Default Why did the air conditioner in my 2002 Civic stop working?

The comfort fan still blows but the air is not being cooled. I checked the fuse for the condenser fan and that's OK. I don't think that it dumped the coolant because it stopped cooling all at once. System was inspected less than six months ago and everything was in good working order. Is there an in-line fuse / fusible link in this system? Car is a 2002 Honda Civic Si with standard AC. The rest of the electrical system seems to be working OK (lights, radiator fan, power locks, et al). Thanks.

Another common problem with the a/c system in your gen civic is what is called the "thermal connector" It is essentially much like a fuselink for the system causing complete shut down of the a/c. it is an absolute pain in the butt to replace as all the belts need to come off, the p/s pump and then the compressor. Would do all the proper voltage checks and continuity tests, but this is a very common problemGood luck

Coolant is for your radiator... you need to check the freon ... you probably have a leak somewhere... get your compressor checked too

They have a gas, and that dries up and then holes appear in the pipe. It's because, if you don't use it - it just fails. Unfortunately, it will cost a fortune to repair. For comparison, my best friend (who is a young lady) took her Mercedes-Benz CLK 320CDI to get it fixed, they quoted her $4000.
