Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

AC compressor will not stay on during hot days

The compressor will start and then sfter a few minutes it will stop working. I had the issue in late summer but when the weather cooled the issue went away. Since it has started warming issue has returned. I had the AC charged and looked at. They said it may be a temp switch that needs replacing. Does anyone know where this switch or relay is?

THE COMPRESSOR TRIPS DUE TO TWO REASONS, FIRST ONE IS THAT EXCESS GAS IS CHARGED IN COMPRESSOR CIRCIT AND DUE TO THIS COMPRESSOR OVERLOADS AND TRIPS. THE SECOND ONE MAY BE DUE TO THERMOSATIC VALVE LOCATED IN CHILLER (IN SIDE CAR SWITCH BOARD/DASH BOARD). FROM [email protected]

    I DON'T THINK U HAVE TO REMOVE ANY THING. THIS RELAY MAY BE LOCATED IN CHILLER( INSIDE INSTRUMENT PANEL NEAR BASKET ON NON DRIVER SIDE). THE OTHER CAUSE CAN BE CHOKING ON CONDENSER (LOCATED NEAR RADIATOR /ENGINE). SO WASH IT COMPLETLY WITH PRESSURIZED WATER.

The AC keeps cutting in and out?


New compressor? Was it filled enough? High pressure switch could be on it's way out. Especially if it did it before the compressor change. The relay could also be going out. Swap it with another.

The noise is probably the compressor. Maybe the belt could be loose or worn. You may be low on freon. Start with the easy one, check the belt, then freon. Good luck!

You would need to find out if the compressor continues to run when the cold air stops.

you have moisture in the system this causes your expancion valve to freeze up an stop working, thats why it works for sort time and when it de-freezes stars working again. you need to do a EVAC & RECHARGE with a good AC service equipment, specially attention to pull vacumm por at least 20minutes so you get all moisture out of the system.
Good luck

A/C air sometimes cold, sometimes not on VW Beetle 2001 Turbo


AC will not work with temps are cold even when it is turned on. The air is colder cause the temp is colder. The AC cycles in hot weather because the AC charge is low and needs recharging. You will know this if you open the hood run the AC and you will hear the clicking sound of the AC compressor magnetic clutch. You can recharge it easily buy buying a compatible can of refrigerant. I suggest buying the kit with the gage so you don't overcharge the system which will cause freeze ups
