Ac Light Indicator Flashing


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone..Quick question!! I have a 98 ES300. I am in Jacksonville, FL and it has been raining heavily during the afternoon since the beginning of the week. I noticed that my AC light indicator was flashing, then the cold air would disappear. I then turn off the ac, then turn i back on. All system go after that. Cold air is back. All this happened while I was driving very slowly, about 20 mph on a 1 1/2 inch of water for 5 minutes.

Anyone have any insights on why the AC light would flash during these heavy rain? Any other day is fine. AC workd great. I do most my minor maintenance, had the AC recharged last month. Thanks in advance..

The a/c light is flashing because it thinks that the compresor is locked up.The compressor stops turning because the drive belt is slipping when it gets wet.Adjust belt tension.

Appreciate that insight Eric. I will go ahead and make adjustments on the compressor. thanks again!!
