Air conditioner in 2005 jeep wrangler x

When I turn on my air conditioner the cold air only blows out of my defrost vents no matter what I set the control knobs on. On recirculated air nothing comes out anywhere. I had a car stereo put in last winter but not sure if that would have messed up air controls.

    Same problem as he posted for me

  • kcjeep Oct 22, 2008

    Same prob here...had my oil changed and the vacuum line was bumped off.  This quick fix worked instantly once I read this,  identified the loose tube and reinstalled.
    There is still something weird though...When I push in the clutch when stopping at a light, the engine seems to almost stall for a sec and then catches it's breath a couple times...I have a K&N intake installed as well...never had probs like this before the whole vacuum tube thing.  Any ideas what is making this happen anyone?

    Same problem with my '05 Wrangler Limited. I hope it's a disconnected vacuum line under the hood becasue Chrysler will charge a small fortune to fix it. :) THanks for the suggestion!

    Had the same problem and it was the hose, it had fallen right off. I push it back on and everything is back to working order.

    I had to drive without AC for almost a month where I live that could be a problem even with the top down.  Thank you so much for the fix it worked like a charm.

    All I can get out of my heater or ac is through the defrost.

Yeah, I would go up hill or pull away from a stop and the A/C would cut out and then come back once my speed was stabilized. It was a vacuum hose leak !! This mostly affected the upper dash blower fan.

The hose under the hood is located right next to the master brake cylinder. I am grateful for this website and the answer to my nightmare. For weeks i have been driving without air and with all the rain as of late it's been unbareable in there

Air conditioner is not blowing out vents only thru defrost

you still have a vacuum problem... there is a 3rd vacuum door that controls inside or outside air. It is normally set to **** in outside air. When you put it on "max" the 3rd door closes off the outside air and make the fan **** "recirculation" air from inside. That door is somewhere by the passenger side feet. VAacuum loss could be in the selector knob contol system, or a hose

Ice formed on outside of line!

try running the air conditioner in defrost mode. set the temperature to warmest while air conditioner is on, for about two minutes. then slowly move the lever towards cold, all the while having the vent set on outside air. once you move it toward cooler, move the vent switch towards recirculate from outside air.

when you have it on defrost, open the engine hood and push the air conditioner button. watch the lines and see if they begin to build frost. if not, move the slider toward cold a little bit at a time while watching the lines to see if they begin to build frost. if they do start to build frost at any point after running the defroster in A/C mode for a bit, you can always try positioning the temperature control towards the middle or run only the outside instead of recirculating vent.

Air Conditioner Will not turn on Recirculation

there is a selector motor on the side of the heat ac coil box under the dash. it should have 2 or 3 levers on the side of it. it controls the dampeners the select where your air is moving to from the defrost to the bi level to the floor or all of the above find that control module and then turn the car on and start moving the selector switch back and forth slowly while watching that module if its moving the levers then you have a more serious problem and need to have a professional look at it. check to make sure that the levers are even connected and that the wiring harness is even hooked to the control module

if your ac is on max i believe it recirculates the air in the car by sucking air in by the defrost vents and blows it back out of the normal vents try to move the controls to make sure the that the shutters are working and make sure the ac is not on max by selecting the knob that has an arrow going through the little car instead of the circular one that might fix the problem
