Owners of various Nissan models including Rogues and Leafs have suffered through repeated air-conditioning failures, finding their air conditioning continually blows hot air and will not cool. Beyond inconvenient, the malfunction can be dangerous in some environments as overheated cars cannot be cooled.
Consumers are being told by Nissan dealers that a new condenser would fix the problem, that there was no problem at all, or are being given various other explanations and excuses. Still their A/C remains non-functional.
What are the symptoms?
Air conditioning blows hot air, even with the engine running, after a sufficient period of time, and with all fluids topped off.
What are attempted fixes?
- Recharge refrigerant. Replacement of most air conditioning components requires complete evacuation of the air conditioning system with a refrigerant recovery machine. Once components are re-installed, the technician will remove all air from the system in preparation for recharging the system with new refrigerant.
- Replace entire A/C compressor
- Check for leaks along the entire air conditioning system
