ID.4 Air Conditioning issue

My ID.4 has been serving me well for 15 months (today!) with no A/C issues and I leave my Clima in Auto so there are times it runs even in Winter to reduce cabin humidity (it’s good to run A/C in Winter periodically just to keep things lubricated btw).

I would also reference @edid4 recent travelogue where he cites excellent extended A/C output in very hot desert environment. So no, I wouldn’t say there’s a known issue.

However any mechanical system can develop a problem. It could very well be a leaking refrigerant hose. Don’t buy a DIY kit as those often add more refrigerant than they should as they don’t meter the low pressure side. Only a Pro shop has the gear to properly balance the system.

Or it could be an electrical issue keeping the compressor from engaging, etc. You could check for a blown fuse. But be reminded that replacing such is not really a solution as there was probably a valid systemic reason for a blown fuse in the first place.

Do take it to your dealership for in-warranty resolution.

Same just happened to our 1st Edition. Worked great for over a year and now no AC. Took it to dealership and they said I need a new temperature sensor and of course the part is not available and on back order. Could be weeks or months. Its too hot in Maryland to wait that long!

TECHNICIAN FOUND FAULT CODE P053000: AC TEMPERATURE SENSOR
CIRCUIT. INSPECTED SENSOR, POWER AND GROUND ARE GOOD, NO
OUTSIDE INFLUENCE FOUND. RECOMMEND REPLACEMENT OF AC
TEMPERATURE SENSOR

@mfoster did you get a resolution on your AC? I’m not confident in the solution my dealership offered/suggested. They seem to know NOTHING about ID4s. I am about to reach out to other dealerships.

But it is. Reports of broken AC with the liquids all leaked out are several a month. I may be wrong and I can’t verify because I can’t see «quality improvement campaigns» unless I own a car those apply to, but I think ID.3:s were so bad there was a campaing to replace some parts in conjuction with the 2 year check-up even if there was no issues.

ID.4:s don’t seem that affected, but I’ve seen several reports of that during the summer. And of course, wait times for repair are 2-4 weeks, great fun driving a hot car during the summer.

Just checked a group of two thousand ID.4/5 owners on facebook (so a relatively small sample). Three reports of AC not working in June/July alone. Reasons varied, one leaking coolant.

Of course there will be someone with a refrigerant leak issue as no vehicle model line is perfect (potential vendor hose or hardware lot issue, unique environmental issue, roadway damage, etc.). Refrigerant hoses are typically far more robust than ICE coolant hoses, but anything can happen.

This is the ID.4 section so ID.3 issues are not really applicable as not identical systems. And citing «I think ID.3’s were so bad . » doesn’t lend much.

«Several a month» but then you cite «I can’t verify.» Not exactly empirical evidence. Personally I have no use for FB discussions anyway.

There is almost never a thread survey entitled «have you had zero A/C issues?» If there were and there was good participation then likely very far outweighing any reported issues. I have had zero issues this very hot Summer. In fact just yesterday I raised my cabin temp setting to 74 degF as it was too cold at 72 degF!

My definition of «known issue» is one so widespread there is a recall or service bulletin/campaign, which there is not. To the contrary, we have many member roadtrip reports where their A/C worked flawlessly in very hot climates (such as the one I linked above).

So again, in rebuttal to your «but it is» comment on cherry picked June entry of mine, no, I wouldn’t say there’s a known issue.
