I have owned numerous cars with broken a/c systems.
- Having a vehicle that loses its ability to run an onboard a/c is really common.
Typically, a broken a/c in a vehicle is simply caused by leaking fluid. There are numerous strange locales in the vehicle where the dangerous refrigerant for the a/c is needed, plus if even a single of those ever starts leaking, the a/c stops working. With all of this past experience with a broken a/c, I have never owned a vehicle where the entire heating program stopped working, until sureterday. With modern vehicles, a/cs are nice to have, however they aren’t necessary. However, I can tell you, having a working heating program is an absolute necessity. With your onboard gas furnace, it is really likely that you won’t be able to see anything at all while you drive while in the winter… Your heating program actually allows you to be able to keep your window from fogging up while driving in the winter. What I didn’t realize was that some car gas furnaces can go bad, causing your entire heating program to blow anti-freeze into the windows, now, the whole heating program that used to prevent the windows from fogging up at all is causing your windows to get even foggier. The only single way to prevent this is by opening a window, which means that of course your vehicle will get cold. Your vehicle getting increasingly freezing causes you to need to turn on your heating program more in response. It is a really self-defeating cycle. I had to take our vehicle into the local mechanic to have them fix our heating program because it is simply not safe to drive without a gas furnace.
