Keeping the temperature constant in your car is one of the best ways of preventing accidents. When your vehicle is at room temperature, you’ll have much less trouble concentrating than if you’re sweating or shivering. For this reason, having a functioning AC is crucial. If your car AC’s not working, you should send your Toyota dealer a message and book an appointment. We can quickly diagnose and fix the problem at our service center.
Driving with a faulty car AC is dangerous for several reasons. Hot conditions inside your car could cause you to lose concentration, and sometimes, a broken AC can indicate a serious problem with your electrical system, which could cause further damage to your car. What’s more, if you or one of your passengers has a condition that makes them heat sensitive, like diabetes, thyroid issues, or multiple sclerosis, staying in a car that is very hot could be dangerous.
As soon as you notice a problem, you should visit your local dealership, where your car can be diagnosed and repaired. We only employ highly trained technicians, and we always use genuine Toyota parts when working on your car. Therefore, you don’t risk voiding your warranty, and your Toyota won’t be damaged by parts that don’t fit it well.
Why Is My AC Faulty?
There are many reasons why your AC might not be working. Often, the problem is simple to fix, in which case you’ll be able to take your car home on the same day. For example, the vehicle might be leaking refrigerant, or your condenser could be clogged or broken.
Sometimes, an electrical issue can prevent the AC from working properly. In this case, further diagnosis and more extensive work might be necessary, and you might have to leave your car at the dealership overnight.
Does My Warranty Cover the AC?
Whether your AC is covered by your warranty depends on the cause of the issue and the age of your car. The standard Toyota warranty lasts for three years or 36,000 miles, but air conditioning recharges are only covered for one year. However, if the fault is caused by a component that isn’t usually affected by wear and tear, your warranty will pay for the repairs. The best way to find out whether you’re covered is to ask your Toyota mechanic directly.
If your car AC’s faulty, the best person to contact is your local brand-name dealership. We only employ highly trained professionals, so you won’t risk further problems with your car. Depending on the age of your car and the reason for your issue, you might still be covered by your warranty, in which case you won’t have to pay for the repairs.
