After pulling a vacuum, you will have low pressure in the system and the low pressure switch will keep the compressor from kicking on. If you pulled a vacuum, just hook your hose up, and after you open the valve, turn the can upside down so it will take as a liquid, not a gas. The compressor will kick on after a few seconds. This is how I did mine, and I now have COLD air.

I use the freon with the guage built in to the can. It uses the Acme fitting the just snaps on to the port on the A/C line and you push a button for the freon discharge. Just make sure you open up the valves all the way on the inlet pipe to the compressor. If you are using the can in which you screw it on to the hose and tighten the valve to pierce the can with a needle, you have to make sure you back the needle out from the can for the freon to flow. I turned the A/C on high and turned the can upside down and shook it. I switched to R134A and it works every time I need to top up on freon. FYI, the clutch will not kick on until you have enough pressure from the freon. Keep adding until your guage reads good, it's easy if you have the one built in to the freon can.

Ok ... i presume you have pressure tested it and there were no leaks in the system.
aside from a fuse there should be a relay for it as well. likely located in a fuse panel near the battery in the engine compartment.

AC clutch will not engage and at same time electric windows will not work. Cannot find fuse that operates windows. Any suggestions?

Several switches control if the compressor kicks on, usually it's low freon that keeps it from turning on, and I've seen many evap core problems with the grand Cherokee and that's located inside the vehicle behind the dash, And the windows are on separate circuit, non related most likely, try wiggling the wiring in the driver side door jam while working the window switch, seen many of those wires break from the door movement over time..pull back the rubber grommet to inspect if any are broke or cracked..

AC compressor won't engage clutch

Lots of things can cause this, I will list them, easiest first.

A blown fuse or relay can prevent the clutch from kicking in. Low refridgerant charge will also do this, the low pressure switch will prevent the clutch from engaging when there is low refrigerant to prevent damage. You may need to put more in, and you also may need to jump the low pressure switch to get the compressor going to add more in. Very rarely the controls could have gone bad, which are the buttons on the dash. Id check out the fuses, relays, and pressure in the system first. A shop may even do a free diagnosis for you.

My husbands 93 park ave ac compressor is not running, when he relplaced the ac relay it worked one time and then no longer works. There doesn't seem to be any power getting to the compressor, could there...

If it has the auto air functions.On the passenger side under glovebox remove the black cover under the dash and there is a hidden fuse block with a ac fuse. Check for this a very common issue. Also if the ac is fully charged you can unplug the low pressure switch located on the accumulator( silver canister located by the relays towards the firewall) and take a wire and place between the two terminals just make sure the compressor will does come on.If the ac is turned on and you jump that switch and the compressor does turn and ac starts working then a good possibilty that the low pressure may be bad. Would check the fuse first.

Ac new and ran for 4 months then stoped.

Try checking the spacing of the clutch of the compressor to your A/C...chances are the gap is too large and will not pull down to engage the compressor. That should eliminate the jump wire and keep your car snowing. No clutch to engage the compressor, no A/C.
