if compressor isnt running it could be a multiple of things, one reason is that there isnt enough juice in the system, how much did you charge it? also charging too much i hear can cause problems,I charged the system a few weeks ago to cure the problem of hot air, passenger side. Now the fan ran intermidently Now doesn`t run at all. Fuses (3) are ok. Compressor is NOT running. Any ideas???
I'm in Alabama and it is HOT here too. I would almost bet $$ it is the final stage unit or blower motor resistor. Pretty easy to replace and a $80 part. Go to the nearest dealer and buy one! You can get them cheaper online, but since I know how the south is in the summer another $20 is well worth not de-hydrating in your car!I put a big can in. It has been running fine for a few weeks since. If I put the temp up to over 70 the fan comes on. but the compressor does not. I`m in florida, today was over 95 out side
me neither, i havent heard of that yet...The climate control system on our 2000 318i is playing up also. It blows cold air on both driver and passenger sides however on the driverside only it blows hot air to the feet.
Fan control speeds still work and we had the gas level checked today and it was fine.
Whether the system is on auto or directed to the windscreen it doesnt rectify the hot air to drivers feet. Can the climate control system be reset? I'm yet to read of a problem such as this
How'd you get it for that price? I paid over $70? Quality item or Pep Boys special?I replaced the blower motor resistor . Worked fine for about 1 hour , now back to intermittent fan. Are these replacement parts reliable. It was $39.95. Should I be looking for another problem??
WOW!!!!!! I called all around and only place i was able to find it a bit cheaper than $85, was on ebay, but after shipping would of been the same..I replaced the blower motor resistor . Worked fine for about 1 hour , now back to intermittent fan. Are these replacement parts reliable. It was $39.95. Should I be looking for another problem??
