No one wants to be stuck driving their car when the air conditioner goes out, especially in the middle of summer. Getting dressed for work and arriving their musty and drenched in sweat is not something to look forward to. Fortunately, there is a way to prevent this dreadful scenario from happening. All you have to do is check, or have a professional check, your air conditioning system. Most likely, the first place you'll start is the Scion a/c condenser. Located under the hood and near the radiator, the a/c condenser is a major part of your air conditioning system. It transforms warm, Freon gas into cold, liquid gas and runs it through to other parts of the air conditioning system where it can be turned into cold gas and sent through your ventilation system. When your a/c condenser isn't working right, the air coming from the vents will not cool down.
