AC compressors are driven by the surpentien belt that drives all the other components, such as , alternater, water pump, power steering, etc. When the AC is not on it requires nearly no power. Only the pulley is retating. When the AC is on, an electric clutch drives the compressor through the pulley. When the engine is idleing you may notice a momentary slight change in speed when the AC is turned on. I'm told the compressor requires about 7 HP to drive it. So, yes it has an effect on the fuel consumption. However, the cost of running the AC may not be significant. Try checking your milage with and with out the AC. Be sure to drive in the same area and type of traffic when testing. You should know that the AC is on automaticly when you use the windshield defroster setting. Some cars have the AC on other times or even all the time.

I have a Honda Accord 2004 with a code PO339, PO113 &PO344. can you assist in advice to solve these problems


p0339 is crank shaft position sensor related error. you need to be sure that its wiring is not damaged and it is not shorted somehow. if it is broken or getting broken, car may stall, or wont start att all.

p0113 is for intake air tempoerature sensor errors. that sensor measures air ehich enters the engine. it is least important. its effect may not be noticable when weather is not extremely cold.

p0334 is for knock sensor on engine. it prevent predetonation due to ignition conditions appear. it is felt when engine is under load like climbing, and engine speed is low. check for wires if it is ok replace sensor.

we can tell that temperature sensor is not directly effects other sensors.
but knock sensor and crank position sensor is to important for engine. if you have no starting issues, even cold or warm engine, invest on knock sensor first.

2003 accord air conditioner


Hi there. When a compressor is replaced, two things are in fact being replaced - both the compressor and the refrigerant (Freon) and if the problem is resolved as a result which of those two replaced elements caused the original problem? Well you will never know and so before the compressor is replaced you need to have you’re A/C system recharged – it’s by far the most cost effective initial thing to do. In general A/C systems loose at least 10% of their effectiveness each year through loss of refrigerant and so given the age of your car; it’s the first thing to focus on. A professional A/C centre will also be able to tell you whether your compressor is working properly after having a refrigerant recharge by the monitoring the operating pressures in the A/C system.

2004 Honda Accord Air Conditioner Not Working


Sorry for the delayed response. For future reference, the blower motor resistor in an 04' Honda Accord is located under the glove box and a little to the left if you are facing it (the glove box). You just need to pull out the plastic panel (yes, you can just pull it out by hand, no tools needed for that). It should be right on the fire wall with a plug going into it. If you reach in there and pull the plug (it has a little notch so it clips into the resistor more securely; make sure you push the clip in) it should have 4 flat prongs on it that go into the resistor. The resistor itself will have 2 phillips head screws that are holding it into the fire wall. Unscrew them and you have the resistor. If you can unscrew both screws before unplugging, it will be easier to see how it unplugs. I know this sounds complicated but once you get in there you will notice it's fairly easy to change out.

Fuel Consumption


Hi,

A Honda Accord is a full size car/heavy and therefore would have high gas consumption, probably around 8~10 Km/L city driving. Highway would roughly be 10~12 depending on your driving habits.

A full tune-up of course would help which may include but not be limited to change of sparkplugs, adding car/injector cleaner to the tank, checking/replacing the air cleaner, double checking/cleaning/replacing the MAF (if it has got one).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
