Question about 2003 Buick Century

1 Answer

Air conditioning The passenger side gets somewhat cool and the drivers side only gets fan air. This 2003 century has a manual split a/c system. My mechanic has already replaced the compressor because it shorted out the fuse every time it was turned on. We charged the system each time and still a few days later the drivers side remained warm. My mechanic added the dye to the system and it shows no leaks under a black light. What should be checked at this time? Is there a control system in the unit that may be faulty? Its hot in here,,,help?

    Thanks for your response. The problem was with the second compressor which was also no good. When a third compressor was installed, the pressure came back and solved the problem.



    Thank you!

The problem is with the diverter valves in the dash.

The passenger side fan should only come on while driving at highway speeds, to offer additional cooling help to cool down car, the Driver side fan is for when parked, ideling, city traffic, and air conditioner use. At least that is what i was told.

My buick century's air conditioning isn't working on the driver side. The passenger side air conditioning is ice cold. I think it has something to do with the mixer. But my book doesn't cover that.

is it HOT or just not as cold. If its HOT, like heated air, there is a door problem, if its just not cool, the a/c refridgerent is low and will need a recharge, most likely the comp is leaking.

2001 buick century driver side heat/cool problems


Sounds like a problem with the "Drivers side temp actuator motor".
Each side has a motor that controlls the temp. door inside the dash for the driver or passenger side. These motors are approx. $75, plus 1 hr. labor to install. See more info here...
