Sometimes air conditioning problems in car can be an easy fix, even for those of us who know next to nothing about cars. Before making a costly and time-consuming trip to a mechanic, try troubleshooting the problem yourself.
Tools Used: Tools, Screwdriver
Troubleshoot Air Conditioning
Start the car and turn the air conditioning on. Allow the engine to run a few minutes so the air can cool. Check to make sure you have the proper buttons selected. This simple step may uncover the root of the problem.
See if the problem is as simple as a blown fuse. If the temperature controls on the dashboard seem to work correctly but have no effect on the air, then this is likely the problem.
