As of 2015, the cost to repair the air conditioner on a vehicle greatly varies according to what is being fixed and can range from $50 to $2,000, notes Autotrader. Some fixes require replacing small gaskets while others include installing completely new equipment.
If an air conditioning system has a leak, the air will eventually stop being cold. If the leak is found somewhere accessible easily, it can be quickly and inexpensively fixed.
However, larger issues, such as compressor failure, will require the overhaul of several of the air conditioning components. This procedure will also require the system to be refilled, which can dramatically increase the overall price.
