Ok Scotty - I'm about ready to drive my car out to you! You addressed this once before... A/C ISSUE!
Here's a summary.
AC Went out > Compressor / Rec/Drier REPLACED ($1400)
AC Went out > Compressor / Rec/Drier REPLACED (warranty)
AC Went out DEALER REPLACED ENTIRE A/C SYSTEM!!! ($2400)
(dealer "ate" the above $1400 plus my $2400)
LITERALLY DROVE IT HOME AND PARKED IT < 200 miles traveled from dealer A/C WENT OUT!!!!!
From Cold start (sitting 12+ hours)
I cranked the engine, moved the car 5 feet on to my driveway from the yard, went inside, came out, pushed the A/C Button and
POW POW POW POW i heard popping metallic breaking sounds....10 seconds later came hot air.....
I have spoken to Steven at Denso - HE BLAMES "too much oil" in the system. and improper installation...the dealer not to anyones surprise is pointing to my MechMan Alternator which according to the manufacturer is using a Stock Toyota Voltage Regulator. The vehicle does have "specialty equipment" for work including a battery isolator and 0 gauge wiring to a power inverter in the trunk but NONE OF THIS is interacting with the A/C Compressor.... Mechman says no way. Denso says Yeah maybe once in a blue moon if the alternator emits some sort of EMP Burst but that would disable more than your compressor.... but it's probably an oil or bad install issue
PLEASE PLEASE HELP! I've tried calling Toyota's 1-800 number to file a Grievance but they seem to side with them.
