A/C Button doesn't engage

So this morning my wife told me it was already cold enough so turn off the A/C. I hit the button and off it went. No problems. Then a little while later after I dropped her off at work I try to turn it back on and it won't engage.

When I press the button down the switch lights up, it makes the click noise but when I let go the light turns off. Basically it doesn't engage. The defrost button works fine. When I got to work I tried playing with it a little and if I hold it in about 1/4 inch the A/C engages and I get cold air.

This is on a 2007 Fit with 6,000 miles. Would this be covered under warranty? Or is this something I can easily/quickly fix myself?

Well, turns out my wife got the car 9/4/2006. So tomorrow would be the 3 year mark. Is this something that is expensive to fix?

Our '07 Fit's A/C switch was replaced under warranty for the same reason.



If it's this switch the price is less than $25 USD:

List $ 29.78 Sell $ 22.16

a/c switch

I have a coworker that is having this problem. Has anyone replaced this switch that can give some steps, pics, help, etc? My coworker is an older single female that bought her 07 Fit in July of 06 on my advice. I'm hoping that this is a simple fix that I might be able to help her with and save her some money. Thanks.

My '07 has a similar issue, except that the A/C won't turn off. Given that the temperatures have been in the 90's, this isn't a bad thing right now... but I'll eventually want to turn it off!

The switch itself is probably easy enough to replace, but I'm not sure about the surrounding trim, which will probably have to be removed first. But first I'll just try some electrical contact cleaner...

can you hear the compressor acutally engaging? this happened on my civic and a rock had punctured the line. you can checked the freon levels in the system, and make sure that the ac compressor is engaging when you defrost i believe the compressor turns on automatically with the defrost mode.

This is happening to me as well. What i have been doing is flipping re-circulation switch allowing air from outside to come in back and forth until it turns on. Hope this can temp solve the problem. I think it helps the AC switch make contact and engages it.

This is the exact problem that I just had with my 2009 Honda Fit. The air conditioning was working this morning, then stopped. It works if you hold the button down (and the light comes on). But it you release the button, the light goes off, and the compressor no longer engages (and therefore, the air that blows is not cold).

What solved your problem?

Thanks!

Sounds like the switch is faulty. No big deal to pull the surrounding panel off to get at it.
