Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

I have a 2007 seat Leon 1.9 tdi. The air conditioning suddenly stopped working while driving the other day. The display still comes up but no air comes out at all. Would this be the compressor or should air vents still work even without the a/c? Any suggestions?

1997 olds regency a/c malfunction. when a/c is switched on, only hot air comes out from the passenger side (only) dash vents, all other vents have cold air. the manual override switch for the passenger air temp does not override it , the rotary switch on the pass. door armrest was set to hot, but i turned it back to cold setting, but still no cold air from pass. side dash vents ............about 10 days ago i noticed the outdoor temperature readout on the dash would flash


It sounds like a defective temp door actuator. It is behind the glovebox. You should be able to unhook the rod from it and move it manually. Run the engine with the glove box out and move the temp control to see if the actuators move. ... Oldsmobile Regency

I own a 2002 Buick LaSabre. I am having trouble with my heater. When the problem first started, sometimes the blower would come on and other times it wouldn't. Then I started to smack the top of the dashboard to get it to work. Now it doesn't come on at all. Even so, my heater was still letting hot air out through the vents. Now my heater lets some warm air (never hot) out of the vents and only when my car is going over 40MPH. I don't know if it's the blower, the heater, an electrical problem or


You could possibly have 2 problems.First there is a calibration update for the Dash Integration Module.This has to be done at the dealership with there scan tool.Only takes about a 1/2 hr.The other thing is you could also have a blower motor resistor ... Buick LeSabre

The heating/AC fan will not turn on. The previous owner states that it comes on occasionally, eventually. He typically would "fiddle" with the temp., AC/Heater, fan speed controls and sometimes the fan would eventually circulate the air. The AC compressor does seem to work, as cool air comes through the vents at highway speeds.

1991 mercedes 420 sel..compressor comes on and the air will no longer blow out the vents in the dash..still gets air from defrost vents,but no air from vents in dash..


The vacuum motor nside the dash is not working properly either due to a vacuum hose being disconnected, or the door is somehow blocked from moving to the vent position.\015\012\015\012Need to take dash apart to see mechanism to fix. ... Mercedes-Benz 420-Series

Recirculating Door We have a 2001 Dakota Quad Cab and it has started allowing air to come through the air vents when the truck is moving. Although the switch is set to off air still flows through the vents as the truck is traveling. I believe the recirculation door is a fault but I don't know how to access it, so I can repair the door. Any help would be great

Air Conditioner blows just hot air....A/c clutch not recycling as often after adding 24 ounces of refrigerant and still just hot air coming out vents. My thermometer in dash vent registers 160 degrees F. I've checked low side pressure to see if I overcharged the system, It is now reading 45 psi. The compressor clutch is not recycling at all now. Could this be a relay problem or something other than a low system? What about the A/C Cutout Relay? I don't want to pay by credit card


Lets do this step by step. 24 ounces is more that enough, and low pressure reads 45 now is this with clutch cycling cause if it is it high lets just say you in the yellow alert.OK. mercury marquis use a low pressure cycling switch.even if you have pr ... 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis

Why does the air compressor still run with the air conditioner on even though there is no freon in the system? It cuts off normally when the system is turned off, but starts up again when turned back on. I have checked the freon by depressing the valve core on both the high side and the low side and nothing comes out.Only hot air comes out of the vents inside with the fan on.


Why are you running the a/c with no freon. The compressor will run even if you have no freon because it has no way of knowing there is no freon sensor in any vehicle i know of. ... 1995 Chrysler Cirrus

Hi there, I am having some trouble with my Cadillac Eldorado 1998 ESC. My air conditioning recently stopped working, says low on refrigerant. I added some freon recently with no affect. My vents would still blow warm air though. A week ago while I was driving alond I smelled a burnt plastic smell then I seen white smoke come out of my middle vent!? I immediately stopped and opened the hood to find nothing out of the ordinary. Started back up and didin't notice anything different until I tried to

Air conditioning module A/C does not come on. Bypassed pressure switch, but compressor would still not engage. No voltage at connector on compressor. Refrigerant level was low, but now at specification. Still no power at connector. Checked all fuses and relays. Can it be control module and if so, how do I trouble shoot? Thanks

Sounds like the blower motor has burned out, also u can't just add refrigerant u must know what pressure at the low side charging port indicates the system is charged, if that pressure doesn't go to about 30 PSI then u will have no cold air, please g ... 1998 Cadillac Eldorado

I tried to recharge my air conditioner and the pressure gauge showed red and would not recharge. There is no blockage in the lines and I replaced the compressor, but still shows "red". When first replaced, the compressor, of course, with no pressure, didn't come on, but as i tried to add more refrigerant, it started to come on and off, like it was low, but i can't add any, because the pressure gauge shows "red". This is for my 1989 Lincoln Town Car Stretch Limo, and the a/c worked fine last summ


Try resetting the ac system by removing the negative cable from the battery,for 25 seconds,see if it starts back up,I assume you are using a single recharge hose with a gauge,if the system is not running,the pressure will be in the red,this means not ... 1989 Lincoln Town Car

My car wouldn't blow cold air so I took it into a mechanic and they looked it over and recharged my system. The next day it wouldn't blow cold air only warm, so I took it back and now they are saying I have a hole in my compressor and want to charge me $1100 to fix it. My question is would the compressor still come on and everthing if there is a hole in it? Or should I take it somewhere else since it does hold freon. The car is a 1994 Ponitac Grand AM 2.3L SOHC.


If it holds freon it's not a leak. never heard of a compressor getting a hole in it, and no if there is no freon the compressor will not come on (low pressure switch) ... 1994 Pontiac Grand Am

Intermittent air coming from vents switching from cold air to hot air like something is going out but been to the mechanic several times had ground wires checked, accumulator replaced, condenser replaced, complete compressor flush, new orifice tube, hose manifold replaced, new springlock seals, o-ring and a complete evacuation and recharge of a/c unit why does the air conditioning still go from blowing nice cold air for a few miles and then blow hot air continuously


OK, the vacuum motor behind the dash has an 'actuator' that flips the plastic door up or down depending on whether the system calls for cold or hot air. There's something wrong with this system.\015\012\015\012All of the things you replac ... 2005 Ford Escape

I got freeon put in my car and a day later it leaked out. i was told that freeon was leaking from my accumulator stem so i got a new one. then i was told that i needed a new compressor got one and filled up with freeon.Now cold air comes from the bottom put will not blow from the vents and after driving for about 15 minutes it start blowing warm air. i have spent lots of money and still have no air please help!!

I have an 01 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When you turn on the air conditioning air does not blow out any of the vents except a small amount of air (cold) will blow out the defroster vents by the windshield. If you turn the dial to reposition the vents weather it be the floor vents or the dash vents air still will not came out any vent. You can hear the blower blowing but it just will not come out the vents. When I say air will not come out any vent I literally mean no air, not hot or cold, nothing


Behind the center counsel between the floor and the heater housing is a part that is called the blend door actuator. these usually go bad and have to be replaced. ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500. over the winter i noticed the selector switch did nothing as far as changing where the air would blow from. it is stuck on the defrost setting. ok,as it is winter and defrost is the prefered setting. now summer and choose to use my a/c and the air still comes out the defrost vents. i looked at the back of the control switch to see the knob is vacuum operated and upon closer inspection i see one line is mising. i do not see the vacuum line anywhere around the switch,

I have a 97 Lincoln Continental and my air bags would go down within a short time. after starting the car they would air up ok though. It finally got to where they would air up but loose air while driving and the compressor would cut on while the car was parked. Yesterday it just quit! There is no power to the compressor or to the leveler but the compressor will come on when you jump it from the battery. Anyone have any ideas I gotta drive her everyday to work and taking the babies to school. No


Well I'm going to conclude you have a leak in the system which is why the car is dropping. The only time the compressor should come on is when extra weight is added to the car such as passengers.Since the compressor has been running more than no ... 1997 Lincoln Continental

I have a 2002 Chevrolet caprice sedan made in Australia. i am having problem with my car AC. after running for about half an hour the ac performance lowers with very less air flowing through the vents. when i opened the bayonet to check i found that the pipe coming out from the compressor entering into the car cabin duct was freezed with ice formed onto it.i would like to know the exact solution to fix this problem. i live in saudi arabia. Thanks & Regards Noor


It is possible that the pressure cut off switch is not working and so is making the compressor work continuously till the cooling pipes are frozen which eventually is reducing the cooling of the system.\012hence have the cut off checked ... 2002 Chevrolet Impala
