Robbins Nissan is happy to help you learn why your vehicle air conditioning quit functioning suddenly.
Your car's air-conditioning stopped working because of a freon leak or a bad compressor. Though these are the most obvious reasons for your air-conditioner not cooling in the vehicle, a bad belt or a dirty cabin air filter may also be the problem. No matter why or how, it's super disappointing when ice-cold air isn't there to battle the hot weather outside. Don't get in a panic, because our experienced technicians will easily resolve these issues and are there to cool off your interior before the first heatwave hits.
If you've seen damp spots in or around your vehicle recently, that could be a result of an air-conditioning leak in your car. For your AC to push cold air into your vehicle, it has to place all the moisture it's absorbed from the outdoors and should leave down the evaporator drain. Another cause could be the AC Refrigerant amount being low which produces an overflow of condensation because the evaporator coils will start to freeze. You should also keep a lookout for faulty seals in the air-conditioner compartment or the AC's air filters if the problem keeps happening.
The most likely reason your air-conditioning stopped cooling is your car's air-conditioning started leaking. Your car's air-conditioning unit needs freon to lower the ambient air temperature and produces needed cold air. Anytime you'll need that cool air, it won't be possible when the freon leak happens. Another reason for your air-conditioning not blowing cold air is because your vehicle is a hybrid. The AC system is powered by the engine, meaning the air-conditioning isn't receiving power if your car is in EV mode and the engine stops running.
If your air-conditioning is turned on and the fan stopped blowing then you might have a defective AC fuse. Fuses help protect components of a vehicle from a power surge and even though it might just need to get repaired, however, if the AC fuse keeps popping then you likely have a much larger problem at hand. A low amount of air-conditioner refrigerant or a possible leak might also be the issue, which our very skilled technicians can repair.
