air conditioner does not come on immediately

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

The car has to run for about 2 minutes before the air conditioner will start

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: OK! The Toyota Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?

It is a 2009 hybrid camry

the dealership replaced the servomotor at a cost of $550. then they said that was hiding another problem with the ac amplifier which is going to be another $500 to fix. I wonder if they are scamming me.
Toyota Mechanic: cloe0626, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

it is highly possible that it is a problem with the ac amplifier nut i would have them check the resistor first
