2014 camry le A/C
A/C works on and off but mostly off since last year. Only 35k miles. Now i have
40k miles and it still is crazy. When it gets warm, I noticed the outside air
switches on when i put it on body/feet or just feet, I can't shut off outside air
switch! is this electrical? fuse? Do i just need freon?
I would start by checking freon gas. If it's too low the compressor will not kick in
It might not be the AC. The ductwork has blend doors inside the dash that move to get the temperature to the vent where you want it and to throttle between AC cooled air and ambient or heated air. Could be that one or two of the blend doors is sticking because the door actuator is defective. You may have noticed a tapping sound under the dash from a defective actuator. The doors are located under the dash and possibly behind the glove box; the actuators are small boxes. Try a spray lubricant on the actuators, or remove them to see if there's a broken sprocket. Might need replacing. It's not too difficult a fix.
Thanks so much. I called mechanic and mentioned the outside air switch. Definitely getting outside air and a/c but mostly warm air. There's no noise. I just had freon and dye put in but go back this week and hope he can fix it and won't be too expensive. I bought this car new and still paying for it!! So distressing.
