Air conditioner compressor failure

2010 Sonata with 32,000 miles. AC suddenly stopped working on the way home from a trip. It was diagnosed that the compressor needs replacing (new Hyundai part over $1000. + labor & tax; new after-market around $650. + labor & tax). Dealer denies any coverage since it's over 36 months. Seems pretty premature; is this a known problem with this year/model? Or is it pretty much all on me at this point?

thanks

Is the system gassed up ?

Does the clutch engage ?? Wont engage with no gas in system....

Compressor is not a real fail item in most respect across the product line here.. random field coil open - short circuit wont allow coil to energize and couple the compressor shaft to pulley via clutch plate..

<--- Please fill in the 'location' and 'what you drive(year & chassis) and engine size' boxes on your personal profile page.

Diagnosis states:
Refrigerant charge full
Test HVAC system controls
Circuits all good to A/C compressor
A/C compressor clutch failure
Needs A/C compressor assembly replaced

Clarify clutch failure ....

Field coil open circuit or short circuit ?? Replace field coil.. parts is cataloged in MICROCAT.. as long as compressor not locked up..



EDIT your DRIVES 2010 Sonata to reflect 2.4L or 3.3L there below your username... 2010 came with 2 engine choice

I'd press them for the reason they want to do the compressor. The clutch/hub,pulley, and coil are all replaceable. Their own wording states clutch issue, yet circuits are good? Hmm. Sounds more like a coil to me, but who knows what they came up with.

Did the edit - 2.4L

The garage has a good reputation but honestly I don't know anything besides what it says on the garage receipt and what they're telling me.

Thanks for your reply. The garage has a good reputation but honestly I don't know anything besides what it says on the garage receipt and what they're telling me. Can't imagine going garage to garage at $100. per diagnosis hoping to hear something different.

36 months? Should be part of the 5/60 coverage. Isn't it?

Yes, you may be right about that. I am at about 64 months right now but I'll check with the dealership to see if they'll work with me considering the low mileage.
