I got my air fixed last year and it's been great. The past few weeks it wasn't blowing as cold as it should. Finally, yesterday, it stopped. I now only have hot air.
I noticed the condenser fan wasn't kicking on. I thought it was the fan, but I ran power to it and it worked. I finally found the fuse under the hood was blown. I put a new one in and it blew immediately. I put another one in and it blew too. What THE HECK is causing this?? I'm burning up!! :)
same problem. replaced the fan. the problem must be a short in the connector or in the a/c switch.

The very first thing you need to do is to check for fuses or
say faulty fuse. Secondly check fan which starts along with air conditioner, it
might be manually switched off or the fan may have been clogged. Also reason
can be lack of refrigerant - charge your air conditioner with refrigerant. Last
thing you need to check is cooling coil - the cooling coil may freeze if there
is no refrigerant in the system.
Check if condenser fan is working.
When a/c is on , electric fan on the radiator should come on.
If it's not , system may overheat and shut down , when you move there is natural air flow through condenser , when you stop , if fan is not on no air flow (cooling) through condenser , system pressure rising and safety switch shuts off the compressor.
If it blows, but not cold, Either you have a leak in the system, the condenser fan isn't running (although it would cool on the highway forcing air through the condenser.. It needs a partial charge with UV dye so any leaks can be traced...
hi its most likley to be the radiator fan drawing more currant than normall that is not that simple to find as its proberly the windings in the fan its a process of elimanation you can fit an inline fuse in the main feed wire on the fan and see if it blows this first and seen as there is more than one appiance running on this fuse you could dissconnect the air conditions terminals so there is no currant passing through the fuse you can do the same with the abs as the cars computer will reset the system to normall braking system which is perfectly safe but i would expect the abs light to come on if theres a problem with the abs also check the grounding to these applances as bad grounds will cause a high resistance hence blow your fuse yates210456
the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)
Make sure your are using the right amp fuse, if so you will need have the fan relay checked by a mechanic. The porblem would be in the wiring of the car since there is not much to a air conditioning system in a civic. As for the air not being cold you may have a leak in the plumbing of the air system that needs to be fixed because freon is very expinsive.
