Convenient & Local 2012 Jeep Compass A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your Jeep Compass

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Jeep Compass?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Jeep vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2012 Jeep. Steer your Jeep Compass to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2012 Jeep Compass’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Jeep Compass A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Compass A/C Recharge

While your 2012 Jeep Compass’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Jeep guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2012 Jeep Compass A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Jeep Compass A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Jeep Compass A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2012 Jeep Compass? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Compass’s A/C!

2012 Jeep Compass A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Compass air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Compass A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Compass’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
