HI GUYS, IVE GOT 98 GXE, THE A/C

1998 Nissan Quest • 140,000 miles

The AC control, [ its automatic] stopped working, display wont come on, and the unit blows HOT air only, replaced the control unit with same style, and still no a/c. Jumped the blue pressure switch out compressor does kick in, but accumulator stays warm and still no cold air. Any ideas, would help thanks.

You really neeed t have apro look at this to see if there is any freon in the system. Especially if you jumped the pressure switch and nothing happened.

Really? If you cared to read my question I'm lacking proper operation of the automatic air controller, maybe my knowledge of jumping out pressure switch should indicate my ability to test for freon, I'm asking about the controller part of the operation.

Ok first you have to check for power and ground, if it has those it's replace the unit. For it to self idagnose, start engine, push offf and mode switch at same time see if codes come up.

If you didn't get cold air when jumping out the switch, then you have more issues than just compressor power. Take hmac300's advice and pay a professional. You really are over your head here.

Hey appreciate the info very much, I just got ahold of the wiring diagrams thru AllData, , which is what I needed, as for being over my head, nothing like a challenge, mite Not be a pro but, perseverance, common sense and basic knowledge are a driving force. Thanks guys.
