Heating not working

If your heating is not working My Auto Shop can get it sorted with an Air Conditioning Inspection. Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

How a Air Conditioning Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

A qualified mechanic or auto electrician will go check over your entire air conditioning system to understand whats causing the issue, including the electrical side of the system. They will then check the AC gas level and ensure there are no leaks from any of the hoses or compressor.

If required the mechanic will provide a quote for necessary repairs or replacement parts.

When your heating is not working its often as a result of a:

  • Low Coolant Level
  • Blown Fuse
  • Bad Heater Core
  • Air Pockets in the Heater Core or Hoses
  • Malfunctioning Thermostat
  • Bad Blower
  • Loss of Refrigerant
  • Bad Compressor
  • Leaking Hoses
  • Failing Condenser
  • Failing Condenser Fan
  • Faulty Low Pressure Cutout Switch
  • Faulty Blower Motor or Resistor

Popular services linked to a Air Conditioning Inspection:

Cabin Filter Replacement

To keep pollen and other dirt from blowing into your car through the vents, there are cabin air filters. They are often a source of a car’s ‘smell’ and are best maintained to keep your ride fresh.

Heater Hose Replacement

Your heater hoses are your best friend on a cold morning. These circulate hot coolant from the engine and use it to warm you up. As these hoses are constantly having water flow through them and at great temperatures, they do eventually wear down and need replacing.

AC Re Gas

In hot New Zealand summers, your air con gets a real workout. As a result the gas in the system is recycled and reused constantly. Like anything, this leads to small leaks and loss of the gas over time. Without the refrigeration gas, your air con system is just pumping air from outside the car to inside without any cooling effect.

Fan Speed Resistor Replacement

The ability to turn up or down the fan speed for your car’s air con is the key function of the fan speed resistor. It simply restricts the amount of power the blower fan receives, which in turn limits the speed the fan works at. Typically fan speed resistors fail as a result of overheating, which can cause a short in the system melting the resistor or any of its connections.
