2000 jeep grand cherokee air conditioning

I was driving home in my 2000 jeep grand cherokee limited and all of a sudden my ac started blowing warm air. when i got home and looked under the hood the main belt was smoking where it was touching what i believe is the air conditioning unit. now the ac won't blow cold air and there's a faint burnt rubber/plastic smell. does my a/c just need recharged? please help!

    is it safe to drive my vehicle at this point as long as i don't use my a/c? where would you recommend me taking the a/c to get fixed?

Sounds like the clutch field on or bearing on the front of the compressor went bad take a closer look at the pulley on the comp. and see if there is any debris or melted plastic coming out behind the pulley,if so the clutch,field and bearing should be replaced,hope this helps

    i wouldnt drive it to far the pulley could lock up and the belt would be ruined and it might also throw the belt,which means you would lose your power steering,charging system,cooling system,take it to a local shop with a good reputation,hope this helps

How do i replace/install a heater core for a 1999 limited edition jeep cherokee 4.0 liter 6cyclinder


I would make sure the core is the problem. You may have a heater control valve that cuts off flow to the core by vac. or a blend door that cuts off air flow thru the core.
You will need a shop manual to replace the core. The dash and console have to come out, along with discharging the ac.

2000 jeep grand cherokee limited with climate controle and 6 cyl. the ac blows cold on the driver side and hot on the passenger side.


If you have duel climate control, it sounds like the blend doors inside the heater box have broke. It is a rather large repair to do. If you don't have duel climate control, look for a broken, leaking or aged vacuum line under the battery try. Hope this helps.

Best of luck

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo ac not cooling


My 1999 limited does this. When i bought it off the guy he said that its because of some flap down by the passengers left foot. In mine the passenger air barely even blows because of this.

2005 jeep grand Cherokee ac blows cold only on drivers side. Other side blows out warm air. THANKS Vic


I agree, these vehicles have a problem with the blend doors and since the accuators hit the door when it opens and closes, it breaks the doors. and it's a huge job to replace them.
