The fan is located behind the glove box, above the passengers feet. The 2 most common failures are the blower motor and the blower resistor. This system is a switch to ground setup. Unplug the blower plug and see which wire is hot, it should always be with the key on. With the car running and the fan switch on, hit the blower with the palm of your hand. If it comes on, it is bad. the brushes wear out. Also you can unplug the resistor, and ground the output wire at the blower, or resister. to see if it works.

General Troubleshooting Information
How to Retrieve a DTC

The Climate Control Unit has a self-diagnosis function. To run the self-diagnosis function, do the following:
1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
2. Tu rn the fan switch OFF, the temperature control dial to MaxCool (60.F or 18.C), and the mode control dial to Vent.
3, Turn the ignition switch ON (ll),then press and hold the recirculation control switch. Within lO seconds while holding the switch down, press the rear window defogger switch five times. The recirculation indicator blinks two times and the A/C indicator comes on, then the self-diagnosis will begin. About 15 seconds later, the self diagnosis will finish and the Ay'C indicator goes off. lf there is any problem in the system after finished self diagnosis, the recirculation indicator will blink the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) 1 through 13. When problems in the evaporator temperature sensor circuit are detected (codes 14 and t5), the A/C indicator will blink the DTC. lf no DTCs are found. the indicator will not blink.

SOURCE: Acura MDX A/C won't come on

I went to an Acura dealer to buy the transistor for the rear A/C unit. The service advisor told me that the problem with the front A/C was probably due to a defective front transistor / resistor. I bought that part too.

The front transistor is located next to the blower motor under the dash on the passenger's side. It is secured by three or four small bolts. The one on the bottom left is very close to the carpet and the most difficult to get off and put back on.

The rear transistor is located behind the carpeted trim panel on the center console (driver's side). The carpeted trim panel is secured by clips only - there are no screws, so remove it carefully starting at the side near the accellerator pedal. Once the panel has been removed, reach inside a small hole in the metal frame to access the rear transistor. It is removed by twisting it and pulling it out. The hole in the frame is small and you might find pliers helpful.

After replacing both parts, the front and rear A/C are working. Apparently these transistors are common failures. If the A/C is out in your Acura MDX and the fuse checks good, a new transistor will likely solve your problem.

SOURCE: 2005 Acura RL A/C blowing warm air

I have just purchased this car in the winter and found that the A/C was not blowing cold air. I am one month past warranty. I was told the same about the compressor not engaging. There is a charge as well and the Freon was drained and retested. Do yourself a favor....I have had the A/C clutch and Stator replaced, then the compressor, and now after $1000 (not including the charge of $1500 for compressor replace)I still have no A/C. It turns out that now the dealership has informed me that there is a blockage that cannot be blown free and the entire dashboard must be removed and a valve and the filter must be replaced. The blockage caused the clutch, stator, and the compressor to blow due to the Freon trying to be pushed through the blockage. The total cost to the job is $2,300 and the dealership ended up keeping my car for 1-1/2 weeks. Save yourself a lot of time and hopefully money and bring this to the attention of your repairman. Most of the time took them trying to isolate the problem. This sounds like a common occurance in the 2005 RL. I hope you have better luck than I did and hopefully save you some money.

My 97 Acura client 3.0 over heats while stopped but when I drive off it cools back down is that my fan switch making that happen?


If your car has an electric fan, then that is a very likely cause - or a failed fan itself. When driving, the movement of the vehicle thru the air cools the radiator. When stopped, little to no airflow takes place - unless your fan forced the air through it. If your fan is not running, that would explain the high temperature. Next, find out what is preventing the fan from turning. Good luck!

06 Kia Sedona overheats when ac is on. If the ac is off the van will return to normal temps. Had the compressor just replaced and v-belt. Both fans appear to be running when ac is on.


Does the engine over heat or the gauge goes to hot. Really hot. Since the A/C is on , this puts an extra load on the engine. This is why the fans come on when the A/C is turned on. This is usually low speed fan mode. High speed doesn't come on untilll 220 to 230 degrees. Most vehicles. Cars don't over heat untill the gauge gets in the red, when it starts getting close is time to worry and stop. I guess the question to you would be, What does the temp gauge read?

Yeaterday, my 2002 Acura MDX Navagation system began constant resetting and cycling into the power-up sequence. Just prior to that, it was taking a *long* time to do things, when reacting to a button being...


I had posted the similar problem with my 2002 Navi. It turned out to be a bad DVD/base unit. Unfortunately, just about all of the advice posted here was incorrect. The DVD unit is basically a complete computer and it sends raw video signals to the display unit just like a PC sends video to an LCD display; when the computer dies or is off, the display goes blank. So, any problems with sluggish or unusual behavior indicates the base unit is going bad. In my case, it was so dead that it couldn't event eject the DVD - I had to literally take the DVD drive apart to get my disc out. I bought a used Navi DVD base unit online from "acurahondatech" on eBay. This guy was great; he helped me diagnose the problem and found the right unit to work with my model MDX. I highly recommend him.

2002 monte carlo overheating


Better make sure the fan works. There is a switch on the radiator that turns the fan on when it gets to a certain temperature. It could be the fan or the switch. Your thermostat is not your cap, it's in a different location. (Usually at the engine end of the upper radiator hose) Get the leak check! A good garage can pressure test the system to see what leaks you might have.

My mdx 2002 acura fan blows constantly and kills my battery.


You most likely have a sticking fan control relay.
Remove the relay to confirm fan stops.

Air Conditioner


It is probably being caused by one of the vent doors (in the AC/heat system) sticking and not moving into the air conditioner mode. For a temporary fix, just keep changing the controls from heat to AC and
sooner or later it will probable work. For a permanent fix you need to use 3 in 1 oil and try to oil the doors in the system.

Hope this helps Good luck
