Hello,
My AC blows warm at all travel speeds. Compressor spins, electric condenser fan only works if jumped to 12 volts, fuses look good. Does the condenser fan circuit control the AC cooling operation? What should I check next?
Thanks for your help.
Do you

Do you have separate left and right temp controls?

It sounds like you have a stripped out blend door actuator for the driver's side. That is the electric motor that control the heat air door.

You can access it by removing the glove box.

Blows cold air when driving and blows hot air when stopped. Also, I can see smoke or steam coming from vent smells bad also.

Look up under dash for wet spots you could have a heater core leaks sounds like it. Also the air conditioner condenser is in front of the radiator closest to the grill. When you open the hood the electric fan is right there for the air conditioner condenser. With the air conditioner on see if that fan turns on at some point.

Air conditioner/heat will not come on. I turn the knob on the control panel to on and I get nothing. Use to tap dash and it would come on. When it came on it would blow fine then would get lower as I drive along like as if I turned it down until it would not blow at all. When it blew low I could hear a fan like it was struggling to turn. What could this problem be? Please help it is getting hot in here!

My a/c doesn't blow cold I checked it out and the low side suction line freezes up I changed out the low side line with orfice tube and I also changed out the dryer. Do you know what my problem could be?

It could be a temp actuator but until the a/c system was performance checked you are shooting in the dark. It proably needs to be evacuated, and recharged because there is moisture in the system.

My air condition button in my 2005 dodge ram truck is constantly blinking and the air is blowing hot. What could be the problem? 2 mechanics have checked and can't find the problem.1 mechanic had me to replace the A/C high/low pressure gauge/switch. That didn't solve the problem.

The light is blinking because the computer shut the system down and and stored a trouble code. You will need a shop with a professional scan tool that can read the Powertrain Control Module and the A/C data input data.
