Hi Naveen,

To me it seems like the problem with the compressor clutch, either mechanical (not able to get locked or maintain the the lock) or electrical (loose connection). If the thermostat cut-in cut-off was to blame, then I guess switching the AC off and on again shouldn't have solved the problem, but thats the case as you said!

If your system is in top shape, your cooling will be as good in idle rpm. That is why the FICD ( fast idler control device) is provided to increase the RPM at idle condition. It also takes care of the strain on the engine and reduces the vibrations of your vehicle when the compressor comes on.

God bless.

Naveen, did you show this to any ac mechanic? Does the ac comes back on automatically after a couple of minutes, instead of you turning it off and on? If you haven't tried it see if this happens.

The ac does turn itself off when it reach a particular temperature and again turns back on when the temp rises.

In the Qualis there are two buttons AC and FULL. If the button AC is pressed the ac will turn itself off when the cabin reaches a particular temp and turns backon when the temp rises. If the button FULL is pressed the ac never turns itself off, no matter what the cabin temperature is.

I think this will explain to everyone when the a/c is working and when not......

I have a swift ZXI which has climate control and Even setting the temprature at 18 does not help. In auto or manual mode........
have the same problem with my lancer ...but this is due to the fact that i do not have sun film on my windscreen hence the car heats up in the afternoon ..so much that my a/c does not cool when the car is not moving but if i drive over 30kph it cools better

I used to have this problem with my Gypsy years ago. When the car was idling, it would only blow hot air. See if the cool air starts once you press the accelerator.

The Vitesse guys showed me this cut off switch under the hood. When it was on, the A/C would be on regardless if the car was running or idling. When it was off, the compressor would only come on once you press the accelerator and switch off when idling. This is probably to prevent the car from overheating, but I don't think Baleno should have any such problem, especially with its kickass A/C

Maybe your car has some similar switch that needs adjusting.

I don't think the system is like that in MPFI cars. In MPFI the ac would be on even if the car is idling and the idle rpm is automatically increased by the ecu when the ac is on.

nyways thanx a ton for ur replies.



Naveen,
The Swift VXi neither had climate control ever, not does it have in 2006 models. Only and only the Swift ZXi model boasts of a climate control.

It's a Baleno VXi not a Swift.
