AC stopped cooling


Asked by Nov 19, 2016 at 09:28 AM about the 2013 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car's AC has stopped cooling, I turned it ON today after a long time as
the weather has just started to become warm. Got disappointed when it
didnt cool as it used to be. Also, the car is not that old :( Camry 2013 Altise

The AC light turns ON, temp knob set to cold, air intake selected as internal
for quickest cooling, still did not throw cold air after being turned ON for like
20 or so minutes. Please advise next action. I am planning to look at
interior air filter, fuse, relay, hose leakage, etc

First thing I would look at is to verify that the clutch on the A/C compressor is engaging. If it is not engaging then you may have a low pressure condition. There are sensors that measure pressure in the system and if the pressure switch is not made, it will disable the pump to avoid system damage.

Thanks for replying Mark! I am not too sure how to verify if clutch on AC compressor is getting engaged. I kept the hood open and pressed AC button to see if I could hear any change of sound on compressor turning ON but didn't. I also opened the fuse & relay box to see if I could see any with AC written on it on the diagram but couldnt. Please advise next step.
