Air conditioner making noise???

Ok so I used the air conditioner for the first time in 6 months lol. Anyway it makes this rhythmic click noise every 3-4 seconds. When I turn it off it goes away. Should I even worry about it?

Is it the compressor cycling? If it's cycling that often it's low on refrigerant.

If its a simple fix I'll do it myself. Jeep dealers charge up the a$$. How hard it it to fix?

Get a recharge kit from an auto store or Walmart and follow the instructions on the can

I know you guys get warm down there in Texas, but, sheesh, you have the AC on already?!

I had to ask the guy I bought my Jeep from when I first got it and was looking in the engine compartment and saw the AC unit, if this thing really had AC. Seemed kind of redundant in a Jeep to me!

I've never used mine, although it works, and in fact, have the fuse pulled for it!

28 degrees here and just got hammered by 10-12 inches of wet, sloppy, slippery snow here!

Crank the freaking heater!! That works VERY well in Jeep.

Yeah,
Get the kit for recharging AC by yourself. Read directions.

First, you need to determine if that is indeed what you're hearing. If so, and the refrigerant is low, you should find out where it's leaking. Yeah, you could just add some R134 every year, but that's a half-assed way of "fixing" it. If you have no knowledge or experience with auto A/C, just take it to someone who does.

You would be suprised... Today it was 92 degrees in the deep south texas. In my neck of the woods will be dropping down to the 70s the next couple of days due to a cool front.




My ac always keep making clicking noises and hums pretty loud. I know for a fact I don't need a recharge since it blows stupid cold air that I have to turn off the AC at times.

Fix is easy, just take a regular tire pump, fill it with coolant, ie radiator fluid, hook it up to your ac line, and pump. This will lubricate, and recharge your ac.
