    AC started to blow warm air. The next day worked fine. I took it to the repair shop.They put freeon and fixed a pin hole leak. It is now making a noise and blowing hot air . . The repair man said I need a new compressor. Please advise. He said a new compressor would cost $600.00

    Had the same problem just a few days ago. My air just stopped working. There is no sign of oily leaks around refridgerate lines going in and out. The air was cold one minute then turned warm. Typically if there was a leak the air slowly gets warmer over weeks pending on if you are losing refridgerate and how large the leak. I'm no expert but would like to fix this myself if no refridgerate work is needed. How do you know if it is the clutch or compressor or just a switch?

Have the AC compressor cycling switch tested, it is in the low side (large Line) coming off the AC compressor, it may be stuck, this is very common.

AC isn't working

when a fuse keeps blowing it can only be one of two causes. either the consumer is loading the circuit too much due to a bearing problem or rusty component, or there could be a short circuit to ground. disconnect the blower motor plug connector and turn your a/c on like normal. if it blows the fuse again, replace the blower fan motor. if not, start checking the wiring for any exposed copper that might touch the ground-negative.also inspect all the plug connectors for water damage and corrosion.

Dash lights and ac stoped working after installing anew stereo. is it just a fuse or relay

this sounds like a fuse problem,you will have to check the fuses in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.also check the headlight switch to make sure the dash dimmer switch wasn`t accidentally turned off.

Power windows stoped working

It could be a few things:
  • First, if you have a window disable switch next to the driver's side controls, check to make sure that wasn't turned on.
  • If that's not it, check the fuse.
  • If the fuse is good. Are all four windows not working. It could be the drivers switch if all four windows are not working. If it's just a single window, it could be the switch on that door.
  • Next option if all the switches are good is a bad motor.

Good Luck!

The air conditioning,the blower fan everything stopped working, on 2002 Nissan Sentra. Does anyone have any suggestions?

One suggestion. Have you checked the fuses ?

I would check the AC or blower fuse to start with. If you have the drivers manual it will show you where the fuse box is. Typically there are at least two boxes to check. One in the Engine compartment and one in the passenger cabin.

Look inside the lid of the fuse box to see which fuse may apply to the AC circuits or the blower and check to see if they are blow. the metal link between the two posts that plug in. If the link is missing you need to replace the fuse with one of the same rating. Make sure you know where you took the fuse out from and put it back in the same slot if its good. Check all the main fuses if possible to see if any have blown and replace if they have.

Aircondition not working....just blowing warm is working

Either you are out of coolent or the compressor is not working.

First check the fuses, then lift the hood and have a friend turn the air on. The compressor should cycle, if not take it to a mechanic. If it does cycle you are low on freon, take it to a mechanic for a system charge. Make sure they check for leaks first.
