Hello, so does the air flow stop like the fan was shut off or does it just quit cooling like the A/C was shut off?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the air almost completely stops flowing and it gets a little warmer. The sound of the AC remains unchanged. it is still on but the air just stops. I turn it off for 30 min-1 hr and it comes back like normal
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

OK so it's a air flow problem then. If the fan slows down it's most likely a fan motor problem. What model is your Honda? Accord, Civic?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
2006 civic. yeah the sound doesn't change, I still hear the ac like it's on, but the air almost completely stops coming out and what little air does come out is warmer. then i turn off the car for 30 min-1hr and it works again
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
this only happens after 2 hours of driving
Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Thanks, ***** ***** that problem ended up being an A/C performance issue not a fan problem. Let me have a look at my Honda tech site for related info.

sounds good, will stand by
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Another question, the fan sounds like it's working normally but the air flow is greatly reduced?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the fan/motor sounds exactly the same as when the ac is on and it is working fine - just after a couple of hours the air stops blowing out - sounds like it is working but little to no air coming out
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Now I know what is wrong. The compressor is not cycling on and off like it should. The fans will be but the compressor is stuck on. This causes the A/C evaporator to freeze up. Moisture in the air usually sticks to the evaporator and drains out the drain tube on the ground. If the compressor stays on the moisture freezes on the evaporator restricting air flow. After sitting it thaws out and works again.

Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

There are 2 things that will cause this. The compressor relay or the inside thermostat. Most of the time it's the compressor relay probably 90% of the time. It can also cause the battery to drain if it sticks on after the engine is shut off like overnight or after a few days.

Great! - what do I do to fix it?
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

The relay is a dealer part and should be under $20. I have included the relay location in the under-hood fuse box. It just pulls out and the new one plugs right in.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

There are 3 possible relay's depending on where your Civic was made. Canada, US, or Japan. The dealer will need your VIN to look up the correct relay.

Thank you, ***** ***** have any other questions feel free to ask. Please rate or accept my answer so the site will credit me.

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.

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

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
