    The A/C light blinks and the vents spit out warm air on our Toyota FJ Cruiser. It's a 2012 if that helps.

    Anybody else run into this with their Yotas?

    You would be better off googling the problem, it could be low on refrigerant or a electrical problem. I don't work on Toyotas much.

    I would run the code on a OBD2 scanner then head over the IH8MUD forum with the code. Tons of information posted there with some real experts willing to help. It could be something as simple as a fuse.

    Possibly one of the blend doors aren't opening properly to let the cold air in.

    My research pointed to the delay which is pretty common for most toyotas.

    I think every vehicle should have cradle to grave factory warranty. Might teach them to build things better.

    I work in manufacturing and I completely agree. Build **** right the first time, every time.

    That said our yota had been 100% reliable up til last weekend when the a/c crapped out. That's not even a big item.

    My FJ is an 07. I got it 11/13. Even though i am an American, Union, Chevrolet, park it behind my Corvette kinda guy, that FJ "Tokyo Express FJ Bruiser" has been the very best vehicle i ever owned. I regret not buying it new in 07!
