Question Asked: Are there problems with air conditioner freezing up?
June 24, 2012, 05:42 PM
42,000 miles with no prior ac issues other than blower motor failure at 40,000 miles. On recent trip, the airflow diminished to barely detectable after 2.5 hours of a road trip with both thermostats on auto at 77 and an outside temp in the upper 80's. The fan speed would audibly increase with higher settings without increase in flow. Returned to normal after parking an hour. Functioning normally since on local trips.

<p>The <a id="ce_78" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/heater-blower-motor">HVAC blower motor</a> may fail. This is commonly caused by water entry through the <a id="ce_11" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/cabin-air-filter"><span class="ct_selected tooltip">cabin air</span><span class="ct_selected tooltip"> filter</span></a> areas during heavy rain or snow. Failed blower motors should be replaced. Our technicians tell us there is no special fix for this issue at this time.</p>
