Default Climate control A/C light flashing- means???

I've noticed on my '04 Xl-7 (fitted with climate control) that every now and again the aircon (A/C) light on the temperature control will flash on/off at about once per second. This usually happens with the A/C on and in manual mode (ie. all the controls are out of the "auto" positions.)

The owner's manual doesn't say anything about it- anyone got any ideas on what it might be? A search didn't turn up anything.

Default I may be wrong but my guess is.....

....low refrigerant pressure.

My honda accord A/C light blinks when the low pressure switch isn't made.....and the A/C compressor will not turn on, to keep from cratering itself. Evacuated and recharged the system and I was good to go.

Dono why it went low (probably from years of sitting before I got it) and the new charge is still holding so....go figure.

Maybe....just maybe....it'll be that easy for ya.

Best of Luck!

Interesting.

The strange part is the aircon works the best out of the three cars we own- and the other cars are newer. I've also seen it flash when the A/C is turned off. At first I though it was an indication the set temp couldn't be reached unless the A/C was turned on, but then I saw it do it with the A/C on as well.

Have had the same issue with my 04, as Murcod indicated, the A/C works fine!

Doing a search over the Internet, I found the following information that may be useful to you. It seems that all we need to do is reset the A/C because the blinking indicates error codes stored in memory for some unknown reason.

Nice find Zuki!

What website is the info from- it's a bit hard to make out the settings on the dials?

To be honest....I don't remember, it was several months ago, I just remember searching through google and yahoo! and browsed through a lot of pages until I found that file...it was in a forum by the way.

The configuration is quite easy to set up and it really works, at least it solved my A/C's blinking
