Having an air conditioner issue, especially in summer, can be a small but very constraining detail. In the city centre, you willingly open the windows of your Mazda 5 to let in air, but when you get on fast roadways, it quickly becomes complicated.
It could very well sometimes blow hot air while you asked it cold air, or it may well work intermittently.
You might not wish to pay repair costs without knowing if you could do it by yourself to repair your Mazda 5.
The goal of this article is to make it possible for you identify these possible problems in order to fix them as quickly as possible.
First, we will try to target the symptoms you identify on the air conditioning failure of your Mazda 5.

Different symptoms on your Mazda 5 air conditioner

You realize that it is no longer effective, for example:
It works in the beginning to finally only return moisture and run out very very fast, or it works yet 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 Mazda 5, it is 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 really recommend you to request the advice of a specialist and not do this alone, it carries great risks for your Mazda 5 and more importantly your own health.
This factor is partly due to the wear and tear of time, but also to the quality of your air conditioning system. To put it plainly, if you have a top quality car, you are in theory much less bothered with this type of problem.
Also check you keep the air conditioning in good state all year round.
What does that mean? Plainly use it every now and then for short moments during the year, which allows to avoid a “rust” of the system on your Mazda 5. 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 Mazda 5 air conditioner

Next let’s look at some of the difficulties you may face on your Mazda 5. 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 pointed out above, you may have a gas leak and as a result 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, as a result no more pressure in the system.
Attached to this compressor of your Mazda 5, a pulley allows for 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 related and that each piece has a vital importance, just like a chain work, a single lacking link and the whole 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 turned on in order to stop the operation for safety. We can think about here the work of a protection fuse on the electrical circuit of your Mazda 5.
Regarding the temperature sensor, there may also be a failure. Just imagine that it is no longer able to determine the temperature of the inside of your Mazda 5. As a result, it does not know what to give the computer as data, which will lead to the air conditioning being switched off as a result of the lack of consistent data to be processed. Here again the air conditioning will have been turned off by the computer for safety reasons in order to avoid improbable situations, for example, where it is regarded as hot in your Mazda 5 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 reload your air conditioning with gas, it varies from 40 to 60€.
If, on the other hand, you had to change your compressor, it would cost about 350€ new, much cheaper second-hand, around 150€.
So here is a set of complications you might face on your Mazda 5, as you guessed, in most cases it is better to call on a specialist to avoid potentially major accidents. Remember that in the case of air conditioning, you deal with compressed gas that is dangerous if you are not careful.
