First, try replacing the Vent/AC air filter located behind the glove compartment. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may have a failed compressor relay, in the relay box near the battery.
If all else fails, you may have a failed compressor/clutch.

    Here is my question pc
    Your at a repair shop. They say it is an
    electrical issue. We would assume the person
    would leave the car and the shop would be
    capable of finding and repairing the issue
    For some reason alot of people just bring
    the vehicle home and do nothing.?

    It is common for the Vent/AC air filter, located behind the glove box, to get clogged up with dirt, dust, etc., and this will cause the A/C light to flash. If the filter is fine, the problem has to do with the compressor clutch, compressor relay, or wiring to the clutch or relay. Some shops are not equipped with the required tools to service everything on a vehicle. These are specialty shops, like a tire shop, transmission shop, engine shop, etc. If you take your vehicle to a dealership, they should have trained mechanics to deal with any problem that may come up. The Vent/AC air filter should have been the first item to be checked, but if your mechanic is not familiar with A/C systems, they may have not known well enough to check this item.

We would have no way of knowing that

Was the problem not diagnosed by your mechanic,
and a solution found ?

Where is the exact location for the ac compressor to recharge frion gas on a 2001 honda accord?


If it needs to be charged, it would need the
system to be repaired, as it would be leaking

Do you have a licence to buy & use refrigerant?

How would you know how much to add,you can
ruin an A/C System in many ways in a hurry

That job is for a trained A/C professional

One of the few jobs that should never be
done at home, because you have no knowledge
or the proper equipment.

The a/c is not working and the light is flashing, not accepting frion because compressor shuts off t 2003 camry 69000 miles


i had a similar problem with my camry. It was a relay in the fuse box under the hood. I would try this first before you try any expensive fixes. you might even try to swap the ac relay for one of the other relays of the same size and see if the ac works. then you know you need a new relay and didn't waste any money.

1995 Prizm...Air Conditioning...Only works intermittantly


You may have one of 2 things going on, first the AC compressor cycling switch ( located in the low pressure AC line) is sticking open, and the 2nd the field coil for the AC compressor clutch goes open when hot. When it quits get a 12 volt test light and see if the AC compressor has power to it. Hope this helps
