I could use some help on my 2006 Air Conditioning?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, its my first time on this site and let's see how this goes.....

 

My AC has been working fine and then I am out on a hot day and my AC stops working and won't work anymore. The vent blowers work fine. I figured I needed to add some refrigerant, went down to the store, purchased some (with a pressure gauge), started the car, hooked up the new can, and saw the low side pressure was in the red zone, i.e., pressure too high. Any ideas how I might get my AC running again. I'd appreciate some help :)  Bryan

Contrary to advertising BS, just pumping freon into your system is not a good idea! You need to have your system evacuated, oiled, and then recharged. Return the junk kit and get it done right. I don't want to pay either, but I'm bringing my car to the stealer for this exact service in a couple of days.

When you hooked up the can, was the a/c ON? The compressor needs to be running when you connect the can. Otherwise the static pressure of the a/ c is like ~80 PSI. I agree with Bobby though it's best to get the a/c check out by a shop as there could be many other components that can fail. Have you checked all the relevant fuses?

Hi Ahsai, yes I did have the A/C on full blast and the pressure on the low side was high and in the red zone.  Thanks for the input.

Most likely your compressor is not runnng then. Can you see if the clutch engages at all?
