A/c stopped working on 2005 pontiac grand prix


may be low on 134a freon. The compressor cannot cycle without enough freon in the system. Buy a can at the store and add it to the system. if This does not work, have it serviced by a qualified a/c tech

Very little air blows into car with air conditioner fan running high


if it low on freon the compressor will kick on and off i.e. causing little or no cold air. There is a new product out for due it your self recharge should be able to get at Wal-Mart.

Air conditioner compressor will not come on


So far this year our shop have seen a few of this style Grand Prix with leaky a/c condensors. The freon level is probably to low enough not to operate. With any luck the system may just need to be recharged with 134A freon.

A/c blowing hot air. 3 out of 5 vents are blowing.


With regards to you a/c not blowing cold there are several faults that could cause this. Your compressor may not be working, they may be a restriction in your A/C lines, your compressor and/or evaporator may be clogged, you may have a leak, or i could be something as simple as fuse.

My 96 grand prix's air conditioner compressor will not turn on when the switch is activated. I have replaced the large fuse under the hood but that still hasn't solved the problem. The indicator light on...


that light goes on mostly likely cause you need freon. the compressor will not go on if there is no freon. buy a userfriendly can at autozone. put it in low pressure valve(blue)  if it works but no cold enough air check under your hood for the proper pounds or ounces needed of freon.  if it doesnt work its your compressor.  GOOD LUCK! :)
