Beck & Masten Buick GMC North is pleased to help you know why your vehicle air conditioning quit working suddenly.
Your vehicle’s AC not working is because of a failing compressor or a freon leak. Though these causes might be the simple to spot reasons that the air-conditioning isn’t cooling inside the car, it might be something as simple as a dirty cabin filter or a bad compressor belt. No matter how or why it’s super disappointing when ice-cold air isn’t there to combat hot weather outside. Don’t get in a panic, because our experienced technicians know what to look for and are there to cool off your interior before the first heatwave hits.
If you’ve noticed any damp spots in or around your car recently, that could be because of an air-conditioner leak in your vehicle. When your AC is producing cold air inside your car, it needs to place all of that moisture it absorbs from the outdoors and flows down the evaporator drain. One more cause might be the AC Refrigerant amount being too low which leads to the evaporator coils freezing up and an overflow of condensation. You need to keep a lookout for faulty seals in the air-conditioner compartment or the air-conditioner’s air filters if this problem continues to occur.
The most likely reason the air-conditioning isn’t working is your vehicle’s air-conditioning is leaking. Your vehicle’s AC unit uses freon to lower the ambient air temperature which creates needed cold air. When there is a freon leak on your car there is no way to cool the air. Another reason that your air-conditioning isn’t blowing cold air is that the vehicle is a hybrid. The AC system is powered by the engine, so if your vehicle is in EV mode then the engine will stop running and won’t power the AC.
If your AC is on and the fan isn’t blowing then you might have a blown air-conditioning fuse. These fuses help protect vehicle components from a possible power surge and while it might just need to be repaired, if your air-conditioner fuse keeps popping then it’s possible you have a much larger issue. There’s also a chance that the car’s air-conditioner Compressor might be affected by a low level of air-conditioner refrigerant or a possible leak that needs to be repaired.
