The blend door does not position correctly and A/C air is blowing across heater core causing warm air to blow out vents. Haven't found a solution. Here to figure out how to adjust the cable for the blend door.
air conditioner blowing hot air off and on had compressor replaced went on long trip started all over again when it sat parked in a hot lot for aprox 2 hrs still blows hot air when its hot out than sometimes it will blow cold after awhile my mechanic ordered a new pump but not installed yet
Dealer said it was fine that I wait 3 miles travel before I feel cool air from the AC vents.

I discovered that if I turn the AC to high fan; it will trigger the compressor to kick ON within 30 seconds.

Don't know why; just does.
My power windows are giving me problems drive side/back passenger side won't go back up. For awhile it was working but than it would sound like it needed to be charged, (an sluggish sound ).
ALways been a problem and when I did an internet search, data.com, shows this as a tech bulletin problem but I did not want to pay them for the whole report but am taking the number to the dealership.
Air conditioner doesn't blow cool enough. I've had this problem for 6 years. I drive with the windows down as much as possible it's so bad. It's been looked at multiple times and never anything found wrong with it.
Took them to the local dealer since new , they always indicate it was ok. Even after they replaced the cabin filter.
