First step is to see what your freon pressure is on the low port.2010 RAV4 4WD le model. When AC button pushed, light on button lights up, but did not feel compressor starting, air is not cool. No MG CLT relay in the fuse box at driver side under hood. HTR fuse and other fuses good. Any idea what is the problem?
Go to your local walmart and pick these 2 things up:Thank you for your reply. Never done anything on ac before. It is learning process for me. I won't get to the car until the weekend, so I have a few days to do some home work. I will try to follow your instruction. How do I identify which port is the low port?
No. I haven't found out the problem yet. Does your AC fan go on when you turn on compressor with techstream? Let me know what the dealer says when you take it in!I'm actually going through the exact same problem. I have a 2011 with the i4. I bought the scan tool and used techstream. There were no codes stored. I could command the compressor on, but can't get it to come on without the scantool. I checked everything out and it
seemed to point to the a/c amplifier. So I bought a new one for $300 and it still won't work. It's gonna have to go to the dealer before I end up replacing the ECM, because idk what else it could be. Hopefully yours is an easier fix.
I would get a second opinion just to make sure!I took the car to a local repair store who just told me it was the compressor and would take ~$1600 to get it fixed. Does it make sense based the symptoms and is the price reasonable?
The image you posted didn't come through. Try it again please.Thank you, 2003rav4lover, for detailed information. Just want to Walmart and got these 2 items. Are these ok? The instructions on package says do not over charge. How much pressure should it be charged?
Good to hear you got it working.Thank you, everybody, for nice information and suggestions. Took it to another local repair shop for second opinion. It was a bad compressor. Had it replaced and the final repair cost was ~$1000.
Replacing a 2009 RAV4 LE v6 compressor myself now. Changed out the condenser already. How to do you get the AC compressor out of the engine once unbolted?
I have a new one waiting to be installed.
