2022 Kia Seltos 2WD 1.6 L
I’m having issues with the AC not working on my 2022 Kia Seltos. I went on a 5 hour road trip last week, and about 2 hours into the the trip the AC stopped blowing cold air. We had stopped at a park for about an hour to take a break. The AC was working fine before I turned the car off. When I started it back up it just blew out hot air. The temperature outside was in the 90s and the car has less than 5,000 miles on it. Took it to a Kia dealership the other day, and they spent over 2 hours trying to figure out the problem. They said that there is a leak somewhere in the system, but even using a UV light they couldn’t find one. (I even tried looking for it with a black light in my dark garage that night.) They said that they were going to contact Kia for any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this issue. Apparently the refrigerant is expensive and Kia only allows a certain amount for diagnostics. Is there some other place to look for that leak which may not be so obvious?
