    The Eternal AC Struggle

    It got a little warm here today, so I hit the AC button. And nothing happened...

    No freon so pump/compressor won't turn on? Good luck.

    I think it's electrical this time. Haven't had time to dig in though. It's just frustrating that it's ALWAYS broken, though in different ways each time. Honestly, is there no way to make a Honda AC work past the magical 10 year mark?

    When you pressed the AC button you did have the fan on at least the first speed....rookie?

    LOL. You mean THAT'S the problem! OMG.

    Turns out to be the ECU. I had swapped it out with another during the winter. I put the old one back and it works again! Around here, with summer temps up to 110F for weeks on end, AC is pretty important.
