#63 of 77 Rear Defroster and A/C Switch
Jan 05, 2010 (10:39 am)
I have a 2007 Nissan Versa with a little over 50k miles. A few months ago my rear defroster stopped working. I took it to Nissan and they told me that they would need to do diagnostic and it could take all day. I passed. Now just recently when you turn the heat and use the fan, the A/C wont turn off. It used to be able to turn off by pressing the button, but now it stays on. Has anyone ran into this problem or knows how to fix this or what is wrong? Thanks

Mine is exactly in the same predicament. I just turned 50K and the a/c switch stays on; cannot turn it off. Will go off if I turn the blower off, but that's it. Have not contacted the dealership, yet. Trying to resolve by myself.

The a/c and rear defroster are on the same system. You will have to replace this part. Mine quit when it was still under warranty and it took 4 months to get parts. All of this was in the winter when I needed it.

Hello everyone. I bought a new 2007 Nissan Versa in FL and you know the A/C is one of the most important features when living in FL ?? so... anyways after I drive the bugger for around 20 minutes with the A/C on the blower can be heard running but no air flow is coming out of the vents no matter whaere you select it to come out. There is a old stank of a frozen freezer coming out too ! If you turn it off and let it thaw then the air flow continues to operate normally. Took it to the dealers once , could not fix it. Took it in again and they did not fix it but said they would call Tek Line at Nissan, a month later no calls (( except for the salesperson trying to sell me one after I already bought it )) I took it back and now its been around 4 days no word. Anyone else seen this ?

for your troubles then I would take them up on it. Is that what you meant by "except for the salesman trying to sell me one after I already bought it"?
It's under Warranty so they have to make it right for you. With Florida's heat hopefully its sooner than later.

A salesman from the same dealership must received a sales tip that I was interested in one so they contacted me again. It has been a week and a day since I took it in and I have not received any calls back yet. Maybe should of bought a HONDA !
I am patient and I guess we will see, and your right the dealership has to make it right , its just WHEN. I am not going to hag them to death by calling and calling but one would expect a call back for status on a brand new car. Playing wait and see. Generally Nissan are pretty good cars I know its the first year so that expalins it , I am sure they will work onit and make it right; hopefully right ?

Chris, I have had my versa since July and living in PHX, where its maditory to have AC, I never had a problem with the AC unit, in fact I was nice and cool the whole time this past summer, we run the AC 24 hrs a day durning May thru Sept. Take it back to another a dealer, and remember this, Do not be nasty to the service advisors, they can make getting your car fix a breeze or make it a pain in the a**...

Today was thefirst daysince I picked up my Versa that's been warm enough to test the AC, and pretty much no cooling was going on at all AC light would come on, but as far as I could tell, the compressor wasn't even running.
So I stopped into the dealer and described what I was seeing. They were able to take it right in and found the issue. (I LOVE my Nissan dealership and have been dealing with them since 1979!)
When the car was assembled and the low pressure line was attached to the compressor, the o-ring apparently got pinched or torn and the seal was compromised, resulting in the refrigerant leaking completely out. With no refrigerant, the compressor disables itself as a safety issue. (The refigerant also acts as the lube for the compressor system.)So my observation of the compressor not running was also correct!
A little over an hour later, out I go with a car that WILL keep me cool as the weather heats up.
2300 miles and counting

which dealer in FL did you get your versa?
has the problem been fixed?
by the way in FL there's car shops where you can take your car and they will take your manufacture warranty. If your Nissan agency is taking to answer you maybe you should take it some place else. I also leave in FL and I don't have AC in my current car. It sucks, that's one of the reasons I am getting a new car (versa sl) within a month. good luck!
