First my car is an MKC not on list provided so I marked MKX. My air is blowing hot air. I bought A/C PRO and when I put tester on it went straight to the red which says see service tech.
Do you

Are you saying the A/C is overcharged with R134A?

Good morning,

Does the compressor turn on when you command A/C?

You need a set of gauges to give me the high and low side readings so I can see the readings.

Do you have a test light or voltmeter to check voltages for the system?

I attached a wiring diagram for you to view. Check the fuses for power on both sides with the key on.

Thank you for your help. But sadly enough I'm having to have everything replaced a nice two grand. But I live in TN and can't live without air! Thanks again for your help!

I guess the compressor went out and in turn deteriorated everything else. Maybe the clutch froze up. It just seems to me that a car only 3 years old should of lasted longer. We turned it into the Ford dealer (probably while it's so expensive).

Yes, I agree. Any repair shop would do this repair for way less. The compressor, dryer and expansion valve with labor should be around $1,200.00 to $1,300.00 out the door.
