Thread: Air Conditioning

    I have a 96 120" Limo and the air in the rear does not seem to blow out and cool as it should. Of course, I am freezing my *!% off in the front and my passengers are not that comfortable. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to be able to go into the dealership and tell them my thoughts other than hearing that the air has a long way to travel to the rear. Are there any solutions, please? Do I need to seek out an air conditioning specialist?

    One suggestion is to call the manufactuer of the limousine and obtain a list or the location of service facility's for the manufactuer in your area. Or contact a Ford dealership with a limo care facility, the dealership may be able to offer assistance or refer you to an a/c repair shop.

    Sincerely,

    Sounds like good advice to me above my message.

    I have had similar problems and found that the evaporator & condensor both needed replaced for the back unit to get cold enough. And the system charged as it was abit low on gas.

    I had to take the car to a Ford dealer.

    Good Luck!

    In addition to the rear units coil and condensor make sure the hose that takes the air to the rear is free of sharp bends and kinks, and is not too long, I once removed nearly ten feet of spare hose and thereby shortened the lines. Also check the connections from the hose to the outlets in the rear, sometimes they come off. And of course the freon level even half a pound makes a huge difference.

    The replies to this message seem to operate on the assumption that there IS a rear A/C unit. This is an option on most limousines. If the operator bought this car pre-owned from an operator in Minnesota, or some other cold-weather location, it may not have a rear A/C. If not, check with the coach builder about a retro-fit. What part of the country are you in?

    Thanks everyone for your response. I am in Indianapolis. The problem has finally been resolved. The explanation given was that there are two sets of identical wires (I am sorry I do not remember where they are connected) that were reversed in the connection. Now, it is finally cold in the rear and the blowers are knocking wigs off. And there is only one unit in my limo.
