AC blowing hot air. Mechanic says it could be the Ipdm and they cannot easily get to it.
JA: How is the air flow? Have you checked the hoses?
Customer: Air flow is good. No leak in system either.
JA: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting 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.

Have you mechanic check the scan data in the Body Control Module and in the Engine Control Module and see if it shows A/C switch or A/C signal or A/C request or A/C relay on or off . If the signal is there and the clutch is not engaging then you likely have a failed clutch relay and if that is the case the IPDM has to be replaced as the relay is not service separate.

Thanks. Where is the ipdm located in my car? The mechanic said it would be nine hours of labor just to get to it? Seems like a lot. I've seen some posts that suggest it's behind the vattery

Im not sure why hes telling you its hard to get at, the IPDM is the under hood fuse panel located in the engine compartment. See the link below.
