    Default Bad Cultus AC

    Hi folks.... i have 2005 model cultus with compant fitted CNG.

    1. Since day one its AC has severely underperformed. I have had it checked a number of times and am told that nothing is seemingly wrong with it. But we melt like icecream does in summers still. The gas level in it is ok by the way. Some mechanics told me that i have to get some hot air pipes blocked and stuff like that but im not too sure.

    2. The idle RPM of my car goes haywire after i switch off the AC. Mostly it drops to some 500 and switches off after considerable vibration when standing still.

    Any good mechanics or helpful hints would be highly appreciated.

    thanks a zillion !!!

    Bro, this sound strange, Cultus has a reasonable A/C, I myself have one, though its on Petrol... I think you are having a problem of heated up car... the cooling system of the car seems to be the problem, Hotter is the car, lesser is the performance of the A/C...

    You can do 2 things... get your radiator and Fan checked properly.. Get you A/C pulled out and get the lines "pressure flushed" properly.

    On the other hand the RPM has to come down when you switch off your A/C, its doing apposite, this mean the Adlib switch is also not working properly...

    The problem of having vibration before switching off mean that your car is Advance and most probably abnormally hot when you switch it off..

    i'd say your problem is with the Car's engine Cooling system...

    though i am not an expert..but i can give you a suggestion if this could help u.....just disconnect the heater pipe and get the a/c pipe direct from engine...it will increase your ac cooling...

    the same thing happind with my cultus 1 week back.
    i show my car to the A/C mechanic.
    he told me tht the hot air is coming in from the A/C filter .
    he blocked the A/c filter.
    & now the A/c is working like zero meter car.

    go & check ur A/c to the mechanic

    Man AC will not work in Santro(mine),Alto(mine),Cultus(cousine),Cuore(frie nd) and Mehran(friend).
    I put my sign Under it.
    and yep i havent only tested but also wasted money!

    if you want AC in that budget. get 2nd hand Civic and pray you sre lucky enough with your purchase.

    bhai if u want better Ac go for bigger Engine. if u go for 1300+ cc engines you will really enjoy Ac. Smaller engines are for economy not for luxury bhai.

    I have 2001 model and its A/C works perfectly well. Three years ago, I blocked the heater pipes (while servicing, a/c wala suggested it) and i never have any problem and i drive with a/c all the times. But I don't run on CNG as my fuel cost is between 3 - 3.5K per month.

    Problem during summer which I face in Cultus is only that its cabin heat up very quickly. Pathetic plastic they use and no insulation on roof, thats why it takes time to cool the cabin.

    My friend has 2006 model but i am surprised to see that a/c never cools, it is indeed pathetic and Suzuki did decline the quality of a/c or it may be due to CNG.

    well bro this same problem is with my cultus usually its A/C works good but during day time like 12 pm or so A/C just like dies....bhai theres no fault in car or A/C its the weather tht is responsible. even in accord when i use A/C when its less hot sometimes i have to switch it off but during noon if i go out i have to switch A/C to full power and then lower it to 3 or 4 point.....

    one more thing just make sure u clean ur radiator and the A/C grills cause it is also another reason why A/C doesnt work properly. so just blow any dust out from the radiator...

    @rajafahad
    you may be from karachi but in lahore situation is different.
    difference in outside climate plays a huge role.

    the problem is ac works 200% at night and 50% at days
    where 100% is required at any instance.
