Re: a/c problems

what seems to be the problem? if your a/c is not going on with the a/c on pop the hood and look at the compressor. is the clutch spinning? look at the pulley, if you look at the side of it you should see it spinning. if it's just a cold/hot issue than go to autozone spend like $9 on a gauge and check your level. you may need to recharge your a/c. if you have compressor problems and need to replace it i have a 4th gen A/C Compressor FS. it's yours for $45+ship. hope this helps and welcome to the site. PM if you need the compressor.

Re: a/c problems

Re: a/c problems

Did you check the connections at the compressor as well? There are also a few other tests you can do - I can't think of them off the top of my head unfortunately but when I get back home this weekend I can look up all the tests you do for a non functioning compressor, if that will help you out any
