  3. A/C not blowing cold until 10-20 min in

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My A/C is not blowing cold air until about 10-15 min into my drive most times. I can hear the compressor come on and then blows cold air. I replaced the compressor less than 1 year ago. Im thinking maybe its a relay or electrical problem and not the compressor. Once the compressor comes on it...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I checked the refrigerant, but it's ok. I start the car and after running and blowing cold air for a while, the cold air stops. Air still flows, but it's not cold. Then after another 15-20 minutes, it's starts blowing cold air again. Any leads will be greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance
