Q: The A/C quit.

asked by on

The AC pump and fluid were replaced. The controls seem to be the problem and the AC won't kick on. Fuses have been checked. Do I need to go to a dealer or ?

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The problem may be a cycling switch or an A/C compressor clutch problem. The system would need to be tested for power to the compressor coming from the controls inside the truck. You do not need to go to the dealer, a certified mechanic can come to you and perform the diagnosis of your A/C to accurately assess the problem.
