1.Check magnet clutch operation

  1. Turn ignition switch on.
  2. Operate fan switch.
  3. PressA/Cswitch.
  4. Check that A/C indicator turns ON. Check visually and by sound that compressor operates.
  5. Press A/C switch again.
  6. Check that a/c indicator turns off. Check that compressor stops.

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 2.

No >> perform diagnosis of “compressor does not operate” in “symptom diagnosis”.

Refer to hac-102, "diagnosis procedure".

2.Check drive belt

Check tension of drive belt. Refer to em-16, "inspection".

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 3.

No >> adjust or replace drive belt depending on the inspection results.

3.Check refrigerant cycle

Connect recovery/recycling recharging equipment to the vehicle and perform pressure inspection with gauge.

Refer to ha-18, "symptom table".

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 4.

No >> repair or replace parts depending on the inspection results.

4.Check air leakage from each duct

Check duct and nozzle, etc. Of the front air conditioning system for leakage.

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 5.

No >> repair or replace parts depending on the inspection results.

5.Check ambient temperature display

Check that there is not much difference between actual ambient temperature and indicated temperature on information display in combination meter.

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 6.

No >> perform diagnosis for the a/c auto amp. Connection recognition signal circuit. Refer to hac-63, "diagnosis procedure".

6.Check setting of temperature setting trimmer (front)

  1. Check setting value of temperature setting trimmer (front). Refer to HAC-55, "Temperature Setting Trimmer".

Symptom

Diagnosis Procedure

Note:

Perform self-diagnosis with consult before performing symptom diagnosis. If dtc is detected, perform the corresponding diagnosis.

1.Check cooling system

  1. Check engine coolant level and check leakage. Refer to co-11, "system inspection".
  2. Check reservoir tank cap. Refer to co-11, "system inspection".
  3. Check water flow sounds of the engine coolant. Refer to co-11, "system inspection".

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 2.

No >> refill engine coolant and repair or replace parts depending on the inspection results.

2.Check heater hose

Check installation of heater hose visually or by touching.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> Repair or replace parts depending on the inspection results.

3.Check heater core

  1. Check temperature of inlet hose and outlet hose of front heater core.
  2. Check that inlet side of heater core is hot and the outlet side is slightly lower than/almost equal to the inlet side.

Caution:

Always perform the temperature inspection in a short period of time because the engine coolant temperature is very hot.

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 4.

No >> replace heater core. Refer to ha-44, "heater core : removal and installation".

4.Check air leakage from each duct

Check duct and nozzle, etc. Of front air conditioning system for air leakage.

Is the inspection result normal? Yes >> go to 5.

No >> repair or replace parts depending on the inspection results.

5.Check setting of temperature setting trimmer (front)

  1. Check setting value of temperature setting trimmer (front). Refer to hac-55, "temperature setting trimmer".
  2. Check that temperature setting trimmer (front) is set to “− direction”.

Note:

The control temperature can be set by the temperature setting trimmer (front).

  1. Set difference between the set temperature and control temperature to “0”.

Are the symptoms solved? Yes >> inspection end.

No >> replace a/c auto amp. Refer to hac-105, "removal and installation".
