Why isn’t my air conditioner working?

There are a few different reasons the airflow in your vehicle may be weak. Mold and mildew may be to blame, as they can accumulate from the residual moisture that occurs. This can block the air from reaching the vents. Another likely cause is that the blower hose supplying cold air to the blower unit has become loose or that the ventilation fan isn’t working. Additionally, one of the many seals that help keep everything in check under the hood could be loose, which will allow some air to escape.
