Quote I started the car and opened the hood and saw that the compressor was running for the ac even if I have the button in the off position. Also the center info center (where the time is displayed and the ambient temp) displays ac when the button is on and the ac light is off on the upper center console when the ac is off.[b] I&39m not sure I understand but if the defrost isn&39t on (NOT in The 2
Quote I&39m not sure I understand but if the defrost isn&39t on (NOT in The 2 right-most selector knob settings) and the AC buttonlight is also off the AC compressor should be off. (Like in the pic above...) You can also turn the fan to the &390&39 position to disable the AC. The AC text indicator in the message center should follow the light in the AC button. (Light offno AC indicator) The compressor
QUOTE (Brandini May 29 2008 1015 AM) Quote Any vent settings clockwise of noon will run the AC.[b] Yea i can turn it just to vent or floor or ventfloor and the compressor will kick on and off every 30 sec or so. I&39m going to the dealership on Monday so I&39ll keep everyone updated. I have a warranty until July so hopefully it&39ll just cost me gas and time. What do you think would make the compressor turn on Could it just be a simple sensor of some sort Should the warranty cover it
Discussions with others seem to indicate that the recirc door actuator has failed. The actuator is an onoff type with electronic feedback system. If the actuator has failed with the feed back system it has the capability to stop the power going to the actuator motor to prevent further damage. Also the fail safe position for the recirc door is fresh air to prevent window fogging. Not sure if this will
If your air position selector is ON front windshield defrost or front windshield defrost floor the recirc is locked out and the AC compressor will be ON to help the defrost. If you try it with the position selector to the normal vents do the recir work and the AC compressor stop
Im having the same issue in my Wifes 05. No recirc. button and the compressor is running always. Any solutions
When troubleshooting are all modes being tested If the HVAC is set to floor does the air push out of the bottom I would think if the HVAC is stuck in Defrost the AC compressor is going to run all the time. If the air is switching as the HVAC is put into different modes then the actuator would be working right
What kind of car What year V6 Automatic Climate Control QUOTE (mkeenan4 Jun 25 2009 0127 PM) Quote I&39m having trouble shutting off my AC compressor and using the recirc function for max ac. I&39ve tried cycling the button and placing the air flow direction knob in every single position and the ac compressor still runs. The only way to stop this is to turn the fan to 0. Also I&39m not able to select
You may have enough refrigerant. I think that mazdaFord screwed up and put too large of a pulley on the AC compressor. The AC really doesnt kick in until you are over 1500rpms. At least with the 6-speed ATX I run under 1500rpms quite a bit. If Im at a light Ill pop it in to neutral to let it idle up a bit. Then it stays cool. Or if Im doing 40mph in 6th gear Ill change it to manual mode and drop to 5th to get the RPMs up. HTH BP
If you checked the system and was zero you have to have it serviced. The system has a certain amount of special oil in it to lubricate the comprssor sometimes you can find the leak by looking for an oil seep at a connection or the compressor shaft behind the clutch. The condenser located in front of the radiator is exposed to flying stones is a possibility. Like suggested they can service the system
Its your compressor clutch. Pretty common for them to go out. Has to be replaced (clutch assembly) no fixing it.
ok so i jumped out the pressure sensor and my compressor comes on like normal. so clearly its a leak and not the compressor. im gona try and find a leak test kit and try and find the problem.

Just used mine today. It gets really cold within about 4-5 minutes. However I do turn my compressor on for at least 15 minutes every month to keep it from loosing charge. Outside temps today were reading (on amb setting) 97 degrees. My car is titanium with the black cloth. Tint is 32%.
This thread is worthless if you don&39t look at locations... Someone up in oregon or on the coast where it MIGHT be 90ish... with cool winds... is going to be a lot different than... say.. myself where it was 110 here .. no wind.. and you could swim in the heatsmog... FYI... The AC works best when the engine is at like 3000 rpms.. if you idle the vehicle... the compressor isn&39t being worked as hard
to try to straighten out and made it rub even worse during driving. After about 3 weeks a tiny pin hole wore thru and BURST while driving down the highway. You would not believe the size of the cloud of smoke that expensive synthetic oil can make when sprayed directly on a header pipe or how low your heart can sink when you know your engines precious life blood is rapidly going bye bye. I lost 3.5
Thanks for the post especially the step by step instructions. I have what (hopefully) may be the same problem on a 2003 mazda 6. I went to a mechanic and after a few seconds he looked at it and said it was the air conditioning compressor - especially because it happens when the AC is engaged. I came here to see if there was another possibility. Ill give this a try.

I have noticed some guys select outside air to cool their cars that doesnt work to bad at high highway speeds but not in slow traffic if that is your case go to recirc. Think about it like this it is much easier to cool 80 degree cabin air then 100 degree out side air. Your center vent discharge air in recirc mode should be about 45 degrees. Your home or apartment uses recirculated air. If that is
QUOTE (mazda6sMtx Nov 27 2008 0555 PM) Quote Not only is the coolant reservoir in the way but most cars have the ABS system there as well if you remove both of those you would have no problem. I was thinking of putting the Supercharger where my AC used to be.[b] Ford beat you to the punch there. On one of the Mercury Cougar S concept cars they mounted an Eaton M90 blower in place of the air conditioning compressor.
I really wish that I could walk down to the garage and check this stuff out myself. That&39ll have to wait until next weekend. BTW I wonder if the ProCharger for the Focus will fit It bolts over the AC compressor but requires a ton of room... QUOTE (84FordMan Nov 27 2008 0557 PM) Quote Ford beat you to the punch there.

AUTO HAVAC is a typo. What he meant was AUTO HVAC which is a different way of saying Automatic Climate Control. If you have automatic climate control there will be a temperature sensor in one of the ducts that tells the system how hot or cold that the air is and weather or not to turn on the heat or AC. Your engine coolant level wont affect your ACs performance. Engine coolant is only used for heat.
Are they really necessary Ive had mazdas and Hondas my whole life. The 626 was 15 years old when totaled. My current Miata is 8 years old. The Accord was 10 years old when sold. They had some minor stuff such as CV joints and brakes and air conditioning compressors go bad but all in all not much of a problem. I hear about leaky seals gear shavings and other problems here and wonder how well the Jeep
