Bob Howard Acura invites you to understand why your car or truck ac is not cooling.
Your vehicle’s AC not working is most likely caused by a freon leak or a bad compressor. Though these are the easy to spot reasons that the AC isn’t working inside your vehicle, it could also be something as simple as a bad belt or a dirty cabin air filter. Regardless of why or how, when you are expecting the sweet relief of ice-cold air it is incredibly disappointing anytime it doesn’t turn on. Don’t get in a panic, because our experienced auto technicians know what to spot and are ready to get your car ready before the first heat wave arrives.
The most likely reason the AC isn’t working is because the vehicle’s AC is leaking. Your vehicle’s air-conditioner system needs a freon to cool the ambient air temperature which produces some refreshing cold air. Anytime there is a freon leak on your car there is no way to cool the air. Another source for your air-conditioning not producing cold air is that your vehicle is a hybrid. The air-conditioner system uses the engine power, your AC isn’t getting any power if your car is using EV mode and the engine isn’t running.
If your AC is turned on and the fan isn’t blowing then you might have a blown air-conditioning fuse. Fuses protect components of a car from a power surge and even though it might just have to get replaced, if your air-conditioning fuse continues to pop then it’s possible there could be a much larger issue. A low level of air-conditioning refrigerant or a possible leak might also be the issue, which our highly skilled technicians can look at.
If your air-conditioner starts leaking, you could easily tell by random damp spots around your vehicle or puddles under your car when it’s parked. When your AC is producing cold air into your car, it needs to place all the moisture it’s absorbed from the outdoors and should go through the evaporator drain pipe. Another cause might be the AC Refrigerant level being low which produces an overflow of condensation since the evaporator coils will start to freeze. You need to keep a lookout for faulty seals in the air-conditioner compartment or the AC’s air filters if the issue continues to occur.
