2006 Kia Sorento Q&A
2006 Kia Sorento Question: Ac compressor not switching on
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. - Allenro
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 - hemicuda
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. If you want to find a specialist, here's a directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=30707&car_brand_names=Kia Here are two information sources for you: For AllData: http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online Here's the one for Mitchell as well: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online - Superbob
Mechanic confirmed no power to compressor. There is no blown fuse and the compressor appears to be connected appropriately. Is there a switch that has the on/off capability>
I have recharged the AC with 134a. It still is blowing warm air. What else should I do?
