Question about Toyota Corolla

AC Compressor Clutch fell off

I went a round a corner and heard a clunking noise from the front of the Sedona. Looked in my rear view mirror and saw something rolling along the side of the road. Went back and picked it up and took vehicle to dealer.
According to the KIA dealer...
Inspected and found bolt had let go allowing clutch to fall out.
Correction:Resecured AC compressor clutch. Tested Good.

It also happened that I had called roadside assistance twice in the last 3 days, prior to clutch falling off, because of a dead battery.

Is it possible that the AC clutch problem caused some sort of trickle charge on my battery?

2005 Sedona fully charged,compressor does not turn on


Normally you would check for voltage at the relay then the low pressure switch, then the compressor clutch.
With the system charged or the low pressure switch bypassed you should have 12 volts at the clutch and ground. You can also check the clutch with an ohms meter to see if the magnet is open.

Could this be my compressor going out?


The AC compressor shaft is riding on a electronic clutch pack.

When the pressure need to built up the clutch will LOCK and you will see the shaft start spinning.


Start the car and max out the ac. The clutch should lock up within 2 minutes.

Listen for a click sound from the clutch.


A badly damage clutch will lock up the belt!

You DO NOT want to be anywhere near the belt because it will snap.


An AC system should last 3--6 years.

NO using the ac compressor is a bad thing.


Let an AC guy to test the low side AC line pressure.


Good luck
