AC not working - can it be reset?

Recommended Posts

Hi Just bought a 2020 Ford edge with only 500 miles on it from MI. When we took it to FL last week the AC does not seem to be working. I went online and people said to reset it my hitting the defrost and climate control buttons at the same time but that did not work. Thanks

It's so new, why not just take it in under warranty?

I bought it with a rebuilt title and no warranty

Could be low on refrigerant (leak). System designed to shut off when low on refrigerant. 

Pull codes or take it in to a good shop. Could be any number of things.

Please let us know what they find.

 

If it were me, whether the Schrader valves are leaking or not, I'd still ask them to replace them,  as the seals harden and leak. (Preventive maintenance).

The plastic piece on the compressor is broken and the wire to give it power cannot stay in so need new compressor. The guy I bought it from is sending me a new one.

I have a 2014 edge and the air conditioner compressor will not come on. Any help would surely be appreciated.

I've replaced low pressure sensor switch, cooling fan module, ac clutch relay. The compressor will not engage, I noticed the cooling fan not really turn fast like they should so I replaced the module. They still run at half speed.they don't come on when you turn the air conditioner on. I think they are supposed to.i bypassed the relay and the clutch will engage,but it doesn't cool.

What are you reading on the gauges for high and low systems? Any evidence of oil leakage at any connections?
