I have a 2006 Pilot with the AC blowing hot. I tried to run

Customer Question

I have a 2006 Pilot with the AC blowing hot. I tried to run a charge on it, but the gauge told me pressure was full. I checked the compressor clutch relay switch and it's working. The compressor is engaging. What should I try next?

Check to make sure the fans are running and the fuses are good for the fans.

The fan works. Is there a fan for the AC that I should look for instead?
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.

There should be two fans, but they are right next to each other behind the radiator/condensor. Are you positive that the compressor is engaging?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was not 100 percent sure that it was engaging and a Chevy mechanic friend looked at it with me and confirmed that it was, indeed, engaged. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to look much further than that.

Ok,, if the compressor is engaging that tells you that the system is charged enough to run. If the fan starts running when you turn the AC on that also tells you that the system is working properly. If both of those things happen, one of the AC lines should be hot, and the other should be extremely cold. This tells you that the system is actually doing what it is supposed to do. If this is not the case, then you are looking at something else such as an air mix door inside the vehicle.

ok let me check that

Could it be the cabin air filter? Wanted to float that. Somebody suggested that to me.
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.

If the cabin air filter was clogged it would restrict the air flow but it would not cause the AC to blow warm air.
