Ac & heater not working. Air comes out, but it's basically just the fans blowing in air form the outside

Asked by Apr 03, 2015 at 10:56 PM about the 2001 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Compressor works, no leaks, has been
recharged with freeon. The fans turn on
when the ac and heater come on, but it just
blows the air the same temperature from
the outside, doesn't cool it or heat it

There’s a small hatch inside your car’s ventilation system called the “blend air door”. When you turn your environmental system from heat to cold, the door should change to drawing in cold air. If it doesn’t change, it will still be drawing heat from the engine and blowing it on you! Again, this is a job for a qualified mechanic. Also make sure that they use a charging machine to charge your freon system this will remove all the freon left in the system before is recharged.
