Hello, Eddie here and I will do my best to help. So you get no air flow out of the front blower motor? what about if you just select the vents without AC? Do you get any air flow then?

Does the A/C compressor cycle on at all? or does it not engage?

Alright, I believe the software in the climate control system has gotten jumbled up, or the control head itself may be at fault. You don't happen to have an advanced type scanner to communicate with the climate control system do you?

I do not
Mechanic for Acura: Edward, Service Technician replied 1 year ago

I understand. That is the first thing I would do is check codes, you are aware 2014 Honda has a 4/50 warranty correct? I would assume whatever is wrong with it would be covered under factory warranty.

Unless it's impact damage or flood damage or something along those lines.

I do. Unfortunately I can not get it in for a week and was hoping it might be something easy... a fuse perhaps.
Mechanic for Acura: Edward, Service Technician replied 1 year ago

I understand completely, Do you have the owners manual by chance? Fuses start on page 469 with their respective locations. There is a fuse for the front blower motor, a 40 amp.

I do and did check that one. It seems fine. Are a couple others labeled fan this or that.
Mechanic for Acura: Edward, Service Technician replied 1 year ago

You can check down through the list there, If it says heater/blower or anything with AC on it, I would check it.

If it is not a fuse, then it's likely something along the lines of what I mentioned previously with the Climate Control Software or the Control head itself. Disconnect the neg. battery cable for 5 minutes, then reinstall the negative cable. Sometimes that can clear a code out and restore functionality. Worth a shot if you can't get it in for week.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
