Question about 1997 Volvo V90

1 Answer

A/c compressor I checked the freon in my 97 v90 and the level looks good. I noticed that the a/c fuse was blown and replaced it. As soon as the compressor came on and started pulling down, the fuse popped again. I think that I'm going to have to buy a new compressor. Have you ever seen this problem before? Thanks

My AC stopped working. I can see that the compressor clutch is not engaging. My Freon pressure was very low so I added to the proper level. But still doesn't work.

I need year--make--model?
You removed the fuse and used paper clip in the fuse socket? I'm just trying to understand what you did with paper clip?

2004 dodge Durango A/C clutch won't turn on , fuse and relay tested good it shows to have pressure on the gauge s what else can I look for?

If your vehicle is low on freon, your clutch won't kick in, happened to me.
check your freon level. There is a freon can you can get at Autozone that has a gauge on it. The can will explain how to hook it up. It may also need to be rebuilt or compressor may be in need of replacement. Check your freon first.

Why does my mazda mpv stall when ac is on but it runs fine when the ac is dissconnected

Make sure that your drive belt and ac belts are tight. A loose belt will look like many problems. Also could be your ac compressor. They have ac compressor lubrication in a can just like the freon. You can notice the extra strain the ac puts on the engine when you turn it on and especially at idle. So 1. Make sure belts are tight and in good condition, if not replace. 2. Check freon level in ac. If freon level is okay add ac oil conditioner.

Fan wont stay on when a/c is on

It could be a lot of things;
1. low level of freon gas
2. freon leak
3. clutch coil not engaging
4. blown a/c compressor fuse
5. blown a/c fan motor
6. loose wiring connection in the a/c system
Have these things check first. Hope this help!

The compressor kicks on and freon is good no fuses are blown but only blows hot air help

have you checked your feon level ? it may seem good but if theres a small amount then there may be enough to make it seem good but in reality theres not enough to get the air cold.

Ac clutch

fuse could be blown or freon level is low in system. Ac units think of like a basketball with air loss over time likewise in an older ac unit with rubber seals deteriorating low freon level will not allow compressor to engage

Air conditioning is blowing hot air

I would recommend that you check the fuse panel in your vehicle and make sure that the a/c fuse is good, then I would recommend that you raise the hood, turn your a/c on in the car, and then see if the compressor is cycling on and off. If the fuse is good, then there is a chance that your compressor is low on freon, so you should check this, and if it is low, then charging it should resolve the issue. The second problem is finding out where the leak is that caused the system to lose freon. To do this you will need to add dye to the system and see where it leaks. If the freon level is where it is supposed to be, then you may be looking at a faulty compressor, and will need to replace it, and with that you will need to recharge the system.

We replaced the compressor and clutch and the green light won't come on.

Hello there, I am assuming your freon level is correct since the compressor was changed. Have you checked the fuses to make sure there is not one blown? Also Toyotas do have a problem with the switches themselfs.

Also I was wondering if your light came on before you change the compressor or not.

Blowing 20 amp fuse

Hi that fuse should be a 25 amp and it runs the blower, heater, the day time running lamps, automatic light control and the rear defogger you would have to check each unit at a time what I would do is put a hire fuse and look for smoke on the wiring as soon as iI see whats burning I take the fuse off but you have to be quick and pull out the fuse before any thing burns if not check each unit mention and look for good luck.
