Will I get an alert if my A/C fails?

Most of the time you will not get an alert though more modern cars with advanced electronics systems may alert you to a problem with your air conditioning system.

Why does my A/C airflow seem weak?

  • A hose may have come loose
  • The ventilation fan is no good
  • Mold or mildew accumulation in the evaporator core
  • Open seals (core case seals, evaporator core case seals, blower house seals)

Why is my air conditioning not as cold as it was before?

  • You may have a Freon leak
  • Failed blower motor and/or compressor
  • Failed condenser or evaporator
  • Vaccum leaks
  • Failed fuse, relay, switch or other electronic control
