95 Isuzu Rodeo AC problem

My AC doesn't work correctly and I can't figure it out. It is nice and cold when the compressor is running the trouble is that the compressor will not stay on. Most of the time it won't come on at all. The light on the AC button stays iluminated when the button is pressed, the relay and fuse are both good. I am thinking this is an electrical problem because I had a shop evacuate and recharge the system and I still have the same problem. Their best guess was that the radiator was clogged and the pressure would build up too high and shut off the compressor but I don't think that fits the symptoms. Especially since now it won't come on at all.

3 things I am thinking. Either 1 the AC button is not working or 2 the thermostat that turns on and off the compressos is not working or 3 the leaking valve covers have leaked so much oil into the compressor electronics that they are shorting out.

Any guesses? Thanks for your help.

    I have the same problem with my 97 rodeo. The compressor comes on and cools for a few minutes and then goes off. If I turn off the ac button for a few minutes and turn it back on and the ac runs fine for a few more minutes. I checked the charge and it's fine.

I will jump it at the relay tomorrow. I may have mis spoke on the radiator. I meant the part in front of the radiator. Where the high temperature high pressure R134a goes to be cooled. Is that the evaporator or condenser? Either way, their theroy was that some contaminates are restricting the flow in there but their gauges wern't showing it

AC compressor clicks on and off while running?

the compressor will cycle on/off when the cabin temperature is reached
the larger pipe will be cold to touch as it is the suction line for the compressor
if you have a problem with the ac ,it will not work the compressor at all and the lines will not get cold
When in doubt take it to an accredited ac specialist shop and have the system check out.

Did you check the relay to see if it is getting power and ground ?
Is the high pressure switch working correctly ?
The low pressure switch opens when the pressure drops below 20psi, and the high switch opens when the pressure is above 300psi.

Airconditioning system blowing hot

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.

It is strange that the compressor engages when the button is on, but the light does not work.

My ac was blowing fine and cold until my ac compressor went out. i bought a used ac compressor wit new dryer/accumulater, and orfice tube. i had that for awhile and i replaced it again because the air...

If the car was retro fitted with R134a this was a common problem. There was a low side pressure sensor that needs to be changed. R134a runs different pressures than the r12.. When you go down the road the condenser cools off the system and the pressure drops below the minimum pressure. You need to make sure that the system is fully charged, not just cold to the feel. Both pipes coming out of the firewall need to be the same temp. this makes sure that the evaporator is flooded.
I hope this helped. Re-post if you need more info. Have a nice day and good luck.

If the freon is at the correct level and your AC compressor is teh most likely candidate. Have the AC compressor checked.

My AC went out suddenly and it turns out I got a major leak in one of the tubes in the AC system and thus warm air. When I bought the first can of refrigerant it didn't take much to get the pressure back where it should be. After some good advise I learned that my compressor was kicking on and off (you'll hear it cycle on and of every few seconds or so) and not STAYING on. Turns out because the system was drained of coolant I had to fill the tank a little at a time and actually go over the recommended pressure to force the air out of the line and get enough coolant in the system to kick the compressor on.
Turns out it was all for not...given the hole in my system it just leaked right out. I live in GA and still don't have it fixed; I was quoted $800 to fix it and figured I could live with it.
