    On the 1999-2000-2001 and other years, the BLEND door actuator will strip out the connector piece and even break it,( the blend door is responsible for letting hot or warm air , or cold air in the vents depending on the temperature control settings) it is located center of the dash at the very bottom where the carpet goes under the dash, get on the right side of the truck, pull back the carpet pull out a small section of foam, and you will see the actuator with a plug going into it,, start the truck, and feel between the actuator and the case or look you will see a metal small tube that turns one way or the other, watch it slowly move as you go from hot to cold, it should stay still after moving completly to one side, usually the plastic piece that joins them together is broken and it will just keep spinning, making it get hot as you drive it just takes a while to turn all the way around, it will be cold then after a minute get warm ,them back again.it is tuff to get the screws out but if you but a cheap fully flexible extension, the kind you can put a socket on it looks like a long spring bends easy, you can get a screw bit for the screws and go under there , its tuff your first time but very do able, the plastic piece is available separate or you can buy a steel one from HEATER TREATER those wont break, good luck and you can do this.

get the a/c condensor recharged with a freon substitute, i use "red-tek 12a refrigerant", it is much safer than freon and is ozone friendly.

Check the evaporator coil by sniffing the vents,floor is best, with your tester.

SOURCE: Rear air condition is not working, only the front

No there is only one low and one high side service ports.You have a bad expansion valve on the rear a\c unit.To properly replace the valve,you must first recover the freon from the system.Then remove the cover over the rear unit.Then from under the vehicle remove the two a/c lines from the unit.Then remove mounting bolts and remove rear unit from vehicle.Then you remove the screws that hold the two halves of the case together.You will now see the expansion valve Use extreme care when removing the fittings from the valve.It is very easy to kink the copper lines.Reinstall in reverse order.Be sure to evacuate the system before recharging.

HI. Here is a complete check list that will help you trouble shot thsi issue. You will find the problem in one or more of these areas stated below.

1. Check Drive Belts - The air conditioner utilizes a drive belt that supplies power to rotate the compressor, which is basically a refrigerant pump. If the belt fails the compressor has nothing to drive it, inspect and replace as needed to restore operation. If belt is intact proceed to the next step.

2. Check for Compressor Clutch Engagement - Turn the air conditioner to the "on" position and set controls to the coldest setting. Start the engine and allow to idle. Then open the hood and inspect the clutch at the front of the compressor, is it turning? "Engaged" if so, the system has enough refrigerant to activate. If the system is low on refrigerant it will not work properly. In this case an air conditioner recharge kit is needed to recharge the system. If the system is low on refrigerant it could cycle on and off, making a ticking noise. If the compressor clutch is not turning proceed to next step.

3. Inspect for Refrigerant Leaks - If the system has a large leak and no refrigerant remains it will not activate. First test system for a static pressure charge, with the engine off attach an ac gauge to the low side pressure port and check the state of charge. Depending on outside temperature there should be between 50 psi and 80 psi. (Cool and warm). A refrigerant leak detector is needed to inspect for leak, but if you do not have a leak detector there is an alternative method. The air conditioner system is designed to run with oil suspended in the refrigerant to lubricate the system. Check for oily residue outside the system by inspecting all hoses, compressor, condenser, evaporator or receiver drier and replace any component that has failed.

4. Inspect Fuses - Check under dash panel and under hood power distribution center. Replace failed fuses as needed, recheck system. If the new fuse fails when reinstalled a short circuit is present and requires diagnosing with a wiring schematic, follow circuits to locate short, repair as needed and recheck system.

5. Check Temperature Control Vents - The vents inside your car are controlled by a cable, electrical servo or vacuum servo. If the temperature blend door is not functioning properly it will cause warm air from the heater to exit the vents. To check this start the car and allow the engine idle, next turn the blower motor speed on low, switch the temperature control from warm to cold while your ear is close to the vents. You should hear the door move inside the heater box as it swings from open to close. If not, insect for a vacuum leak or a shorted motor in the servo, repair the leak or replace the servo motor.

SOURCE: air conditioning not working on dodge intrepid.

I have 2 ideas.

Idea 1: The clutch in your ac compressor could be out.

Idea 2: The ac compressor isn't getting any power. Use test lights on the connectors to the ac compressor to make sure it is getting power. (Test this before trying to change the ac compressor. It is way cheaper to fix a connection than to change the compressor.)

NOTE: ac compressor clutch is not available seperately for this car at discount auto parts stores.

2000 NISSAN 4X4 P/U A/C SYSTEM WILL BLOW COLD WHEN OUTSIDE AIR TEMP IS COOL, WHEN HOT OUTSIDE AIR BLOWS HOT.


your auxillary fan is not working. this fan is responsible for cooling the freon that is being circulated in your cooling system... check if there are any loose wires in front of the engine bay.

the auxillary fan is located right beside your radiator fan.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

You might want to see if it might be low on 134a . Testing gauge can be bought at any auto parts store. Always check your a[c ounces ratio first. Auto parts store can do that. Refer to instructions for proper use. Use proper tools when working with things that are under preasure.

sounds like you have a leak concern if they are adding freon

however, it also sounds like a restriction in the system and/or a defective TXV

When recharging the ac you need to recover the old refridgerent. That means you have to take out all the old 134 and replace with new 134. On the engine sticker under the hood should tell you how many pounds of 134 it takes. When put in the 134 make sure your ac is on high.

I had this same issue happen to me with my heating/cooling unit (among other issues with the fan speed) about 6 times. They replaced the resistor 3 times and its fine. Luckily, the first 5 occurrences were under warranty and the dealer covered the 6th fix. I'm still not happy between this problem and issues 2x with the service engine and service air bags... I only have 26k miles on this thing and bought the truck brand new in Oct 2006.

In cold weather my heating doesn't blow hot air


When your engine thermostat has failed or is sticking open, the engine fluid isn't able to reach a temperature that lets your heater core get hot enough to produce worthwhile heat to blow into the passenger's compartment. It is also not good for your engine to run below design temperature.
If you have a dashboard temp gauge, if your thermostat is stuck open, that gauge will probably stay in the cold area.
I would think that that is the problem, and I would have the thermostat changed (not a very difficult or expensive job).
Hope this helps you.
