Customer Question
Hi, my air-conditioning has...

Hi, my air-conditioning has just stopped working from one day to the next. 2011 MN Triton 2wd, it stays in a shed it's whole life. Only 25,000 klms on the clock. I've repleced the fuse, no improvement. What could it be??

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

The other one under the dash??

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '11 Mitsubishi?

How do I verify that? I am in Australia too.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just happened, so I replaced the fuse, thinking, it had to be something simple, to be working fine up until last night, then get up today and it is not

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that's it

Could be one of many things.

First thing to check is for gas loss from a condenser or evaporator, etc.

Really best for a licensed A/C tech to look at it.
