I have a 2002 Pontiac Aztek and there's a ticking noise in the motor and the oil is good and all the other fluids are good. My A/C stop working and the back hatch doesn't unlock sometimes and to fix the problem I have to disconnect the battery for about 15mins or longer for it to work, can you tell me what could be the problem and how to fix it.

The air conditioner condenser had to replaced after it corroded and began to leak coolant at 47K miles. Mechanic indicated that this was the second repair this week completed on this GM engine type. He has done dozens of similar repairs.

The right air conditioner condensor, near the bottom, is cracked along the bottom. Took to the dealer and he has seen other ones similar on the aztec and the montero.
