1997 Honda CR-V Question: AC blows cold but does not cool the vehicle
My AC on my 1997 Honda CR-V blows cold. It seems as cold as my 1997 Toyota RAV4. However it will not cool the vehicle compartment, even when traveling on the highway. It seems like the air volume being circulated is not sufficient almost like the fan is not blowing 100% at top speed. Is there more than one fan? How can I test to see to see if fan is blowing at the designed speed? I do have the switch on to recirculate the air so it should be at maximum cooling. The cooling fan at the radiator is running with the AC on. Everything appears to be working properly. - mjones309
First thing that I would check and replace is your Climate Control Filter. It is behind your glove box, if it is old and clogged, you will not get enough flow to cool your vehicle. - dandd
My AC compressor does not engage when it is hot around. It works fine when it is cool ambient temperature.
