There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Honda Insight A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2005 Honda A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Honda Insight
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2005 Honda Insight A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Honda Insight A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2005 Honda Insight, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Honda guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2005 Honda Insight A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Honda Insight A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2005 Honda Insight? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Insight — without all the sweat puddles!
