Re: No a/c

Is there a way to see if it needs recharge? Other than mechanic.

Re: No a/c

OBA stands for On Board Air...

You can recharge your own system, but you have to buy some tools to do it, Harbor Freight sells everything but I have no clue how reliable it is.

Go up to autozone and buy a $10 recharge kit that comes with the gauge and the freon(sp) to recharge it.

Re: No a/c

Turn it on &see if the center of the clutch is turning. If it spins-stops-spins-etc its most likely a little low. If it doesn't spin either its really low (press switch holding it out), clutch ,relay.... If it stays on check the lines to/ from the firewall. Thin one should be warm fat one should be cold. Most vehicles have a sight glass - not yet sure on these. The more bubbles the less refridgerant. FYI leaks will be oily.
Happy hunting

Re: No a/c

I am starting to think that the temp knob is broken somehow. Even when I do the vent for outside air it comes out hot. Like the temp knob is stuck on hot.

Hot air comes out on vent with a/c button on.
Hot air comes out on vent with a/c button off.

Sounds like its leaked all the freon out or the
Condensor or a line is bad. Your gonna have to do some investigating. We can't do it for you over the net.

Re: No a/c

I would believe this if the air was coming out room temp., but it comes out hot in the cold or hot setting.

Re: No a/c

OK Now it switches between hot and cold but slowly and with a clicking sound under the dash in front for a few seconds. So I have narrowed down the problem to the vent door under the dash and the little cogs and stuff down there.

How can I fix?
