Air Conditioner Issues

I have a 2017 Pacifica, intermittently the air conditioner only blows hot air. it does not code for a sensor problem, and since its intermittent, they dont see a problem. Anyone else having issues?

Also having my driver side sliding door corrected. After closing it tends to open up one additional time requiring a second closing.

Mine does as well. I believe this to be that the fan is still routing air into the cabin but it is unconditioned air straight from the outside when ESS kicks on. Logically this makes sense to me because ESS kicking on turns the engine off...when the engine is off, the serpentine belt is not spinning...when the serpentine belt is not spinning, the AC Compressor is not spinning...when the AC Compressor is not spinning, the air is not conditioned...Don't let the air not be conditioned, switch to DirecTV!!

Hi Brenda4523,

At ~1000 miles my Pacifica (No ESS) began blowing hot air intermittently. Within a day it was blowing hot only.

It had a bad compressor for the A/C. A local dealer is replacing it under warranty.
Interestingly, they gave me a RAM1500 as a loaner. That is a big truck.

Best,
dogbus.

I too have been noticing this issue; it's intermittent and I can't get it to replicate for the dealer. I'm hoping I can use this TSB to convince them that the compressor has gone bad and to order the part for me.

Since AC is recycled interior air, it will not initially blow in hot air. It will however get warmer and higher in humidity over a length of time. Most people at a stop sign will not notice the difference. If you stop for a long period of time then yes, you will notice the difference.

That said, the above bulletin addresses a faulting AC. The noise suggests that the bearings are bad i think.

Another note, there ARE ESS systems out there that continue to run the compressor electrically.

It would make sense for the Pacifica to have an electric AC compressor so that it could continue running when the engine turns off.

I believe I've been experiencing this issue where the impression is that the compressor will stop working and blow air that is warm and damp. Usually after a few minutes the compressor will eventually kick back in and you can definitely feel a difference in the air. I took the car to 3 dealers and they never really took me seriously. Now a Service manager seems to be looking into it but haven't been able to replicate. Any suggestion on how to force the issue to happen?
