Q: Heat working, but AC doesn't

asked by on

The heat in my car works, but my AC does not.

The AC on this car is known to have one or more of many possible failures from the compressor, from lines leaking, to control module problems. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, do a thorough AC diagnostic check and give you a quote to repair the system. There are too many possibilities on this one to give a good diagnosis without checking it first.
