AC Help or Opinion

SidBrook on Mon June 14, 2010 8:14 PM User is offlineView users profile

Year: 2001
Make: Honda
Model: Accord
Pressure Low: 95
Country of Origin: United States

Hey guys,

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a 2001 Honda Accord Coupe. The AC will no longer turn on. The Compressor is turning. If I turn the AC on and crank the setting to maximum, hot air will eventually blow out from the vents. Thinking that I need to recharge, I put a gauge on the Low Port Side and the reading is 95. From what I remember, that is way too high. Any thoughts? I really want to avoid putting a lot of money into this car. Any chance this is something simple that I missed?

Thanks

If no air at all comes out of the vents, the problem is with the blower under the dash, not the refrigeration system. Pressure of 95 is good when compressor is not turning.

Hey mk378,

Thank you for answering. I didn't post everything I should have. The reading for the Low Side is when the Compressor is turning. Also, I used to do repairs to my old Camaro and Dart. Is the blower something that can easily be handled on a Honda Accord?

Thanks again.

So the blower does not run all the time when it should? Start by measuring the voltage at the motor with the key on and the switch at high. If you have 12 volts, the motor is bad. If not, I think it is like a Civic with a power transistor that commonly fails.

No, the blower will only work with the setting cranked all the way up - Otherwise, nothing. I will check out the voltage and go from there. Thank you again mk378.

Are you SURE that the center of the AC compressor is actually turning, and not just the pulley ????
