Your aircon compressor clutch did not engage when it should. So the compressor is not working hence no cold air. The rpm goes higher because the FICD, Fast Idle control device increase the throttle in anticipation of compressor coming ON. Since no load from compressor, the increase in throttle makes the rpm higher.

This is something Ah Huat and I encountered before, but the change in rpm for my case was not as apparent as yours.

Another possible reason: The relay for the compressor did not change over, to turn it on..

Good luck bro thumbsup.gif

There could be a couple of cause that makes the clutch not to engaged. The clutch itself can spoil but unlikely unless your mileage is very high, above 160,000kms on the odometer.

There is a sensor on the drier/receiver to ensure there is enough aircon gas in the system, then it will trigger the clutch. So either this sensor is spoilt or there is really not enough aircon gas. The Aircon gas also carries along the oil to circulates to the compressor for lubrication. So if there is a lack of aircon gas, the sensor detects it and prevent the compressor fromm running without lubrication.

Do you have a situation where the aircon becomes very cold and white smoke blows out of the aircon vent in your dialy driving?

I will suggest that you top up the Aircon gas. May cost you $20 or so. Then you see if this problem goes away. If problem goes away and after 4 to 5 months it come back, means there is a leak.

This is the cheapest first step for your problem.

Hi bro,

don't mind i 'hijack' your thread abit..since i am also facing similar problems as you..

Recently, after heavy jam(1hr+ those SG-Msia causeway type), my air con become not cold. Only after i cleared the jam and travelled about 2-3km then the aircom start becoming cold.

I suspected that the compressor refuse to start during jam because usually when the compressor kicks in, i can feel and hear it starting up..but during these type of long jam, the compressor didn't even start..

Is this normal? do i need to bring it for a check?
