Ac blowing warm on hot days

The problem with my vehicle is it is making this crazy noise under the motor and it only does it for a few seconds and it smokes afterwards. Rubber smell. It sounds like something is being caught up in a fan.

I ve been having the same problems with my cooling and heating unit.also my day lights and turning signals

The air condition compressor has had to be replaced twice and needs to be replaced again. It costs about $1200.00 each time. I can't skip the fixing of it because the bearing freezes up and melts the powers steering belt. If I don't get the new compressor, I won't have power steering. THIS CAR IS THE WORST, Never Ever Again will I own a Cadillac. I am very disappointed.

Blowing warm air

In 2012 august to be exact a very hot day i turned on the a/c and noticed it was just getting hotter i noticed a burning rubber smell suddenly i couldnt turn the steering wheel and finally made it to a grocery store parking lot. I located a near by repair shop and had my car towed there come to find our the a/c compressor went out cost me 858.00. After having my car for 5 years now everything is beginint to go wrong and starting to cost me money.

Same problem with 7 years and 85000 km. What does cadillac say about¿

Same problem

I've had four ac compressors replaced over five years with same problem. I am left without power steering when ac compressors give out.

Compressor started making noise and clutch was sparking.

Haven't fixed it yet.

Mine actually blew out 2 days ago and caused a fire with heavy smoke and bad smell. Luckily the whole car didn't go up. I will be contacting them. It is dangerous.

My air just went out! It's my air compressor!!! 1832.00 to repair! Ughh!!
