My 2009 Corolla's A/C quit, then works intermittently.

Asked by Aug 04, 2016 at 07:03 PM about the 2009 Toyota Corolla LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One suggestion was the compressor relay - where EXACTLY is that relay?  The diagram on the fusebox cover isn't even helpful.  Also [very] open to other suggestions for fixing this.  Refrigerant charged (may possibly be overcharged?).  Condensor was recently replaced due to suicidal raccoon.

When you say working intermittently is the compressor clicking on and off ?

By intermittently, I mean that it randomly decides to work once every 3 or 4 days. When it comes on, sometimes it is right away when I start the engine and sometimes it is while I am driving down the road (not paying any attention to it). Cycling the AC button seems to have absolutely NO effect.
