Air Conditioner stopped working.

2002 95 Arc v-6 132K. The air conditioner worked on one side only (passenger) and heat was coming out the drivers side. Now heat is coming out of both sides. Antifreeze tank is full. I just installed a new radiator before this happened. Anybody have any idea's what the problem is?? Thank you. C.

There is a way to use the ACC climate unit to run self diagnostics and will give you a code pointing to what is wrong. Look also at the Blend door fix for the 9-5, its a common problem with plastic parts.

AC specific, it could be low on Freon, AC compressor, wiring. Do you hear/feel/see when the AC compressor kicks on?

Air conditioner IS working but....

Yes the AC does come on because now the cold air is coming out of the passenger side defrost vent ONLY and the drivers defrost vent is hot. and the other vents do not work, nothing is coming out of any of them. The blower is on and is very strong. I read somewhere it's most likely a door is stuck closed. Any idea what door is stuck and how to get to it. I really don't feel like taking the whole dash apart. Thanks again.

I just got the car back from the shop. They Diagnostics the AC and recal. $148.00. They told me it was on set. I drove away and put the AC on, all the vents are working fine but the cold air is only coming from the passenger side vents. The Freon is fine. The AC compressor is on. I'll bring it back and tell them it's the drivers side door. Thanks Drew and Oliver. Peace.

If the A/C is humming but the fan is not spinning, find yourself a long skinny stick. Gently slide the stick through the fan grate and give one of the fan blades a gentle push, to see if the fan will spin. If the fan takes off on its own and keeps going, you very likely have a bad start capacitor.

You see, the capacitor is there to give a boost to the fan motor upon startup. A capacitor stores power in a roll of electrically charged sheets of material. When the capacitor is called to action, it is supposed to release its energy and give the fan a sort of electrical kick in the pants. If the capacitor is shot, the fan can't quite get going from just the 120 volts the motor supplies to it. You and your stick just took over the job of the start capacitor.
