Customer Question

2006 Kia Sorento just blows warm air. Mechanic says the switch is not going on so car needs new compressor. He says you can't just buy a switch, and says it's connected to the compressor. It sounds like he is not being truthful. Do you know if this is true?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The air just stopped blowing cold and just seems to be blowing outside air.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Kia Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If this is the field coil assembly that engages the clutch on the ac compressor this can be replaced separately.Kia has released a bulletin on if this coil fails that it can be replaced separately.If you can tell me for sure which switch this is I can look it up to be sure.The bulletin for the filed coil is KT2007081504.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
