60f is 15 c which is good for a vehicle ac unit
the lowest setting approaches 12 c and that is for an ac in excellent condition
you can help by closing the external vent so that the cabin air gets colder by recirculation
clean the fins of the evaporator under the dash,
tint the car windows all round except the windscreen
if you have climate control shut off the heater operation as well

1998 honda passport ac not working compressor clutch engages


Just because the clutch is engaging does not mean it has enough freon to make it cold. I would want to know what the high and low pressure gauge readings are. It may need a can or two.

Ac vent blower


proceed according and fix it. God bless you
If so, the compressor is working and the A/C system probably contains enough refrigerant to make cold air, so the problem is inside the HVAC unit. Replace the motor that controls the blend air door (this is a difficult job and best left to a professional since it involves tearing apart the HVAC unit -- about an 8 to 10 hour job!).
If the compressor does not engage when you turn on the A/C, see if it will run by jumping the compressor clutch wire directly to the battery (use a fused jumper wire). If the compressor works when you jump it, and the A/C blows cold air, the system contains refrigerant and the fault is likely a bad A/C compressor clutch relay or a bad clutch cycling switch or pressure switch.
If the compressor does not engage when you jump it, the problem is a bad compressor clutch.
If the clutch engages but the compressor does not turn (the belt will start to slip and squeal), the compressor is locked up and you need a new compressor.
If the compressor clutch engages and turns the compressor, but the A/C still does not blow cold air, the system is probably low on refrigerant and needs to be recharged

How do i get my ac to work on my 94 honda accord?


You did not say you had check the Freon level or the low pressure switch on the dryer. The low pressure switch will shut down the compressor when it is low on Freon. Hope this helps.

1984 honda accord AC problem, Clutch does not engage fuse good


The clutch will not engage unless there is sufficient refrigerant in the system.

I believe the 1984 Honda originally had r-12 which is largely illegal in the U.S. nowadays in that a certified mechanic must recover and recycle that kind of refrigerant.

I would recommend that you convert it to r134a if you can afford to do this, by putting new fittings on for a quick connect on the low side.

Add about 2 or 3 cans down at the compressor's low side (low pressure) which has larger pipes than the high side (high pressure).

Charge until the hose says you have 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side while the compressor clutch is turning.

good luck to you on this problem.

Air conditioner compressor runs - freon is up to proper level....not cooling??


BOTH High and low readings should be checked to have a better idea of what is going on with an AC system but based on the limited information… the compressor is not engaged or is not pumping. Below are some things I would check;

1. Check the high and low gauge readings with the AC on & set on MAX/Recirculate, middle vents with the engine at 2,000 RPM’s, blower speed on high.

2. Check the vent temperatures with a thermometer from the middle vents, far right & far left vents?

3. What is the outside temperature at the time the readings were taken?
4. Check to see if the condenser fan blowing strong?

5. Notice if compressor clutch is cylcling excessively.
Could be overcharged, not enough air going across condenser fins, compressor not pumping sufficiently… BOTH gauge readings are really needed to get a better idea.
Below are normal car AC pressure readings with 134A.

Normal readings on high and low side with AC OFF (static pressure) – Depends on outside temperature, but normally is between 80-105 PSI

Normal low side reading with AC on high speed and MAX & engine at 800-1000 RPM’s – Ranges from 25-35 PSI

Normal high side reading ranges from 200-350 PSI

Don’t assume that if adding little Freon is good that adding a lot is better! Overcharging just a little can decrease the performance of the system and possibly damage the compressor

Thank you for using fixya and good luck, keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your A/C running again soon.

The compressor clutch is not engaging but according to guages ther is enough freon in system


Check the low pressure switch,or the high pressure cut out switch,try removing the negative cable,for 20 seconds and replace it,see if it will reset the ac system.
