I have a 98 Civic EX and have some a/c problems. I have read alot online and trouble shot what I could find but can't figure it out.
The condenser fan only works intermittently? Mostly not at all but it does work every once in a while. I thought I had fixed it last night as I switched the relays for the radiator fan and condenser fan to see if that was it, cleaned the ground by the fan and on top of the condenser and a really dirty ground by the air inlet box on the left side that was really really dirty, washed it off as I just used vinegar (didn't have anything else to use, heard this was ok in a pinch) started it up and the fan worked perfectly! let it run for about 15 mins with no problems, cycled it on and off by pushing the a/c switch inside and it would turn on and off just fine! Went to bed feeling great! Woke up this morning and started it up and turned on the a/c, popped the hood to be sure the fan was on and nothing............... cycled it a few times with no luck...... What am I missing? Can't be a fuse, fan does work so the motor is good, relays must be good, cleaned the grounds.. Could it be when I cleaned them it worked as they were also wet too? Any help would be greatly appreciated as it is very warm here, 102 today. Thanks again!
