and labor. Is it a dealership? Most dealerships probably wouldn't even charge that much!
When I leave the a/c button off, it's usually for at least 15 minutes or so. But if that doesn't help you, there may be a different problem. Haven't had too many problems with this vehicle (has a lot less recalls than Ford Focus did) and been very happy with gas mileage (who'd have thought in 01 that gas prices would be skyhigh right now!)
Good luck and keep posting.

Help. My 2000 Daewoo Lanos was running fine. I took it in for an oil change and general servicing, including brakes. Two days after I picked it up it died while I was driving about 25 miles per hour.it I took it back for a complete diagnostic at the mechanics recommendation. He called and told me it needed a cam senor some wiring repairs etc. and it would could about $1,500. I told him I would rather spend my money and buy a newer car. I picked up the car and went to a dealership to buy a new car. The car wouldn't start. It is sitting at the dealership. I don't know mechanics. Is it worth $1,500. to tow the car and have it repaired? Should I just leave the car. I own a new car now.

i thought so myself that is why i have made an appointment with a highly recommended garage for them to check it out,i can use that to make a down payment on another car it was a daewoo dealership that gave me that quote and i told them to not touch the air condtioner we just had a compressor installed in another car of ours and it did not cost but alittle over $700 with labor,if i did not owe anything on this daewoo i would sell it,will let you know what this other garage says when i take it next week for them to check it out

The other vehicle's a/c repair cost $700 at the same dealership or a different one?
I think I would have looked for another dealership that has a mechanic who knows daewoos. Sometimes dealerships who no longer sell daewoos still have mechanics who know how to diagnose and fix daewoos.

This website may really be intended for mechanics (shadetree or certified) and they might not be too happy about addressing a lot of customer questions but maybe it won't hurt for one or two people to ask when all other options are exhausted.">link title

this mechanic is at another dealership that came highly recommended by our mechanics we have working on our cars we asked them to work on the daewoo but they said they did not feel comfortable with foreign cars so they told us about these people they said if they cannot fix it it could not be fixed. if and when i get rid of this car i will never buy anything except an american made if there is such a thing anymore

1999 Daewoo Leganza. I tried to turn on car and it made a noise like the engine was running and while I was turning the key. (like a grinding noise that happens when car is on and you turn the ignition key) The car will not fire over. Their is power and the serpintine belt turns slightly but it will not fire up. My friend seems to think it could be a fuel pump. I tried cleaning carborator but still nothing. What could it be?
