Air Conditioning

I think I have the dumbest question ever. I just bought my used wrangler and thought it was supposed to have AC. While test driving it, I didn't really take that good of a look at the gauge cluster. The vehicle was sold as is and also didn't come with an owners manual.

So here's the dumb question. I'm looking at the gauge cluster and don't see any button labeled AC. How do you turn the AC on in a 2004 Wrangler X? My fear is that I overlooked this feature and the car really doesn't have AC but maybe there's a funky way to turn it on.

There is no AC button. You just turn it on cold and use one of the first (i think) 3 settings. They will have a little snowflake beside the position showing you that it is an AC setting. If you don't have these then I guess you don't have AC!!

Thanks for the quick response. I bid on a user manual on ebay so I'm winging it for now.

It does look like I have 3 snowflakes on the first 3 setting so I guess I'm good. Yahoo!!!!!!

Yeah i hate the style of air control settings that you have to turn the position sensor instead of the fan speed to turn it on. I'm so confused w/ their junk. How about when you want heat coming out for both feet and chest? Do you turn it on to the flake again since there isnt any other setting? lol

Pretty much turn on your ac and step on the gas and you will FEEL when the ac is on. Nicolas-Eric made a custom button that can manually turn off the ac compressor for that so if you insist on having a button you can go ahead and ask him about it.

When you run the defroster, does the AC compressesor kick on?
I don't see a snowflake next to the defog setting.

It kicks on intermittently to help dehumidify. If you listen carefully you can hear it engaging and disengaging. [I have a 1997 Sahara]

you're asking why did he make the button? It comes in useful when its cold outside and you just want some air circulating inside but still warm for the heater.

If you turn it on hot you can still run it on those settings and it will be hot. It will not blow out cold air with the temp indicator set on hot, I do it all the time when I pick up my son so it blows out the top and bottom and inflates the top, but I don't want it cold in there on him.

Yes but even though its set to hot the compressor is still running. I noticed it last night when i was waiting at the drive thru, i had it set to that middle setting on the left. It was all the way to hot on the 2nd speed and the arrow thingy was set to "chest area" with the snowflake. I kept on hearing the compressor turn on and shut off. I put it to the other setting for the chest area on the right side with out a snowflake. I didnt hear a single click and the vents got much much hotter.
