I have a 2001 Ford Escape. I had to replace a radiator just last week, and since then the defroster/heater was not giving out hot air. I took it in to get serviced and they noticed that the compressor was not turning.
The a/c system had not been working for a while, and they replaced the freon. The compressor now turns on for about 5 to six seconds, then shuts off, then shortly thereafter turns back on and then off and so forth.
Hot air does come out of the system, and the defroster, but, apparently, according to my son who normally drives the car, not as hot as before.
Is the compressor working as it should, or should it be continuously on, or at least on for longer spurts of time?
Any help to point me in the right direction would be tremendously appreciated.
have the same problem?
