Here are some simple steps to take when your AC isn’t working properly on your Nissan Rogue.

Faulty Cooling Fan Motor – The motor for turning the cooling fans is on the top of your AC unit and can be damaged if you put too much weight on it. It’s also possible that something is causing the fan motor to not turn properly or to not work at all.

To fix this, you will need to take off all the parts in your car, remove all the junk that is in the fan motor, and clean out all the junk that is inside before putting everything back together again.

Procedures

Here are some simple steps that you can take to fix the AC on your Nissan Rogue:

Open the hood of your car and locate the AC vents. They are located on either side of the windshield. You can find the vents inside the back of the vehicle, by opening the hood or by opening the side windows. Use a small screwdriver to pry the vents open a little so that you can see inside them.

You may have covered wires or fuse boxes in these vents by pulling off any plastic covers. Check for any debris or dirt in the vents, and clean them thoroughly using a vacuum or blowing some air with a blower.

You may also want to use a fine brush to get rid of any dust that may be in your vents. Check for burned-out wires in the vents and if there are any, cut them off with a pair of scissors and dispose of them before putting everything back together again.

Check for any damage to the wiring that is in the vents as well; if you find any damage, then repair it before putting everything back together again by cutting off damaged parts and replacing them.

Now that you have cleaned out all of the vents, you can reassemble them and put everything back together again. If anything looks damaged inside the vents, you may want to take your car to a mechanic to fix it.

You should be able to turn on your AC unit and use it normally again. If you are still having problems with your AC, you may want to take it to a mechanic to have it checked out.
