Acura Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Sir or Madam, welcome. I'm acramstr. And I will be assisting you today.Check for popwer to the compressor field coil. We see these fail all the time on this model. You can unplug the coil at the connector behind the pulley and check for power with the a/c on. also check the resistance of the coil when it is HOT and see if it is high. Here is the test. If there is anything else I can help you with let me know.
Thanks for your reply. I'll check sometime this week and will let you know. Also I forgot to mention that the A/C blow out the hot air only. Do you think could it be a A/C Compressor relay?
Do you have the instruction for how to get to field coil? I was thinking about remove the tire on passenger side to get to the field coil.
You can get to it through the wheel well and I have done this this way before. The biggest problem you will have is removing the snap rings holding the clutch together . They are a tight fit and regular snap ring pliers wont always open them enough to get them out. So be prepared for a little bit of struggle there. Acura has a special tool for this that makes it easier but it still can be hard . use a 3 jaw puller to pull the clutch off . Here is the instruction from the manual showing how to replace it.
