Air Conditioning problem
1998 Chrysler Concorde 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 156000 miles
Please help! About 8 months ago the blower fan on my AC unit went nuts! Now blows at max speed all the time even when the AC/heat controller is in the off position. Looked to correct problem, talked to service manager at dealership and was told it would take hours to find problem and hundreds of dollars. I decided to live with the issue.
Now the unit will not blow any cold air. About a week ago I was driving with AC on, it worked fine (except fan running at max speed) very cool air out of vents. At one point I smelled a strong burning odor like an electrical fire and the air coming out of the vents got warm. I turned unit off for a while and odor went away. Since that time no cold air has come from vents. A friend and I have looked, and the compressor is nor running. We have used jumper wires and had the compressor running again but it looks like the system is not telling the compressor to engage.
Car is old, I am broke and do not want to put a ton of money in repairing this, what can I do? It has been suggested that I install manual toggle switches on the blower fan and the compressor to allow me a cheep fix to start and stop both. What are your thoughts?
have the same problem?
