Introduction Some 2002 – 2003 model year Camry owners may experience a condition where the
blower volume gradually decreases after about 1-1/2 hours of driving. It has been
determined that, in hot high humidity conditions, the A/C system evaporator is freezing
over, blocking the airflow path. There may be some instances where this condition may
affect the A/C compressor and clutch assembly. An in–line thermistor resistor harness is
now available to correct this concern.
