Hello friends.,My i10 era's ac is not effective.It is just 5 months old and the temperature of ac is not satisfactory.even if the temperature knob is set to coolest still it takes a whole lot of time to cool n still no chilling effect.In my friend's 1998 zen the ac is so good that it gives the chilling effect in initial 10 to 15 mins only.how to change the coolest level of the ac beyond the temperature knob??

clogged filters or low gas pressure might be the issue.

check with the hyundai service centre .probably they can rectify it within no time.

Since your car is new, i would suggest you to take it to the Authorized Service Center and get it inspected. The i10 AC is pretty effective, be it old gen or the current gen.

Also switch on the Re-circulation with AC which helps the cabin get cool quicker.

I think everybody has told you what to do already , i also suggest the same.


Maybe because of the searing heat also you may have a feeling the AC is not cooling properly.

I meant maruti zen 1998 not the old gen..!!that car did not have any sun film.

The ac is always set on re circulation only.if the reason is the filter or gas prob then would it negatively affect the pickup or mileage after rectifying it?bcos its pic up already is very poor after i i switch on the ac.

master, hyundai A.S.S. is a big joke. They just keep mum whenever you complaint. A friend of mine has filed a case in consumer court for the steering rattle, however they are trying hard to ignore it.

That's the sole reason for dropping sales on hyundai cars.

On SX4 side no luck as yet. Adopted a wait and watch approach currently.

If it is not a compressor oil leakage / compressor failure / gas leakage, it can be due to

Compressor belt loosening
Electrical connections / fuse - On-OFF issues

Check & revert
