A/C Compressor 1999 Suburban

I was told the a/c compressor was bad. (cracked housing?) Then I was told it would be $1000.00 to replace because you need all this other stuff in order to have a warranty on the compressor. What does changing the compressor entail and what other parts would I need?

1999 chevy suburban. the ac compressor doesn't engage. could it be a relay or is the compressor bad?

it is possible for either to be faulty, but it far more likely to need regassing.
there is a pressure switch in the freon system that will prevent the A/C clutch engaging if the pressure is too low.

i would get the refrigerant checked and topped up before starting to worry about anything else.

The cab of my 2000 chevy suburban 2500 fogs up. I did recharge the ac and the ac compressor doesn't want to kick in. I've been told it could be a heater core but thats very rare. Is there a switch or...

You have a leak in the heater core. It will have to be replaced. It's not all that rare these days, with the poor quality factory heater cores. The replacement cores are much better.

When changing A/C compressor on 99' chevy suburban 1500 what all needs to be changed or done besides the flush, vacuum and freon.

there is either an orifice tube or a expansion valve. both do the same job. however, the orifice tube should be replaced. it will filter small particles from the system and gets clogged. i would also replace the accumulater or receiver/dryer and condensor. if your compressor went bad chances are there is a lot of debris in the system. flushing doesn't always remove the debris. there is much more info on the internet regarding this subject. as well as videos on you tube

AC compressor will not turn on, and will not blow

open fuse panel under hood and check the AC Comp fuse. If it blows again you may need a new compressor

A/c fan blows, but compressor does not come on. Freon not low. All fuses ok. No voltage

theres a switch on the drier called low pressure switch it usually goes bad and doesnt allow power to go to compressor to test it unplg it and jumper the two wires togather. if it works theres your problem

AC panel messed up compressor doesn't come on.

check the fuse first then check the wiring inside then that is OK then check the wire on the compressor it self, its a connector might have to pull  it off and then on. pulling off the compressor is a big deal its lines are a sealed system, the refrigerant lines are under pressure
