Bob Howard Buick GMC invites you to understand why your vehicle air conditioning is not working.
Your vehicle’s AC stopped working most likely because of a failing compressor or a freon leak. While these causes are the obvious reasons that the AC isn’t working inside the car, it might be anything as simple as a bad compressor belt or a dirty cabin air filter. Regardless of why or how, it can be super disappointing when ice-cold air isn’t there to battle hot weather outside. Don’t sweat it though, because our well-versed technicians know what to look for and are there to get your vehicle ready long before the first heatwave arrives.
The most likely reason your AC stopped working is the car’s AC is leaking. The vehicle’s air-conditioning unit needs freon to lower the ambient air temperature and creates needed cold air. Anytime you want that cool air, it won’t be possible if the freon leak occurs. Another source for your AC not producing cold air is because your car is a hybrid. The air-conditioner system is powered by the engine, the air-conditioning isn’t getting any power if your car is using EV mode and the engine isn’t running.
If your air-conditioner is turned on and the fan isn’t working then you may have a blown air-conditioner fuse. Fuses help protect car components from a possible power surge and even though it might just need to be replaced, however, if your AC fuse keeps popping then it’s possible you have a larger problem at hand. A low level of air-conditioning refrigerant or a possible leak might also be the cause, which our highly skilled technicians can repair.
If you’ve noticed any damp spots around or in your vehicle recently, that might be because of an air-conditioner leak in your vehicle. For any air-conditioner to pump cold air inside your car, it has to place all the moisture it absorbs from outside and should leave through the evaporator drain. Another cause might be the AC Refrigerant level being too low which leads to a buildup of condensation because the evaporator coils will freeze up. You should also keep an eye out for faulty seals in the air-conditioning compartment or the air-conditioner’s air filters if this problem keeps happening.
