Having an air conditioner trouble, especially in summer, can be a little but very constraining detail. In the city centre, you willingly open the windows of your Chrysler 200 to let in air, but the minute you get on fast roadways, it quickly becomes complicated.
It can sometimes blow hot air while you asked it cold air, or it may well work intermittently.
You might not want to pay repair costs without finding out if you may possibly do it by yourself to repair your Chrysler 200.
The aim of this article is to help you detect these possible problems in order to fix them as promptly as possible.
First, we will try to aim for the symptoms you figure out on the air conditioning failure of your Chrysler 200.
Different symptoms on your Chrysler 200 air conditioner
You realize that it is no longer effective, for example:
It works initially to finally only return moisture and run out very very fast, or it works but with a particularly long time to cool effectively. Or also simpler, it just does not cool down anymore.
First thing to think about at this point on your Chrysler 200, it is very likely that the gas charge is too limited. This could mean that there is a potential leak in the circuit. If this were the case, we strongly recommend you to seek the advice of a specialist and not do this on your own, it carries great risks for your Chrysler 200 and more essentially your own health.
This factor is partly due to the wear and tear of time, but also to the level of quality of your air conditioning system. To put it simply, if you have a high-end car, you are theoretically much less bothered with this type of problem.
Also make sure you keep the air conditioning in good state all year round.
What does that mean? Simply use it every now and then for short moments throughout the year, which allows to avoid a “rust” of the system on your Chrysler 200. It uses up slightly more fuel, but since replacing your air conditioning system is much more costly, you profit in the long run.
Different problems on your Chrysler 200 air conditioner
Next let’s look at some of the problems you may face on your Chrysler 200. Remember that your air conditioner system is a very complicated system, made up of a multitude of parts that can potentially lead to failure.
First, as mentioned above, you may have a gas leak and consequently no pressure in the system.
Also, it is therefore likely that your compressor is out of order. Same observation as above, it is no longer possible to compress the gas, consequently no more pressure in the system.
Attached to this compressor of your Chrysler 200, a pulley enables it to rotate. If this one were to stop working, a chain reaction would occur with the compressor stopping, and consequently as mentioned above, no gas compression, no pressure…
We realize here that everything is linked and that each piece has a crucial importance, just like a chain work, a single missing link and the complete chain is stopped.
Another sensitive point, still on the theme of pressure, if by chance a too great pressure was felt in the circuit, a sensor will then be activated in order to stop the operation for protection. We can imagine here the work of a protection fuse on the electrical circuit of your Chrysler 200.
About the temperature sensor, there may also be a failure. Just imagine that it is no longer able to identify the temperature of the inside of your Chrysler 200. As a result, it does not detect what to give the computer as information, which will lead to the air conditioning being switched off as a result of the lack of consistent data to be dealt with. Here again the air conditioning will have been turned off by the computer for security reasons in order in order to avoid improbable situations, for example, where it is considered hot in your Chrysler 200 and sends cold when it is the opposite.
If you were to employ a professional, here is an idea of the prices you would have to pay:
Let’s imagine that you recharge your air conditioning with gas, it varies from 40 to 60€.
If, on the other hand, you had to replace your compressor, it would cost about 350€ new, much more affordable second-hand, around 150€.
So here is a set of problems you might face on your Chrysler 200, as you thought, in most cases it is better to call on a professional to avoid potentially major accidents. Remember that in the case of air conditioning, you work with compressed gas that is dangerous if you are not careful.
