I have a Honda accord 97 with 127,000 miles. For last three days, if I turn on the AC, Heat indicator goes high. If I turn off the AC, it is good. I checked my coolant and it seems I have enough. I also added some. Also, while AC is on, if I stop the car on red light or on stop sign, I starts shaking a bit. My guess is it is the AC Fan which is not working properly. Please explain. Thanks.
Do you
have the same problem?

Ok, I am assuming that the condensor fan is not running when you turn on the a/c. Check the Condensor Fan 20 amp Fuse in the Under hood fuse/relay box. If the fuse is good, then check for voltage on pin 2 of the condensor fan while the a/c is running. If you have power, then your fan is bad, or you have a bad ground. Check for a ground on pin 1 to eliminate that.
If you do not have power, then it could be the Condensor Fan relay, or the possibly the Engine Coolant Temperature Switch. This is located over the transmission.
Good luck.

I want to thank you for the answer. I am really novice about the car. Another thing I noticed is that, the engine temparature goes high when I am driving slow or stopping frequently. When I am driving on the highway, Engine temparatue is good. I do not have any problem at all regarding my AC. It is working fine. I only have problem with engine temparature. Please help. Thanks.

Thanks again. I checked the fuse and it seems good. The fuse is 15 amp in honda accord 97 if I am not mistaken. I do not know how to check the voltage on pin 2 or 1. I dont know where the pins are. Could any one help? Thanks again.

The condesor fan has a plug. You will need to disconnect the plug, and look to see which pin is 1 and which is 2.
