    How can you tell Capt. You're in Saskatchewan. You could just have the vents open and you'd get ice cold air.

    Re: A/C Major Issue - Service Tag

    So my beautiful red SRX sits disassembled at the dealer who is now out of ideas on how to fix the AC. Initially, it blew only warm air on the right side and hot air at the driver when it was over 80* out. They changed the compressor, the condenser, a valve kit, and a filter. Presto, I now have 32* air blowing at me for about 20 minutes until the whole system freezes and stops sending out air. Now they've changed out the evaporator but no help. Dealer is very friendly and has now called Detroit for help for the third time since they don't know what else to do. Anyone got any suggestions out there?

    Just a WAG but have they updated you to the latest software revision? It could be something related to the software control system.

    I'm thinking along those same lines, or maybe the whole computer module that controls the A/C is bad. Reason being, sounds like they've already replaced all of the major "hardware" parts. What's left? Software.

    Dunno if they have checked software but I do know that both the high and low side pressure are way high since the original repair. Don't think that could be caused by software??? They think the problem is related to the pressure but can't figure what is left to cause it.

    Shouldn't the compressor cycle off at periodic intervals based on environmental conditions; this would mean either a sensor is not working or software is not reading the sensor properly and that is why the system is freezing.

    Could it be as easy as calibration?

    Re: A/C Major Issue - Service Tag

    Its going on 2 weeks since I got my SRX reprogrammed with the newest software. Lo and behold I have not had a problem with the A/C yet. I was very skeptical that the re-program would fix it, but so far it seems to have worked. We have been having very hot and humid days this past week, so I would have noticed the problem if it started happening again. Hopefully I did not just jinx myself!

    GM Jim, I think all the software engineers are in India, or soon will be. Maybe we can check there.

    Yeah. Why don't you hop on a one-way plane and let us know.

    I might do that, always wantd to go there. Might stop by Japan first to see what Nissan and Toyota are doing with all the profits, and the jobs that you rice burner lovers keep sending them.

    Steve, I think I want to see you and GMJim in one of those celebrity boxing matches. Anybody else interested in tickets for that match?

    Last time I check both employee U.S. workers right here in the States. But don't let that stop you from going. Stay as long as they'll have you. (short trip, )
