My AC is not blowing out cool air. Fuses are good. Compressor works when jumped. Cycle switch replaced.

Asked by Jul 11, 2016 at 12:15 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer, 4.0L.  Freon was put in my car & 4 days later the cool air started blowing as if the heater was on. Yes, I made sure the knob was turned to blue and not to red. The fuses are good. The cycle switch has been replaced. The compressor runs when it is jumped. You would think a fuse would be the problem, correct? It is July in south MS and I need cool air in my car!

If system was working when freon was installed but not working now there is a leak in the A.C system. Clutch on compressor will not engage if no freon in system.
