Saab 9-3 AC Compressor Fails to Engage or Disengage

(13 reports)

The thermo contact in the AC compressor can fail, which means the compressor may fail to engage or disengage.

ac run but blows hot air -
AC works more off hen on. It didn't work x 1 year (only one evening it turned on over that time), then worked for 2 years, followed by another 1 1/2 years of not working and 2 months working again and currently not working. These cycles occur without intervention (quote is around $1000 for new a/c, no other options provided for repair). When the air conditioning fails, the air circulation is failing as well. -
ac comes on once in a while and blows cold but doesn't work often -
When I turn on the airconditioning the motor comes on, but only blows warm air -
