Hello members, I have read all the messages and solutions about similar
problem but not quite the one I have.

Mine blows ambient temperature air anytime of the day.

It doesn't blow cold air, either I lower the temperature
or manually turn the A/C on.

Few of the discussion talked about changing Blow Motor Resister
that fixed the problem but seems that it did not even blow anything
at all to start with.

Anyone in this forum fixed your problem like mine by changing
Blow Motor Resister??

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Exactly the Same Issue.

Hello!

I have exactly the same issue. Dealer says that the compressor needs to be replaced. It is covered under the HondaCare Extended Warranty that I have.

Thank you..

So... it is a compressor.. :frown:

I was hoping that can be fixed with blow motor Resistor.

I read some discussion about "A/C Compressor troubleshooting"
but was way too technical with xx ohm and stuff.

Thanks.

Blower resistor is for the variable speeds of the blower, not the actual operation on the A/C side of the HVAC. There is a better chance that you have a freon leak. My guess is rear A/C lines leaking.

however

Thanks for the reply but...

I have checked the pressure that
was ok though...

I am in my driverside seat
turn the fan on-- works just file
lower the temperature-- still blows the ambient temp. air
manually turn on and off the A/C with temperature control--
still blows the warm air..

Cheapeat but guaranteed quality compressor with
all the hardware may cost around $375 on the web.

It may be worth the shot???

Please advise.

Hobiestorm,

I would not say that. But, considering that it is the dealer and someone else is paying the bill, I think that they took the easy way out.

Thank you guys..

If I am going to a dealer...

Would they charge $1000's for this kind of repair??

My warranty expired and did not buy the extended warranty.

Lucked out..

Hobiestorm,

They said that if I was paying, it would have cost about $1,000 to $1,400. If you read the link that was posted, it may have some hints that someone mechanically inclined (which I am not) to figure out what maybe wrong.

Troubleshooting AC requires skills and tools. Anyway, in the majority of the cases, it is either:

1. R134a Leak.
- Common item is the Ac Condesor gets hit by rocks. The preventive measure is to install the "Plastic Gutter Guard" (search forum for the posts I made a few years ago).

- Did you check your pressure using a pressure gauge, which you can buy at any autoparts store for $15-20. You should own this tool anyway, (it is as easy as checking tire pressure):

Interdynamics GBM2CS - R-134a Recharge & Measuring Kit | O'Reilly Auto Parts

2. Electromechanical issue:
- My Stator failed at 36K miles! Dealer charged $600, but I negotiated a good-will, so I paid only 1/2 of that or $300.

- Since then, we investigated this further and you should see the thread by "geobrick" from June 11, 2011.
If you do it this way, then you don't have to remove the AC compressor. You only pays for the Stator and Clutch.

Regardless, accurate diagnosis is the key.
