AC failure is a known (but rare) problem with the TSX, but it mostly seems to happen with the 2004s.

If you have had your AC compressor go out, post here and include the following:
Year of your TSX
Approximate miles when AC failed (if you remember)
And include any other info you feel relevant

The more data we can gather about this, the better!

04 with about 60k miles went out.. A/c compressor blew.. Horrible experience. Got another compressor on eBay for $240 shipped. Paid a buddy $100 to put it in for me. At 107k miles now, no problems yet.

I bought an 04. The week before I bought it, someone took it for a test drive, and the A/C never kicked on. He had the compressor replaced, and it works just fine as far as I know. But I only tested it before I bought it, and its winter in Colorado.

But anyways, the car had 124k miles when the A/C went out.

Today was my first time having a problem with this. The A/C wasn't working for the first 15 minutes, and then slowly started getting a little bit colder.. still not normal. Is this what happened to you guys? I'm afraid to turn it on now. This car is becoming a headache, just changed the alternator last month!

My 07 a/c was starting to blow hot. The compressor still working, Just added Freon. At the moment the a/c is blowing cold air. Let's just see how long this will last.

Reppin from Irvine too lol. Totally out? Luckily I got a freon refill from Tustin Acura for $190 before it died.
I dont get any cold air, just lukewarm and hot. I was at Tustin Acura for recall work last Saturday, and the Service Advisor said that he could not hear the compressor turn on. They wanted +$200 just to diagnose the problem. He said it could be the compressor or the relay. He wanted $150 for the relay, I said no thanks.

Wow, that's horrible. They charged me $70ish to diagnose, which was then applied to the freon recharge. They also checked for any signs of leaks in my a/c system. I had the same problem though.. just lukewarm and hot air. Now it's blowing ice cold.
