2006 Kia Sorento Question: Ac compressor not switching on

 

Question

After having my 2006 sorento repaired from a head on collision, my ac compressor ceases to turn on when pushing the ac button. I've checked all fuses and relays and find no faults. Is there a plug that might have been missed In the engine compartment or in the dash behind the ac controls. A schematic would be helpful.

    This should have been repaired during the front collision repair, Bring it back to the body shop or call your insurance and complain that the repair wasn't done completely

    There are a number of things that could affect the A/C system, like a blown fuse, improper refrigerant charge, faulty A/C clutch, faulty compressor or malfunction in the control system. Either take it back to the body shop, they should be capable of fixing it, or find a Kia or Mitsubishi specialist.
