huh? I thought most cars click when it AC is on and you are idling.
Nope, it will only do that if you're low on freon. It'* a fail-safe. Kick on the freon on a properly charged car...you won't hear the compressor engaging/disengaging.

No, there'* no need to reset the computer. Simply bringing the system up to proper levels will solve the problem. Once it has the right amount of freon, it'* done.

i got a temp thing from work and the temp coming out of the vents is about 40 deg. so i guess its just the fans that arent blowing hard.

were can i find the blower motor resistor? i check that cuz maybe thats why my fans arent blocking very hard.

Possibly...Does anyone know where the air intake is and do they get clogged on these cars? I know some cars are very suseptible to this problem. Especially if you park outside...under trees...stuff like that.

l27buick when my car start do it end up the blower was going bad. I paid 40.89 at kenwoa auto supply on lake michgan. The blower base is middle on the fire wall. I think their was like 8 screw hold it on. I think the hard part is realign it with the screw holes. The other thing that was oroblem is mine getting past the engine bay brace It isn't hard job. If you need help send im message.

If complete bad like mine it will not run. If it going bad it will not be blowing lot of air,but first check the air intake. When I tested I just hooked circirt tester to the power connection So that I knew if hit the switch it was getting power. Also usually if listen very carefully they make noise when running
