ac was serviced 3 times . however after 5 days the freon had leaked out. although the tech had put a tracing die and after charging system could not find a leak with sniffer.....still a leak occured etc...HELP
service ac light on and ac won't operate. Buick service says pressure senor bad(as reported in codes). no parts available for this so they couldn't fix my problem. They reset codes added 5 ounces of coolant and it now works.
A/C leaks replaced freon with sealer.
