There is a recall on the blower switch sensor in '03 Outlanders. We had all of your symptoms until we had the sensor replaced free-of-charge at a Mitsu dealership. Immediately solved our problems.

My ac is acting funky. my ac will blow cold air as im moving. once i stop and idle for longer than 3 or 4 minutes, something will kick on and then it will start to blow hot air. as this happens, my car...


Start by checking to make sure that the a/c condensor and radiator is not full off debris. If the condensor and radiator were full of debris it will limit the air flow from the engine cooling fan which in tern will cause a high discharge pressure on the discharge on the a/c causing poor or no cooling at idle and could also cause vehicle to overheat. Check and make sure that the cooling fan as well as the condensor fan are coming on together when the a/c is turned on if equipped with 2 fans.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7L engine. Air conditioning only blows cold air when vehicle is moving; warm air when idling... please help. Thanks!


Start by checking the condensor fan to make sure it is running while you have the ac on. If it is not blowing check the condensor fan motor fuse that is located in the totally integrated power module. If the fuse is bad it is most likely that the condensor fan motor is bad and is drawing too much amperage and will need to be replaced. Now I am assuming it has an electric condensor fan motor. Make sure that the condensor is free of debris, a dirty condensor will cause high discharge pressures that will cause poor or insufficient cooling at idle.

When i turn the A/C on, the temperature begins to rise and it begins to spill the antifrezze from the radiator reservoir. Dont know what the problem is.


You evidently have a problemwith your engine cooling system. Check to make sure that the cooling fins on your A/C Condensor and Radiator are not clogged up with dirt and debris. Check that your mechanical fan clutch has some resistance to pushing it by hand. If it spins too freely. the fan clutch could be worn out. Check to see how much air it is actually moving through the radiator. When the engine is at operating temperature and the A/C is on, This fan should be turning at a very high speed and blowing HOT wind in your engine compartment. I believe that your vehicle is also equipped with an electric cooling fan. The electric cooling fan should be running any time the A/C compressor is engaged. If not, then you must diagnose this failure.

A/c blows hot air when the car is not moving but it will blow cold air when the car is moving.


Check to see if your electric cooling fan is working when the vehicle is in park with the engine and a/c running. If the fan isn't running then the a/c won't be able to blow cool air as it can't get rid of the heat through the condensor which is located ahead of the radiator. When you are driving over about 35 mph there is enough air being forced through the condensor and radiator to get rid of the heat and the a/c will start cooling properly again. If the fan isn't running and you sit with the car idling long enough [such as in heavy traffic] then the engine may overheat as it also has no way of cooling if the fan isn't working. Usually this fan is powerd by a 30 amp Maxi fuse but each model is a bit different. Your owners manual should have an illistration of the fuses and what they power. Good luck, hope this helps a bit!

I got an 04 silverado when I am parked with ac on for 10 mins my truck temperatqure rises then when I drive it temp drops to normal but ac blows cold every time just temperature rise when I'm parked...


Look to see if it has a electric fan for the condenser and radiator,if it does not,the fan clutch is bad,if it does have a electric fan for the ac ,make sure it is coming on every time the ac is turned on.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

My AC only works when the car is in motion. It blows warm air otherwise.


Sound like maybe your a/c condensor fan is not working, should come on with a/c on, the fan sit in front or back of radiator, condensor is bolted to the front of the radiator, if its not working at stops no air blows through condensor and pressure will get high and a/c wont blow cold, while driving air is running through condersor so a/c will work fine.

When i stop the car the air in the car get hot but when i'm moving the air runs good.What could be the problem


Have your a/c condensor fan check out, sit in back of the radiator, fan should always be on when a/c is on to reduce the freon pressure in the condensor or a/c will not get cold till air goes through the condensor while driving down the road, no air blows through at stop light because fan not working so a/c will not work right.

1998 chevy 3500hd, 6.5 turbo. has two new batteries and two new alternators but when hot there is an intermitant draw that dims the lights and puts a major drain on the electrical system when running. What...


Some educated guesses:-
Check the operation of the radiator cooling and air conditioner condensor fans.- There may be a seized fan motor causing the current draw.
With such a major current draw I would expect a fuse to blow or circuit breaker to operate - check all fuses installed in system are of correct rating,

Check for damaged (heat?) wiring adjacent to exhaust/turbo fittings.

Radiator Fans


You may have air trapped in the cooling system, this causes a hot spot and the fans run, This is a common issue on most front wheel cars, jack the front of the car up as high as you can, fill the coolant reservoir full, run the engine until hot,( don't overheat it) then shut down, let the engine cool, this should self bleed the air, refill the coolant bottle and retest for your problem, restore the wiring, the not running fan is for AC. Spray cold water from a hose on the radiator his will help get the air out after the shut down.
