Thanks! Have a 2017 Fit, 600 miles. AC cools fine, but once interior is somewhat cool, the AC compressor
seems to stop. Fan continues. This is fine on middling-hot days, but not on very hot days. The air is quite cool out of the vents, at the start, but like I say, the cooling shuts down. On my 2016 Fit and 2005 Accord, etc., the AC would continue to put out iced air if I were moving at highway speeds. Any thoughts?
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked for a leak in the radiator
Customer: Coolant level is fine and no apparent leaks. Just back from dealer service who says that what I describe above is "built-in" climate control feature for all Honda's of 2017. I found your site in just wanting to verify the service tech
JA: What is the model of your '17 Honda?
Customer: LX, auto transmission
JA: Are you fixing your LX yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, I'm not a repair person. I have an independent garage mechanic who I have used on Hondas for 30 years, but I haven't brought this to him. He refers me to the dealer for AC problems.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, this looks about it. It's still quite a new car!
