Ok, so with information I gathered from the site I changed out my ambient temp sensor, but I’m still getting the blinking light. Is there more than one sensor?
Again, per the owners manual:
This clears the windshield of
fog or frost more quickly. Air is
directed to the windshield and side
window vents, with some to the floor
vents. In this mode, outside air is
pulled inside the vehicle.
Recirculation cannot be selected
while in the defrost mode. The air
conditioning system runs
automatically in this setting, unless
the outside temperature is less than
4 °C (40 °F). Do not drive the
vehicle until all windows are clear.
My first attempt was the bottle to refill, but the compressor would not kick on, so I jumped the relay. That did not get my AC working again, so a more in depth attempt will be made this week. Going to pull out the manifold gauges and vacuum pump, reclaim what’s in there, make sure there is no leaks and then recharge it with the vacuum pulled.I did not have to jump the relay. When I used the bottle to refill it must have been sufficient to satisfy the low pressure cutout, because eventually the compressor kicked on.
Read this thread. Supposedly the line is not repairable.Ok, found the leak, and its a pin hole on the A/C line that runs to the rear. Its right at the bend in the rear of the vehicle before the line turns upward. Being that it is at the bend is going to be an issue for the standard cut and compression fiction fix. I don't see myself changing out the whole line itself, maybe an alternate patch or fix that can hold up for now, brazing the line?
