The air conditioning unit won't work. The lights behind the panel light up, and when I turn the air all the way to cold, you can hear a click like it wants to go on, but can't. Do you know how to fix this? (the air distributor won't work, nor will the fan speed thing. (the switch that makes your feet/head/windshield warm and the thing that increases or decreases a/c or heat speed))


Check the fuse block. Sounds like the compressor fuse is blown. Maybe a 32Amp. It's a biggie.\015\012Maybe looks like a black relay in the engine compartment on the left side along with an array of large fuses. You can check the fuse box inside t ... 2004 Saab 9-3

Electrical problem??? 2 weeks ago I went to switch headlights from dim to bright, could not get it to switch also trying to turn the air conditioner on the blower motor would not work. After clicking the switch several times I turned the engine off and back on, this time I turned air conditioner on still did not blow, switched healdights from dim to bright and tried air conditioner again, it worked this time. It has done it several times since, but generally if I go through this process it works


Yup... electrical problem,,,, I'd start by checking body ground (only thing common to problems you listed) then, check sub-system power supplies for loose or corroded connections. Sometimes just unplugging and plugging back in is enough to get better ... 2004 Chevrolet Impala

I have a 2002 Galant. Air works fine, but when I switch cold/hot switch to hot it does not work. Once in awhile when the switch is turned to hot you can hear clicking noise. Like a door is closing or opening that is binding. The heat will work then. Then if I turn it back to cold you hear the clicking noise again. Now I cannot get it switch over to heat. I don't know if this is an actuator or switch or what???? Thanks,Mike

Today when I turned on my 2003 Mitsubishi Galant on the heater did not come on. When I switched to AC the temp of the air did not get colder. When I pressed the AC button the light in the switch did not come on. I could not turn the recycle air light on either. I have been hearing a clicking noise for the last year but ignored it. Would the heater control motor also affect the AC?

I have two different switches to turn on the air-conditioner. One for the front of the car and one to turn the air-conditioner on in the back of the car. They both work separately. I believe that there is only one compressor in the car. The air conditioner in the back works. The air-conditioner in the front makes a click noise but no air comes out. The rear AC works great. Anyone know what causes this?

The blend door actuator on my 1996 Lincoln Town Car started clicking a few weeks ago and then quit working entirely. I assumed that the actuator had gone bad so I replaced it. I did it without removing the dash, (No fun). Nevertheless, the problem did not go away. There is no air contidioning mode. Turning on the Air conditioning, the vent, the heater, makes no difference, all I get is hot air. The Air conditioning control still seems to be working because the air is diverted to the corre

I am having problems with my air-conditioning. My car is a 2004 Mazda 3. At some point my AC light started to switch itself off and on. I used to be able to wiggle or adjust the air conditioner speed switch and would get lucky and get the light back on. As long as the light stays on the aircondition will blow cold air. But now the light only has come on once in the past month, and only on speed 4 (left it on speed four for about 15 minutes prior to it turning on).

I have a 2000 Ford Focus SE and yesterday the battery light came on. I took it to Sears Auto and they checked the battery and the alternator and said both were fine, and thought it was probably a wire in the back of the alternator. Told me to take it to the dealer. On my way home, I noticed the heater was working even though it was turned off! I turned it on and off a few times but it kept blowing hot air -- I switched it to air conditioning, and then off, and the light went out. Could this be a

The car will not start! The battery seems fine, though. When I put the key in the ignition and turn it, there is a click and the dashboard lights up, radio turns on, air conditioning works, etc. BUT, the ignition does not make the revving noise and does not start. Just a click.


Hi the clicking noise you hear is going to be one of two things now the first and most likely cause is going to be that the starter motor needs replacing this is a common fault on all cars and is usually the cause of the problem.The secon ... 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2004 Chevy Trailblazer, At first you could only get the air conditioning to switch on by turnning the vehicle off and switching over to AC. Now the AC will not come on and it is always blowing hot air out of the dash vents, even when the blower controls are off.

The fan cycles blowing but not consistently cold air when set to air conditioning. I have to turn the ac off and on to get the cold air. The fan switches types of blowing and sometimes maintains the cold air and sometimes not. Performance varies. Does not consistently blow cold air. I already had the so-called "diagnostic" which ran the dye and replaced the Freon and found no leaks.


There is a actuator motor that turns the temp door from warm to cold,this door is most likely broken,and the actuator door is working,but the air flow difference in the blower box is moving the door back to the warm just enough to cause the cold air ... 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis

My Isuzu trooper 1990 makes a squeaking sound at the front..recently i notice my power steering fluid leaks but in a small quantity. The squeaking noise make sound when i turn the wheel (with difficulty when slow moving) and stop when not turning..sometimes the squeak continue even when not turning the wheel but when i switch off the air-conditioning unit the noise gone and i can turn easily. my suspect is maybe the airconditioning compressor?but why the difficulty in turning... Any idea what is


The power steering fluid level is low or the v-belt tension needs adjusting.Its not likely to be the aircon comp.Look at the v-belt.Adjust if needed and also see its not cracked or too shiny that would allow slipping.If in doubt,replace it.It will be ... 2000 Jeep Wrangler

Engine won't turn over, no clicking or anything. Total silence.
