My air wont move from feet any help
Vacuum leak behind the switch.
We must be getting old. Or to young to remember when cars didn't have A/C lol
What happened to 60mp/h air con? Wind the windows down haha.
Jk my daily must have working A/C
(Edit) or at least remember when A/C was an option not factory fitted standard) lol
I'm just stirring
& try as said, vacuum leak, cracked perished hose 9r more likely hard plastic line come out of plug with multiple lines going into it up under the dash
Hi all, on my '94 VR ute (5.0l manual if anything is different?) I have the vacuum problem that you can't change from the demist position and the vacuum noise isn't there when you turn the dial. Also I am not able to change the heat settting which I thought would be a seperate issue? I adjusted the rod so that it makes contact with a switch at the coldest setting but it makes no difference. The aircon does blow cold but it is not effective as it is fighting the heater. I checked the rubber lines on the back of the switch however they don't seem hard or perished. I do have a V6 VP I can rob parts from if they are the same however what should I change? A picture of the vacuum solenoid would be great also, however I think I have two seperate problems(?). Also she seems to run too hot especially with the aircon on if this indicates anything?
Thanks in advance
mines just gone to hot air too recently
is not nice when your stuck at the lights and every car is relaxing in comfy air cons an i got all windows down
first point of call i think is to see if drip hose is blocked?
a/c blower fan just stopped all fuses and relay good.
could it be the thing near the wiper arms?
Does it work on high only? If it does, means the resistor - the thingy - is shagged. If the fuse n relay are ok, then I would check n see whether there is power at the fan, if so, the blower may be shagged.
Thanks for that.
Not blowing at all.
Do you have a multimeter? I'd check to make sure there's voltage at the blower. If not, then work back from there.
If there is, I'd say the blower is suspect.
My VR ute compressor is not cutting in and out. The engine revs change when I throw the switch but no oscillating is occurring like I think it should. I saw the list of possible AC problems. Should I get a regas and see where the leaks are or should I start by throwing a few parts at it first. My concern is it should ne oscillating I think? Even with no gas I thought it should oscillate, albeit quickly?
Sorry for the late reply waited till I was on holidays.
No multimeter not good with electrician.
Put new resistance in no go.
Is there a relay or fuse I should look at?
The fuse panel in the engine bay has a relay and fuse for the blower. Check these bad boys, you have a bung relay.
Get the system checked. If there is no gas, the compressor wont run. Dont start throwing parts at it, as you may be replacing items unnecessarily.
Most places will re-gas and throw in a dye and then tell you to run the system and bring it back. They'll quickly tell you where the leak is.
Now is it the large covered one or the little one below?
The large one. That has all your main relays and 6 fuses in it. The smaller one is the main fuses for the vehicle. All the relays are labelled, so you should be able to see pretty easy which is which. If your fuse is ok, swap the blower relay with another one and see if it works.
Yeah I was thinking to get it regassed and go from there. I was going by my previous vehicles (non VR Commodores) that had aircon probs where it would cycle still even without gas just that it happened every 2-3 seconds instead of 20-25 seconds like a fully operational system should.
my aircon does everything perfectly works great in every way, but...a/c doesnt get cold anymore
Where in Adelaide are you? There is a bloke at McLaren Vale (Perkins Auto Repairs) who is really good with all mechanical repairs inc air his name is Malcolm he helped me out a lot when I had the Jeep.
Probably just needs to be re-gassed.
