Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Insufficient cooling

Component Function Check

Symptom

  • Insufficient cooling
  • No cool air comes out. (Airflow volume is normal.)

INSPECTION FLOW

1. CONFIRM SYMPTOM BY PERFORMING OPERATION CHECK - TEMPERATURE DECREASE

  1. Press the AUTO switch.
  2. Turn temperature control dial (driver side) counterclockwise until 18C (60F) is displayed.
  3. Check for cold air at discharge air outlets.

2. CHECK FOR ANY SYMPTOMS

Perform a complete operational check and check for any symptoms.

3. CHECK FOR SERVICE BULLETINS

Check for any service bulletins.

4. CHECK DRIVE BELTS

Check compressor belt tension.

5.CHECK SETTING OF TEMPERATURE SETTING TRIMMER

Using CONSULT, check the setting of "TEMP SET CORRECT" on "WORK SUPPORT" of HVAC.

  1. Check that the temperature setting trimmer is set to "+ direction". NOTE: The control temperature can be set with the setting of the temperature setting trimmer.
  2. Set temperature control dial to "0".

6.CHECK WITH SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION OF CONSULT

  1. Using CONSULT, perform "SELF-DIAGNOSIS RESULTS" of HVAC.
  2. Check if any DTC No. is displayed in the trouble diagnosis results.

NOTE: If DTC is displayed along with DTC U1000 or U1010, first diagnose the DTC U1000 or U1010.

7.CHECK WITH ACTIVE TEST OF CONSULT

  1. Using CONSULT, perform "HVAC TEST""ACTIVE TEST" of HVAC to check each output device. Refer to HAC-26, "CONSULT Function". NOTE: Perform the ACTIVE TEST after starting the engine because the compressor is operating.
  2. Refer to the table and check the outlet, inlet, airflow temperature, blower motor control signal, magnet clutch operation, and air mix ratio. Visually check each operating condition, by listening for noise, touching air outlets with a hand, etc.

11. CHECK REFRIGERANT PURITY

  1. Connect recovery/recycling equipment to vehicle.
  2. Confirm refrigerant purity in supply tank using recovery/recycling and refrigerant indentifier.

12. CHECK REFRIGERANT PRESSURE

Check refrigerant pressure with manifold gauge connected.

13. CHECK FOR EVAPORATOR FREEZE-UP

Start engine and run A/C. Check for evaporator freeze-up.

NOTE: Evaporator freeze up usually occurs at sustained highway speeds in hot, humid conditions with blend door at full cold and blower on low speed, after 1-3 hours of continuous driving.
