AC is not working Inspection $96.46 - $106.46 Get a Quote

Hi there, check the A/C relay for being stuck in the "On" position. Relay contacts degrade over time and use, and can stick together when burned. The result would be the A/C light staying on, even though you press the button to turn the A/C off. It is also possible the button switch itself has failed in the "on" mode.

I would recommend having a A/C inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
