they could not find the problem on my2008 cr-v with 99250 miles so i tinkered and found if i revved the engine to 1500 rpm and then turned the a c on sparks would fly from the clutch after i showed the service manager this they put in a new coil, clutch and compressor for fifty dollars [they called it a deductible]
good luck andy
Just a word to the wise here...
The A/C compressor on our 2003 CRV that has 78,000 miles started making some funny sounds and blowing hot air off and on. I had it looked at and it was confirmed the compressor was failing. From that point forward I have NOT turned on my A/C! A new compressor is on it's way to me.
If the A/C compressor TOTALLY fails, it CAN throw metal throughout the entire system and you will have to replace every component at great expense.
So, if you hear the signs of impending doom, shut it down until you can get the compressor replaced!
Naturally it picked the hottest week of the year to do this!
My 2008 CR-V started blowing warm air, intermittently, this summer. I remembered getting a letter from Honda USA so I pulled it out of the file and found the warranty extension. Since my extended warranty was close to lapsing, I scheduled an inspection at my local Honda Dealer, Borman Honda in Las Cruces, NM. No problems with them, inspection revealed signs of failure on the clutch and coil. Parts replaced promptly, My system had lost about 3 oz of refrigerant so I paid $120 for a recharge. I have 92000 miles and have owned the car since Dec 2007.
After buying a new compressor and having it installed, I learned it was NOT bad. It was the expansion valve that was bad which caused the compressor to cycle on and off quickly.
The guy who did the work said the old compressor was just fine!
