When you switch the A/C on, the A/C compressor engages and puts an extra LOAD on the engine. The engine has to work harder to drive the A/C system. This extra load causes heat inside the engine and the coolant must carry this extra heat away. As the coolant picks up more of the heat, you will see the temp rise. Once you disengage the A/C, the coolant doesn't have this extra heat to carry so the temp goes back to normal operating temp.

Where is the switch that turns on radiator fans on 1995 Chrysler new yorker?

The engine computer uses the coolant temperature sensor and the air conditioning pressure transducer to decide when to operate the radiator fan. The coolant temperature sensor is located near the thermostat housing on top of the engine. The ac transducer is on the line between the compressor and condenser.The engine computer uses the coolant temperature sensor and the air conditioning pressure transducer to decide when to operate the radiator fan.

What is diagnostic code P0118 for Dodge Caravan?

Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit High Input The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor screwed into a coolant passage in the cylinder head. Sensor resistance is high when coolant temperature is low and resistance drops when coolant temperature increases. The powertrain control module (PCM) provides a 5 volt reference and a ground to the sensor. The PCM monitors voltage drop to determine coolant temperature. If the ECT reads less than freezing temp. when engine has been running for more than a few minutes, the PCM determines a circuit fault and sets this code. Or if the PCM determines the sensor resistance is out of specs, this code is set.


How does automobile air conditioning work?

A fan in the engine brings air in then the coolant or the heater cools or heats it then it comes up the pipes and out the vents. You can adjust the temperature with the buttons on the dash board.
