My air conditioner stopped...

My air conditioner stopped working

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level?

Its a new compressor as of 5 months ago so it shouldn't be an issue. It was working one day and now the compressor doesn't engage at all

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mazda?

2007 Mazdaspeed3

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

I took it to 2 mechanics. One said that the compressor wasn't getting any electricity from the alternator. Another said that I had to replace the ambient temperature sensor. I'm trying to find a mechanic that knows what they're doing and if I can't I'll do it myself

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

Just that I've replaced the compressor and clutch this year. So that shouldn't be the problem. The ambient temperature sensor has also been broken for the past few years and the A/C still wokred so I dont understand how that would be a problem

Thank you!

Hi .

There are a few things that will not activate the compressor .

1. low 134a freon level.

2. Magnetic clutch malfunction .

3. Low and high pressure sensor.

4. Evap temp sensor.

5. A/C relay.

6. Malfunction od PCM IG1 signal .

7. Climate control unit ..

So first step i would hook up the A/C manifold meters and check the low and high pressure level's.

If freon is good then the pressure switch.

if all checks out good you will then need to hook up a diagnostic scan tool and check for HVAC malfunction codes .

Even though you said work was done with new compressor etc you still could have any of one of the problems .

most common is low freon level ..

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
