Question about 1992 Honda Prelude

AC when you first cut in on, blows cool air then the next thing you know it is blowing hot air. The lights go out, and I tap it, it comes back on and again blows out cold air. This goes on the whole time Im riding. Help!

    I had the same problem- a/c lights would come on and off, particularly when I would first start the car. I would have to bang the dash unit till it would stay on. After a while, unfortunately, it totally died, and now I'm left without a/c in mid-summer! Looking for an a/c control panel...

Dude, everyone has this problem. It's the wiring on the back of the climate control panel. If you look up this issue with the climate control panel you will find various links to diagrams of how to fix this issue. The original soldering on back of the panel gets loose and the simple cheap fix is to un-solder it and re-solder it. Then everything will work 100% and even your interior lights with brighten. -neoblis

My ac blows warm air what could be wrong


A myriad of things, could be;
* A/C low on refrigerant gas.
* blow fuse/s.
* heater tap in-op, staying on.
* condenser fan in-op, causing high pressure cutout.

Check if the A/C compressor is cutting in.
Check if compressor stays in Long enough to cool pipes.
Check heater tap, block off hoses to core, this will illuminate the heater being the problem.

Hope this helps.

How do I check the Air Conditioner spark plugs in my 2002 Malibu?


Sounds like it is low on the coolant which causes it to only work part of the time. You could probably take the car to a auto parts store and at least here in the midwest, they can help recharge your freon/R22 so you have a good working air conditioner. If that is properly charged and leak free, then your air conditioner compressor might be going bad, but then you would hear a lot of belt squealing when it wasn't working. Most likely though it is just low on the freon/R22.

By the way, air conditioners don't have spark plugs......LOL

My 2002 Expedition air conditioner will sometimes blow hot air and others cold air


I would check the following possibilities:
1. Is compressor clutch working? - You need to do this when the ac is blowing hot air only - locate compressor drive pulley on engine - rubber belt wraps around it. Start engine and set to max ac. When the ac is blowing hot air, look at the center of the compressor drive pulley using a good flash light - watch it for a while, it should be spinning with the pulley - this means the compressor is engaged. If not, the compressor is not engaged. If your ac is blowing hot air, then the compressor should be engaged and running (trying to cool). If it is not engaged, then your compressor clutch is probably going out. Could be low voltage to clutch, but more likely the clutch is worn out and only working some of the time. Note: if working normally, the compressor clutch will engage and disengage in cycles- but the air should always be cold. If clutch is bad, compressor would need to be replaced (sold as one unit). This is tricky to diagnose and could take some time - you need to do it when ac is blowing hot air but set to max cooling.

2. Low on refrigerant or refrigerant has moisture in it? If your ac blows cold initially after being off for a while, then heats up, and continues to regularly cycle back and forth between hot and cool air, then the system may be low on refrigerant or the refrigerant may have moisture in it that is freezing and restricting refrigerant flow. An a/c shop can check refrigerant level and even replace refrigerant if moisture is suspected.

Could be other issues, but I would start with these.

Good luck

Aiconditioning blows hot air Ford Focus 2004


Your valve that shuts off the hot water to your heater core is not closing.Your AC is running but it is trying to cool down 200Deg. air.May be a issue with the heater/AC contol in the dash or the mixing valve stuck open.

AC cools then blows hot air, tempature needle goes up & down


Sounds like the thermostat is trying to stick,and is causing the engine to over heat,therefore condenser is not cooling the freon down enough to cool.Have the thermostat changed and the cooling system bled out,this is most likely the cause.

2003 Suzuki XL7 A/C won't stay on


The low pressure is in the grill by the radiator. The issue your having with it cutting off then on is easily fixed by removing some of the AC coolant. Any ideas on why the rear AC is not working? Is there a seperate fuse for the rear AC? It just blows warm air.
