2012 Jeep Patriot A/C Repair Near You

A/C Repair Service for Your Jeep Patriot

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Jeep Patriot A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Jeep vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2012 Jeep. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Jeep Patriot

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2012 Jeep Patriot A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Jeep Patriot A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Jeep Patriot

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2012 Jeep Patriot, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Jeep’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2012 Jeep Patriot A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Jeep Patriot A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Jeep Patriot A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include 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 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 2012 Jeep Patriot? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Patriot’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2012 Jeep Patriot A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Patriot air conditioner 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 is my Patriot A/C blowing hot air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 Patriot's A/C system.
