Answers :

The BCM (body control module) is the problem, have it replaced, this is a common issue on your van.
Another problem with the instrument panels in these vans is the connection on the back of the panel. The solder connection is not good. If you are able to do it , remove the panel and touch all of the connections with a soldering iron. this should solve your problem.

My 1999 A6 works fine when cold, after it runs for some 15 minutes the ABS light come on and stay on, the red BRAKE light blinks on an off, the tachometer goes to zero, the oil light flashes in the center, three beeps sound, and the air conditioner stops kicking out cold air. The fan continues to work, but there is no cold air. Sounds like an electrical problem in the transmission harness maybe. Any thoughts?


I agree with your concern over the wiring harness. Unless you have all of the electronic testing equipment required, I would recommend that you call an autoelectric shop and make an appointment for them to scan your auto and isolate the problem. go ... 1999 Audi A6

My 2001 Town and Country's engine will stay cold when moving, which makes the heater blow cold air. when it idles, (at a stop light, etc.) the engine will warm up causing warm air to blow in the cabin. But, as soon as you start moving again, engine temp indicator drops back to cold and the air cools off as well. Please help me.

My 2007 Mazda 3 AC will stop blowing cold air while the cruise control is on. The green light will stay on but warm air comes out. If I turn the fan speed switch off then on, it will get cold again and sometimes blow cold air for a while before going warm again. The engine thermostat says the car is not getting warm. What could this be?

A couple of days ago my door lock would not work, then my a/c stopped blowing cold air. The light was blinking. The next day the light wasn't blinking and it was working again, and then stopped. Then it stopped blowing all together. Then it started blowing again, but not cold air. The light is still not blinking. We took it somewhere and they did a diagnostic test and it showed no fault codes.

I have a 2002 Acura RSX that has AC Problem. Blows very cold air, but not all the time. As long as RPM is running at drive speeds, I have cold air. However, at stop lights the air temp goes warm. If I accelerate, I get nice cold air again. The other thing I note is that it may be blowing perfectly fine cold air as I drive a half hour or hour down the interstate. All of a sudden, air gets warm. I turn it off for 15 minutes, turn back on, air is cold again. Any suggestions???

The air conditioning suddenly stopped blowing cold. It just blows room temperature air. It was working fine and then all of a sudden a few days ago it stopped. I have tried to put the A/C on auto climate control and also regular A/C with top vents on. The rear A/C also only blows room temp air. I looked at the compressor and it appears to be engaging and staying engaged. What troubleshooting steps can I take to determine the root cause? Thanks.


You should check if there is gas on the air system, if you say the compressor its engaged all time perhaps you have a gas leak or too much low pressure on the gas system, its recomended that this work is done by a pro, as it involves hazardous gases ... Ford Expedition

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 really strange problem with my Nissan 2006 Pathfinder. The heater will not heat up and blow out hot air as long as the vehicle is sitting idling. When I want to defrost the windshield on frosty mornings, it will not heat up even though the temperature gauge is showing it is warm. When I actually start driving the heater puts out great heat, but if I am going down hill or stop for a stop light the heater begins blowing out cold air. When I get going again it returns to heating. I'm cluel

My 2003 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition blows out cold air while im stopped at a light or stop sign or whatever. But as I drive it will blow out warm air!! Can someone please help me with this problem!!!!


This is caused by low coolant level. While idling, coolant is too low to circulate through the heater core. When engine revs increase (driving) some coolant is making it there due to the water pump output increasing. Top it off, and check to make ... Jeep Liberty
