2002 Camry A/C light flashes if the belt is slipping or the compressor is not turning properly. Another possible reason is that speed sensor of the compressor does not match the speed of the engine. If the horn works, your relay is probably fine and the AC compressor may have an electrical or mechanical issue.
What does it mean when your AC button flashes?
Coolant is a liquid that flows around the engine block and eventually to the radiator to dissipate the engine’s heat. According to the Celica forum, if the refrigerant is low the AC light could blink. The blinking light could also mean that the serpentine belt is slipping or that the compressor is faulty.
How do you know if your car compressor is not working?
Look under the hood at the AC compressor clutch.
- Your car should be running with the AC on to check the compressor clutch.
- The compressor looks like a small motor with a large wheel on the end. The wheel (which is the compressor clutch) should be spinning. If it is not spinning, you have a problem with your compressor.
Why is my car compressor not working?
If the AC compressor doesn’t turn on, the most common culprit by far is low AC refrigerant. If there is a leak, no matter how small, it’ll eventually cause a non-working AC system. Poor grounding, frayed wiring, bad clutch coil, and defective AC pressure sensor switch can also be an issue although less common.
The flashing a/c light under this test condition can indicate that there is a problem with the compressor speed sensor. In testing the compressor speed sensor circuits it is easiest to begin at the compressor harness connector. The black/white wire is the command circuit from the relay to the compressor clutch coil.
Why is my AC light blinking in my 98 Toyota Camry?
The light flashes when the RPM of the compressor differs from the RPM of the engine. This can happen, as you said, if the compressor is seizing, the AC belt is slipping, or the clutch isn’t engaging. Check the AC charge first.
The flashing light indicates a problem with the A/C system such that it will not operate. Your A/C system should never need refrigerant.
Why is my AC blinking red and green?
It may be turned off for the season, a plug may have come loose or the circuit is tripped. A slow, steady light generally means that the unit is on but not providing heat, while a fast, steady blinking light means the unit is working properly and providing heat.
What are the signs of a bad AC capacitor?
Here are some common symptoms of a bad AC capacitor.
- AC Not Blowing Cold Air. An air conditioner that doesn’t blow cold air is one of the first signs of a problem many homeowners notice.
- High and Rising Energy Bills.
- Humming Noise.
- Old HVAC System.
- AC Turns Off On Its Own.
- AC Doesn’t Turn On Immediately.
- AC Won’t Turn On.
Can a blown fuse cause AC not to work?
First of all, your electrical system might be having problems. While this prevents serious trouble such as electrical fires, it also means that a single blown fuse can cause the entire air conditioner to stop working.
What would cause an AC compressor to not turn on?
If the compressor isn’t starting, check the wiring connecting the two units. If it’s a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker, the search has come to an end. Other potential causes may include a faulty thermostat, mismatched indoor and outdoor units, or the AC may just be old.
