You might have them check the blower motor for the fan while they have the car.sounds like theres a short somewhere but it could be in the fan.maybe a regulator or something is bad in the ac system

Identifing the larger a/c hose from the compressor evaporator. is it the low compression hose or the high compression hose. 1999 323i BMW

Hi, the larger AC line from compressor is Low pressure side, for recharging, where in goes into compressor the word 'suction' might be stamped on compressor. It's the line that gets cold.

I had my ac charged with freeon in June and a month later I have no ac. I don't think this is a compressor problem. Any idea where to leak could be?

Check to see if you still have freeon. If not you have a leak. Most auto parts stores sell freeon with a stopleak and oil combination charging system.

DSC light comes on when I run the A/C

It is not your A/C the problem, try this:
1- Apply the brake.
2-Open ignition to on position II engine off.
3-make sure to set A/C to low temp with A/C button off.
4-Start the car while keeping foot on the brake.
5-push A/C button on and make sure that a/c compressor comes on and wait around 10-12 second.
6-Let foot of the brake and wait ,check if DSC light comes on if not pump the brake several time with A/C compressor on if light comes on, if it dose mean your MASTER CYLINDER BRAKE SENSORS NEED CHANGING.
This was the solution for my car,I had exact the same problem.

My 98 burban ac wont work.compressor is new dont here it engage wires are good fuses and relays good .theres enough freeon in system. im baffeled

you can try and jump the high pressure limiter switch on the expansion tank, sometimes they get a bubble. Its the silver cylinder looking thing near the firewall. follow the cooling pipes from the compressor back to the tank if theres a question, on the top or near it will be two wires going into it, undo that switch housing connector and hook a jumper wire up there. switch may have to be replaced there. dont run that for any length of time with the jumper, just to diagnose.
good luck

1999 323i air con is freezing then becomes hot and humid

sounds like there is not enough r134 coolant in the system and when your slowing down the compressor stops turning. Have someone add some coolant and you should be ok.

A/C not blowing cold air

Hi daveyrichard,
Just a sounds as if your leaking refridgerant gas from your AC unit. Maybe you didn;t need to change the compressor. the leakage could be on either the high pressure or low pressure side....Something that may help is to mix up some soapy water, use plenty soap, then sponge the mixture around all the joints that you can see....go as far as you can and as close to the fire wall between the cabin and the engine compartment....With the AC turned on, look out for bubbles....If you see them, thats where your leakage is.....Hope that this imfo helps you to solve your problem and keep your cool.
