#8 of 13 A/C malfunction

Also, one reason why A/C may stop blowing cold is a clogged orifice tube which is located in the hard line going to the evaporator.
#9 of 13 burned electric ac clutch
May 24, 2011 (7:43 pm)
i have two 626's a '99 and a '98 both v6's. i am pretty savvy with wrenches but had overheating probs in standing trafficon my '99. So I replaced passenger side fan and was fine for a while til the new fan burned fuses and burn out! So spent money at a good shop who replaced both fans after they replaced fan assy at there cost....because they burn new fans out too, was told my ac clutch was to blame for high amp drain. new ac pump was quoted at $1100! Question... why does madza design a system that fails like this? i replace my ac pump and accumulator and oriface tube myself with advanced auto parts for $310 then took it back to shop for diagnostic and evac and new freeon fill. saved money
#10 of 13 AC Problems with 1991 Mazda 626 DX

I have checked the coolant and it is fine. The compressor comes on, but it only blows hot air. Everything works, but it only blows hot air. Can anybody give me a list of any possible solutions to this problem. During the winter months the heater doesn't blow any heat. Once the engine heats up, the vents throw out enough heat to keep you warm.

The AC on my 626 is working, but it isn't working.
The unit is fully charged... the compressor works when manually jumped... it will then blow cold air.
There is nothing in the computer code information that gives any clues.
There is some sort of relay or switch not doing it's job. Has anyone else run into this? I don't want to chase the proverbial needle in the haystack unless I have to.
Thanks in advance.
#12 of 13 There is a relay

There is a relay, I had mine replaced while it was still under warranty. The relays are under the hood on the drivers side. I think there is a relay for one of the cooling fans that runs constantly when the A/C is running. If it goes out it prevents the a/c from turning on. Most of them are the same and can be swapped around to test.

I checked the relay by swapping with the horn relay (same relay). When the horn still worked, I knew that the relay was good.
There are two switches (one high pressure and one low pressure - I forget which is which), but one is on the back of the accumulator. That was the culprit.
