Convenient & Local 2011 Honda Ridgeline A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your Honda Ridgeline

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Honda Ridgeline?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2011 Honda A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Honda Ridgeline

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2011 Honda Ridgeline A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Honda Ridgeline A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Honda Ridgeline

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2011 Honda Ridgeline, 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 the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2011 Honda Ridgeline A/C recharges.

Other Honda Ridgeline A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Honda Ridgeline A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2011 Honda Ridgeline? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Ridgeline — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 2011 Honda Ridgeline A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Ridgeline air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my Ridgeline A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Ridgeline's A/C system.
