TROUBLESHOOTING A/C SYSTEM

2001 Kia Sportage

Air Conditioning problem
2001 Kia Sportage 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 106000 miles

The A/C on my 2001 Kia Sportage is only blowing hot air. I have fully recharged the system with refrigerant, all fuses inside the vehicle and engine compartment have been checked-What have I missed? No repair manual is available for my vehicle. Please help me out? If it is a high pressure switch, where is it located and how do I change it?

Hi denazar,

Is the compressor engaging when AC is turned on?

If not, check for power from relay at fuse box.

If there is power and the clutch does not engage, the coil is bad or clutch has too much clearance.
