Without troubleshooting with a meter to make sure more often than not the dual capacitor is the reason that the fan blows but the compressor does not start.

This is the part for your model that we are talking about:

You can test you old one if your good with an analog meter by simply reversing the leads across the terminals on an R X1000 or higher setting on the meter. The meter should jump give a momentary reading and drop return to infinity. Only 2 of the 3 terminals will show meter movement. Mind you you must make sure the unit is unplugged while testing.

Thanks for using FixYa

03 grand am ac wont blow cold air

Two things are very likely to be your problem. Freon or compressor. Turn on the ac on cold and see if the compressor is engaging, if it is and stops and goes or if it doesn't. try to check the compression on the low side of your ac, the smallest plug where you service the ac. Or take it to an ac professional to get it refilled or checked. Remember, just because its blowing air, it doesn't mean its working. There are fans inside the car that push the cold air inside your vehicle and most of the time these will work, but that's not the only part required to blow cold air inside your car, the compressor is what makes the air cold.

Why wont my air conditioner on my '98 ford mustang blow out cold air?

More than likely your A/C compressor is the problem. Normally what will happen is the internal pressure becomes too high and causes the freon not to expand and therefore the air remains hot after the compression cycle. Have the high side and low side pressure checked. Am sure you will find the high side pressure is excessive. Good luck.

2001 Chevy blazer 4.3l, can't get any cool air blowing from my ducks, my a/c system is good and heating is good. I only get hot air, any help?

Does the cold-side tube coming from the compressor actually get cold? It's possible for the compressor to run w/o actually compressing freon. Tx, Petra

A\c does not blow cold and system is

A 1999 Cherokee with the compressor running can be overcharged or the compresser blown, ( not pumping) Most of the timw if this happens the pump is noisely when running with gauges hooked to the system and the compressor on the low side shold be low and the high side 175 lbs. or more. If it is and the lines coming from the compressor are hot on the highside(small)and coldonthelow ( bigger ) thenan air doormay not be working in the dash. a scanner may help looking thought the body control systems and find something not working correctly.

Hi there. If unit just starts to get cold then the compressor shuts off and if the compressor comes back on after 3 to 5 minutes, the system has a freon leak or the compressor is over heating.
If you are technically inclined, search for leaks using soapy water at all tubing connections.
For overheating compressor: Clean the condenser with compressed air or vacuum cleaner. If still overheating, start switch or start capacitor may be bad.

Vw passat air condining not blowing cold air

It's very possible that the fan itself is bad - relatively common on VW's. First check the fuse for the fan on the fuse panel.
You could also have a fan control module problem. Can you hear/feel the compressor turn on? If so, then the module is good and you probably have a bad fan or a blown fuse.
