What could cause the airconditioning system of a 2006 corolla to stop working over night?


Asked by Aug 26, 2013 at 09:32 AM about the 2006 Toyota Corolla

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving home one night my airconditioning was working just fine. The next morning I don't have any air at all blowing from the vent (either cold or hot). Before I bring it to the dealership can any one offer any advice or opinions on whats going on?

Do you live in Phoenix? That Toyota AC should last a long time- if no air is blowing, it could be just the blower motor, the fan, which might be just a fuse or relay or something simple- can you feel the compressor come on when you switch the control to AC?

I live in GA. No compressor or anything. When I switch the ac from off to on, no noise at all. It's as if I didn't even try turning it on. I was thinking a fuse or fan myself, just don't want to get taken at the shop when I bring it in.

This probably is not the cause but FYI: ...Toyota Corolla Air Conditioning Problems All Models 2005-2006 If you or someone you know has problems with their Toyota Corolla years 2005-2006 needs to know this information. It costs $300 to repair the A/C condenser and $300 in labor for a total of $600. It is important that you as a consumer knows exactly what your rights are.......Toyota has issued a Technical Service Bulletin indicating that the A/C condenser is not properly protected the number for this report is AC002-06. However, Toyota has redesigned the Corolla to correct this in 2007 by properly protecting the A/C condenser leaving the 2005-2006 customers in the dust. Please contact Toyota if you have this issue at 1-800-331-4331 or customerservice@toyota.com and tell them that you demand total replacement of the A/C condenser and full protection. Then go to www.nhtsa.dot.gov/ and lodge a vehicle complaint to force a recall. //// I did not buy an extended warranty.... service agreement whatever you want to call it and The Dealer will not even look at my car unless I sign a service order, which I won't do, and I have begun to have problems with my A/C. If enough of us will go to that website and complain hopefully Toyota will issue a recall Thank You for taking the time to read this.

My air on my 2011 corolla was not cool so I cleaned the cabin filter out , it was filled with dirt to the top. Now it gets cold. U tube has a video on how to change filter , very easy to Do your self. If not work then could be more difficult problem.
