Toyota has issued a service bulletin that corrects this problem, under the hood near the battery locate the fuse/relay block and remove the cover, look inside the cover to identify the "A/C magnetic clutch relay" remove it and check the part number imprinted on it, the defective relay will have the part number 90987-02022, the relay should be replaced with the part number 90987-02028.

thanks! it worked great. easy to do it yourself, although it was tough pulling the old part out, had to use a screwdriver for leverage.

went to the local toyota parts dept. and they pulled up 90987-02028 by default.

plugged it in and it worked perfectly!

Oh details:

2002 Camry 4-cylinder

Japan-manufactured.

Symptoms: blinking ac light where it was intermittent at first, but then was constant and the ac stopped working completely.

Better to try this $72 part than a full-on a/c repair which would have cost hundreds.

I had the same problem and it is the relay If you can't get a new one tap on thr old one the contacts are stuck and it should work until a new one comes in.

Thank you all for the advise--we pulled out the relay and put it back....the a/c worked....went to Toyota parts and bought the new one for about $85.

What a huge savings...I am sure if I brought the car orinally to a mechanic....he would have invented a whole expensive problem with the a/c.

THANKS!!!!!!!

I have a 2003 Sienna that has the A/C light blinking, we will change out the part. The other thing I have is a loud screeching noise when the compressor comes on. I need my air so really important that I get it fixed now!!! What could this be????

Thank you Thank you Thank you!

I found this forum searching the blinking A/C light for my friend's 2002 Camry. Swapped the clutch and horn relays and the A/C is working like new. After swapping them the horn decided not to work anymore so I pulled the newly swapped horn relay, smacked it on the ground a few times and reinserted and the horn works too :)

Thanks again for the help

Had the same problem with 2003 Camry. A/C light flashing and no cold air.

The Mag clutch relay was not working. Took it and threw it against plywood few times. Worked fine again! Saved some 60 bucks!

i had the same problem with the ac light blinking. After reading a couple of forums like this one, i decided to go with the most popular suggested solution.

I took out the 90987-02022 relay and replaced it with the 90987-02028. I bought it from O'rielly's and it cost $45. It was real easy to change and the ac works perfectly

thanks for saving me a couple of bucks

My a/c light is blinking, checke the pressure on the low side and it was high. (no psi value my gauge showed it in the red) So I unplugged the clutch connector on my compressor and applied 12v. Clutch engaged but almost stalled the car out. Is this a bad compressor or relay.

Problem was the mag/cl relay

I have a 2004 Camry. Same problem as above; Blinking AC light and hot air from the system. My wife just brought the car o the dealer. It works now after replacing the relay.

The only problem is that they installed the old P/N relay (90987-02022). Well, at least it's working again.

The cost for the relay was 2,500 pesos ($53)

At least you have an honest dealer, Ron. He could have banged you for a new compressor and you would never have known.

I have this issue as well, but I get a loud screecing noise coming from my fan belt. It happens when I turn on the defroster or ac. My relay part number is 90987-02822 so I don't know if that is my problem. Can anyone help? I'm way to broke to take it to the dealership. Thanks.
