Come along with Eric O. at the SMA shop as he has a look at a 2007 Hyundai Sonata 3.3l that has an A/C system that is blowing warm air. He started out thinking it may just have developed a leak and lost its refrigerant but quickly finds out it has a blown fuse. That leaves one big question...What blew the fuse!? Stay tuned to find out!

    Will you fix my A/C? lol I don't have all these fancy tools. Checked fuses but can't locate the A/C relay on my 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT.

    Since it’s north east have you thought of cleaning the contacts since corrosion is a norm up there! More corrosion(oxidation) means more current pull

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Ermis says:

    Great video. A demonstration of what’s missing with many “mechanics” these days, the ability to troubleshoot. Most now a days find a code and change a part. It either works or they shrug their shoulders and change another part.

    My Hyundai have a similar problem.. the thing is that I took it to a long drive and after 4 fuses blown in the trip blown just one then all good for 3 weeks and know is every other week blowing fuses.. do you thing that is a short inside the ac compressor.. cause I don't see any wire strip..any idea is apriciated?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rhonda Cumpsty says:

    What are the symptoms of a bad AC clutch?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Nice when you started the hunt my first thought was a blown fuse or a seized fan clutch hadent contemplated a high energy draw from a bad working clutch

    05 sonata… compressor not engaging. Relay not clicking even with new relay . How can I track down what’s wrong. Thanks

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James says:

    2012 sonata. Air was cool but not sufficient. Bought a refill can, added some, air completely went hot never to blow cold again. I heard hissing inside the car, can't hear the compressor kick on either, hissing did eventually stop. Did i completely f**k myself and my air conditioning system????

    Can you help me sir? My hyundai tucson 2016 ac conpressor not working. I check the wire of compressor but it gives 3.2 volts. What is the problem sir?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Felicia Moniq says:

    Please help. My car is a Hyundai. The air isn’t blowing. What does that mean?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AR M says:

    That compressor internally is shot. You can hear it has a grinding noise!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyson Games says:

    My 2008 Hyundai Sonata's AC goes out every time it gets hot outside. No one can figure it out.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Wheatley says:

    Same car, installed a new serpentine belt, now my ac is blowing out hot air. Tried to refill the Ac with a can, and it wouldn’t take it.. checked the fuses, nothing blown.. I’m not sure what to do now.. any info would help! Thanks

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MillCityChris says:

    I have the same car. I was trying to recharge my AC but the gauge needle was reading in the red. What does that mean???? Over pressured

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ash i says:

    Can you replace the clutch without removing the a/c compressor from the car? Great video.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck Gatlin says:

    so what was going on with this car's AC? Was it blowing hot or not blowing at all?

    It is crazy how women always want to interrupt our men stuff with some phone bla bla bla…

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Craske says:

    Watched you while looking at mom's car. Already checked fuse and swapped starter relay for ultimate check. Without your fancy scantool, but your brilliant hypothesis and your findings of the correct resistance, the only other thing I could think to do was check the positive battery terminal that was shielded by a plastic cover. I lifted the cover to find massive corrosion and burnt plastic. Installed new terminal and the compressor is behaving. Will get a good voltmeter next just to check amperage.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny V says:

    My sonata ac runs fine and cold once i get my RPMs up to 4500. Can it be ac control valve ($17) or maybe clutch? What makes that clutch engage?

    Great Video. Thanks for passing on the knowledge

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gizmo42Rodeo says:

    One thing that a lot of people dont seem to understand. Wiring is sized according to the total maximum current draw of all devices on that circuit. Fuses are sized to protect the wire, not the device.
