Hey guys, I have a 2011 Mazda 3. The air conditioning won’t work. Put a jumper in for the ac relay and the compressor kicks on but the coolant fan doesn’t. Even with the compressor running it still blows out hot air. Any suggestions?

Yes, it was recharged last year but the ac still wouldn’t kick on without the jumper being in

If you have a leak in the system there will be no freon so it will be warm air, sounds like you probably have a large leak somewhere.

You could try to put a can of freon in to see if the system spits out cold air for a little while, if so then for sure you have a leak. You can also listen carefully for a hissing sound after putting the freon in

When I got my 2013 M3 the radio and a/c were inoperable, it was just a fuse, no problems since.
Was the a/c worked on? Compressor replaced?
Sometimes mechanics get lazy and won’t replace the washer seals between the compressor and a/c lines which will make the system only work for a few days.
