My ac is working in every sense except is blowing hot air when is set to cold. Suddenly stopped blowing cold air. Please help. Someone tell me how to fix this on a limited income.
from a cold start air conditioning works fine and will continue to work fine as long as engine is running and air conditioning stays on, drove 200 miles and air blew cold entire time. Stopped to get a drink turning off car. Engine restarted but Air conditioning compressor would not come back on. When engine completely cooled and air system stabilized air compressor came back on and air was cold again. This situation was repeated dozens of times over the summer. Sometimes I would cut air off with switch about 2-3 miles before stopping to park, sometimes air would come back on when car restarted after short stop.

The car's a/c unit is blows hot air instead of cold. I've gotten 3 different opinions.
Same exact issue. Everybody wants to charge me $1200 to fix but I know from another blog that it is actually an easy fix based on a statement from a nissan technician.

I have a new 2015 Nissan Altima and today from start up the air conditioning was only blowing how air, as the outside air temperature in Houston on Sept 30 was about 90 degrees with humidity. This is the first time this has happened. I tried switching off and on the AC with the engine warm with no correction. Now I have a dealer appointment tomorrow and the service rep did not seemed surprised.
My 2013 started having AC issues in 2014. Problems include: AC taking as long as 5-10 minutes to feel cool. Also the only way it becomes cool is if I'm driving 40mph +.

Was traveling out of town(eat 8hr trip)and used the A/C on the way there,worked fine; on my way back to town, u used the A/C and suddenly it hadstopped working.. I then took it to the Stealership and they said the compressor was bad and my warranty would not cover it, and wanted to charge me 1,040 to replace it...I then took and alternative and took the car to an independent shop to get the A/C recharged; they said it was about 1/2 full and had it recharged, but the the A/C still wouldn't turn on, the mechanic said that when they run low or have a leak they have a switch that shuts the compressor off.. How can I test to check if it even is the A/C compressor or if there even is a leak? Dealer, or Indie??

a/c worked fine until May, hit a deer. after the repair work was done, the A/C was making vacuum noises, took back to shop, he sent me to another mechanic, who drained the coolant and told us not to use the a/c. he replaced compressor, and it works when it wants to.,

AC stopped working. Got compressor replaced. Has stopped working 3 more times since then. Still no good solution. First time, a hose wasn't on correctly. Second time, replaced malfunctioning wire. I don't know what is wrong this time. Will take it back tomorrow.

Just out of warranty by mileage and a few months by time. AC blows hot air. Mechanic says everything "burned up", meaning the compressor, evaporator, and condenser. 1,400 quote to fix, but I have contacted Nissan seeing that this seems to be a common problem and if they can do anything. Disappointed since I have had no mechanical problems with our Chevy, Fords, and Honda. We do all of the schedule maintenance and this just had it's 30k checkup 10 months ago. I would expect this if the car was 7 years old and had 120,000 miles on it. Not 36k and driven rather gently.
