Today, Hyundai has a strong presence in the U.S. and the rest of the globe with its Tucson  models. It is an affordable car that offers great performance and comfort at a reasonable price, making it an ideal choice for many drivers today.

Although the Hyundai Tucson is very reliable, there are times when problems can occur on the vehicle’s electrical system which can cause issues with your AC system. If you find that your AC does not work properly, then you should be able to get some assistance from this article to help you get it working again.

Clean the air cabin filter

One of the most common problems that can occur on the Tucson is an air cabin filter that has become clogged. If this happens, then your AC will not be able to get rid of any impurities from the air that you are breathing in.

After you have removed it, you should check whether there is any dirt or debris that has accumulated inside it. If there is any dirt or debris inside, then you should take it out and clean it with some water and a vacuum cleaner before putting it back into place.

Check if the refrigerant is leaking

Another common problem that can occur on the Tucson is a leak in the refrigerant system. This is a very serious issue because it can lead to further damages if you don’t stop it in time.

To check whether there is a leak in your Tucson’s refrigerant system, you should take it to an expert for assistance. They will be able to check whether there is any refrigerant leaking from your AC unit and will be able to identify the source of the leak so that they can fix it properly.

Replace the compressor and pressure cap

If the problem is with the refrigerant system, then it is possible that your compressor may have failed and is no longer working properly. This will cause your air cabin to not be able to cool properly and you will find that it gets very hot inside.

You should take it to an expert so they can replace it with a new one. You should also take a look at the pressure cap on your compressor so that you can make sure that there is no debris or dirt in there which would damage the compressor.

Check if the airflow valve is faulty

If there are any issues with your air cabin system, then it is possible that there may be a fault with your airflow valve. If this happens, then it will be unable to properly ventilate the air inside of your vehicle’s cabin as well as prevent condensation from forming on its inner walls.

This can lead to further problems with other parts of your Tucson such as its battery or heater core as well as lead to an increase in engine temperature and an increase in fuel consumption.
