Wife told me about 10 days ago that the air wasn't working. Took it into the dealer a week ago and they diagnosed that the AC compressor wasn't actuating. Unfortunately we're passed the mileage limit on the 5 year/60k bumper to bumper. Fortunately I argued that the mileage shouldn't matter on a part like the AC compressor. Hyundai corporate partly agreed, they're covering 50% of the repair. Dealership has to order the part, it's supposed to be in today.
When I say it wasn't working, it wasn't getting cold. It was just blowing warmish air for the 30 minute ride to work the day I dropped it at the dealership. They checked the freon and it was fully charged.
I drive the car to work today and all of a sudden the AC is working.
I don't have to tools to change out the compressor myself, but I'm wondering if they're initial diagnosis is still possible. I'd rather not just throw parts at the issue.

I looked up your compressor and it appears to be another stupid design. Normally the electric clutch on the front has the 2 wires going to a plug, then into the harness, all out in the open. Easy to jump to see if clutch and compressor are working and easy to replace just the clutch if bad.
Your harness however appears to enter the back of the compressor which means the wires have to travel internally to the front of the compressor where the clutch is. This also means there may be other internal parts such as the pressure switch, maybe. This means that something as simple as a bad wire, switch or connector requires the replacement of the complete compressor.
Dumb, dumb, dumb.
I hope they at least tested it out properly to condemn the compressor since there are many more parts separate of the compressor that can cause it to not turn on.
The fact that it started working again clearly shows the main compressor is ok and it is probably a bad connection or component.
