2003 Toyota Camry Question: My A/C is not working. My mechanic wants to replace the mister first.

If the mister gets the condensor to work, then I wouldn't need a new condensor. Is that correct?

    Maybe your mechanic wants to date you...and is asking you to dump your mister.

    What EXACTLY are the symptoms? The THERMISTER is simply put , a thermometer at a specific location next to the evaporater , used to measure temp. and shut the compressor off to keep the evaporater from freezing.Does your A/C work at all?

    No my A/C stopped working without warning. The compressor just doesn't come one. The A/C switch on my dashboard blinks, instead of a steady yellow/green light. The fan control next to it works fine. I can blow vent air fine.

    If it has been diagnosed correctly , then that is a possible cause. Do you trust the person/shop working on your car?

    My car has 106,000 miles on it and is a 2003. Could the compressor just be worn out? I live in south Florida and have to use the A/C year round.
