step 1 is check the clutch
on the front of the compressor.
is it engaged or not.
this is always step 1, (besides a/c lamp on on dash and must blow air,,blower on it must be on... and blowing. air.)
this 1 check (group) cuts the job in 1/2. every time;
do tell and we can do step 2.
is your blower motor running what amp fuse are you using check for a wire shorted at the compressor by the clutch this is the part mounted on the compressor that engages it the compressor could be bad causing the clutch to overload creating a short unplug the connection to the clutch and see if the fuse still blows this would confirm if its a wire or the compressor
Find the AC compressor. The pulley on it has an electric clutch that allows the compressor to run when the AC is on and not when it is off. With the engine running you should be able to see if the clutch is turning or not. The pulley turns all the time the engine is running only the clutch behind the pulley starts and stops. Look at the pulley with the AC off. Have someone turn it on and see if the clutch engages to turn the compressor. If it doesn't engage there are a couple thing that could be wrong. First the clutch has burned out and no longer works. The fuse on the AC clutch is blown. Check the fuse. More likely, if the cold air has been getting warmer, the AC system has a refrigerant leak. The system has a low pressure switch that prevents the clutch from engaging when the refrigerant pressure is too low. If the fuse is good then you need to have a qualified AC Technician check the system. Thanks for using FixYa. Gaker
The first place to check is the low pressure cutoff switch, on the a/c
acumulator at the right side firewall. With the engine off and the key on
turn on the a/c to low. Remove the plug from cutoff sw, use a jumper wire to make a connection of the terminals in the plug. If the comp clutch engages, the system needs to be charged(most common) or the
cutoff switch is bad. If the compressor clutch won't engage when jumped you can post again or give us a call and we'll dig deeper into the
system. But I hope this helps. Good luck.
there seem to be two different problems with you Explorer.
If all power windows are inoperable, there seems to be a blown fuse. You´ll find a fuse table and diagram within your owner´s manual.
If the fuse is O.K., there has to be a problem with the power windows control module, you have to see a mechanic to service that.
The cause of the inoperable air conditioning is probably a lack of coolant or a defecitve a/c compressor clutch, these are the most common failures on AC Systems. Unfortunately there are no user serviceable parts on an A/C system so this ist a job for the mechanic too.
hello first of all you need to see if this belt only drives the ac clutch if so yes you can cut this off the compressor sounds like it is frozen the other option is if there is other things ran with the same belt take a string go around everything but the ac when it meets mark the ending point holding with your finger cut at the mark tape string together like a belt go to part store get a match to the string
