Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
What is the temperature outside when this occurs?
Also what is the temperature that you have selected on the A/C display when this happens?
This only happens when first starting the car and driving? It doesn't happen once the car is warmed up correct?
Have you ever had an A/C evaporator service preformed on this car?
This is usually an indication that the A/C compressor isn't ready to operate. It will prevent A/C compressor and blower motor from coming on until it senses it is ready. Does this condition only occur when the climate is set to auto? or does this happen when not in auto too?
OK, some delay is normal when in Auto mode, but 8 miles till it came on sounds unacceptable. I believe an inspection of the blower motor and its circuit board is called for. I believe that some thing may be wrong with the blower motor circuit board. Earlier in the conversation I had asked if you had had an A/C evaporator service done to this car, the reason I asked about this is this service can cause moisture /liquid to drip on to the blower motor and its circuit board, causing a problem on the circuit board. I wonder If some other type of moisture , or rain some how dripped down on to the blower motor circuit board. I believe removing the blower motor and inspecting may result in find some thing is wrong with it.
