressor shuts down. I have checked all fuses, replaced ac relay under driver side kick panel, and even replace control unit in dash. Please help again.

Its an eletrical problem, Check the relay on the main contorl(panel fuse box) the one in under the hood, .. The relay controls the the power going to the blower I believe you will find your problem there. If not the relay directly then the eletrical connecting to that relay eighter directly in the box or the wiring from there to the Blower.

Nb. The main hot is in the box as well

    Did you chect the connector on the blower it self for corrosion or broken pins ???

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 17, 2008

    On the blower itself is a minicircuit and copper connectors,, you should check this ,, since you basically got EVERY THING ELSE CHECKED..

Suzuki x4 2009 fan does not spin but when I turn air on it blows cold air.


Not sure which fan you mean. Engine cooling fan is different from heat/air blower fan.

Sentra AC


There's a 10amp fuse that powers the ac clutch relay and compressor. There are 15amp fuses that power the blower motor and the ac control switch. All of those fuses get power from the key switch. The resistor and fan switch provide the ground circuit for the blower motor.
I would want to know if those fuses are getting power, and if the control panel is working. You should be able to ground the blower motor and make it run on high, and that should not have any effect on if the ac compressor is running or not.
It could be a key switch problem in that the circuit is not strong enough to handle the load from the blower and the compressor at the same time.

AC/Heater blower fan stops blowing air into the cabin when I accelerate.


Usually a vac leak. I would check for a leak in the HVAC control system and the line thru the firewall to the engine.

The a/c on my 2010 Mercury Milan quits blowing after about 2 hours of driving. Any ideas?


Sounds to me like the A/C clutch is no good and out of adjustment.You should goto your nerrest junkyard and get a used assembly take the clutch off then you learn how it comes off and install it on yours the save the pump for later use if needed. The clutch should only have a .010 air gap after install between th inner elctro magnet and the clutch plate it's self.

The blower motor for the air conditioning doesn't come on. The compressor comes on. I ohmed the blower motor and it was good. I jumped the blower motor and it turned freely. With the control set 1 2 3...


> With the control set 1 2 3 4 it does blow any air,
? does NOT?
A common problem with this control is the failure of a stepped resistor which causes only the highest speed to still function since this bypasses the resistor.
Tracing the leads from the fan speed switch may help locate it.

2000 Chevy Cavalier making a noise when air is shut off


This problem sounds like the aircompressor pully, the bearing is shot.
With the engine running and the air conditioner off there is a grinding noise, look at the compressor pully, does it wobble? Then turn on the air conditioner and the noise stops, look at the compressor pully again, the wobble stops? If so that's the problem.
