Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander

2 Answers

The a/c light flashes on 2003 Outlander and it just blows hot air. If I play with the hot/cold temperature control knob by turning it back and worth a few times quickly; the a/c may work for a few hours. The system had been recharged recently, seemed to be working, but just prior to this problem, water (from condensation?) would wind up in the glove compartment!!! I mean on really hot days, **** it up with a sponge from the glove box. Can someone help? THANKS!

The a/c light flashing is usually an indication that there is a problem with the compressor. However, when you recharged the system it worked. Start your car, lift the hood and turn the a/c on. Listen to insure that the compressor cycles properly without any unusual noises(click and whirl noise is normal) like a squeal. Cycles OK...no noise, compressor is fine. You more than likely have a clogged drain tube that you can run a wire up and drain; and you need to replace the a/c pressure switch because that is what is making you blow hot air. The a/c pressure switch is a typical problem on these Outlanders and people wind up replacing their compressor, when they only needed to replace a $25 part! Hope this helps solve the problem. GOOD LUCK!

2003 mitsubishi climate control stuck


Follow the cable.. It's the white piece that the cable connects to. Some kind of spring doesnt push the white piece forward far enough to select a hot temperature. You can adjust it yourself from the driver's seat at a red light. It feels like flat lever against the dash/transmission tunnel. Push forward for heat, pull back for AC. There's a spring busted or something and the knob can't overcome the required force... Just manipulate it manually. You can see the white lever mechanism clear as day if you open the driver's door, crouch down and look for the big white piece. My guess is that it has a internal tensioner or spring that crapped out.

2001 Silvarado 2500 Hd the temperature control switch does not control temp; it just blows very hot. The A/C does not seem to kick in with the switch tuned on to make the temperature even a little cooler....


If it seems to blow even hotter air when the A/C is on then yes you have a leaking A/C system. It will still activate because it isn't empty yet. Another possibility is the temp door actuator isn't closing to the cold position. When you turn the fan off or to low, adjust the temp from full hot to full cold (just with key in run position, not with engine running). Look up at the heater control box on the drivers side just above the gas pedal, and you should see a white triangular plastic box. You should hear the actuator move or even see the rod in center of box turning. If not the actuator is faulty.

A/C will suddenly send out heat. Fiddling with knobs seems to help. What's wrong?


You have a broken wire connection between the temperature control knob and the circuit board behind the center dash console. Vibration causes the failure and once the control knob gets loose the solder connection fails.

For someone that knows how to remove the dash unit and can re-solder a couple of new wires this fix should take no more than 1 hour. Make sure that you apply loctite to the heat control knob spindle nut when you re-assemble it.

The dealer quoted me 750 dollars to fix this issue and I found out that it's a common failure for this year. I fixed mine virtually for free but it took some tools and about an hour of my time.

My a/c won't blow cold and heater doesnt get hot


Is the heater working? Turn the A.C. off with the car at an idle. Turn the A.C. on and listen for the compressor to turn on. (should hear a click under the hood and the motor should change pitch. If no noise, the compressor is not comming on. The o-rings were bad about leaking on these cars, letting out all the freeon. If there is no freeon, the low pressure switch won't let the compressor run.
