#8 of 11 2002 t&c a/c stays on
Jan 05, 2010 (9:50 am)
I have a 2002 t&c limited. I live in Sacramento,ca. and i have noticed that the a/c compressor has been staying on(there is a puddle of water where the evap. coil is loacated) even tho I am not asking for cooling with temp. outside in the fifty's. I can hear it turning on and off. I know that it comes on if I ask for defrost, but why would it come on when I am just calling for heating?

I live in Sacrament too and my T&C AC runs in the winter. All cars have been designed like this for many years when defrost is selected. I don't know if they use a humidity sensor or just assume a little AC will help get rid of water vapor.

On some of the newer cars, when the AC comes on when the defrost is selected, the separate AC button usually lights up. I think if you then press this button, the AC will shut off even though you are calling for defrost.

I have a 05 t&c with infrared 3 zone auto temp. control.It only blows air from panel vents. Even though the knob shows floor or windshield. anyone run into this?
