There is a sensor, typically in the dash, that engages and disengages the clutch on the compressor. If this sensor goes out several things could happen, compressor never shuts off or it never turns on, or as happened when I had problems it kept shutting off the compressor and the car would not cool off. This has to be repaired by a shop. Or you do like my brother did and put a toggle switch on it and turn it on and off as you want.

Why my camry V6 2008 A/C Compressor Clutch Won't Engage?


There are a number of cut out switches on the AC system that will prevent the clutch from engaging.The most common reason for this is the low side pressure switch.This switch will not allow the AC to function if the R-134a or R-22 is too low or has leaked out completely.This prevents the AC from turning on and burning out.My suggestion is to take your car into a garage that has the equipment to do a diagnostic on your AC system and go from there.There are kits available to the car owner for around 50 dollars that include gas but I find half the time the money is better put toward someone that knows what they are doing. good luck

Idling goes up and down


If the air conditioning is on, then the engines idle will increase when the air conditioning compressor cuts in, and slow down again when the a/c compressor cuts out again.
If your model has a heat switch, if this is on, then the engine will idle faster, until the engine temperature reaches about 50 deg C, then as the glow rail switches off, the idle also drops back to normal.

My a/c compressor in my 1998 mitsubishi eclipse in seizing up and sticking causing my engine to lose power and cut off in drive and idle


I would suggest that you have the A/C pump replaced. In the mean time you can remove the A/C belt, even if it's the entire serpentine belt and replace it with a shorter one to eliminate the A/C Compressor. If you go to your local parts store and ask for a belt for that model car they will ask if it has air conditioning or not, tell them that it does but you want the belt for the non air conditioned model and a mounting diagram. This will leave you with no air but in a short while the compressor is going to burn that belt off anyway.

Air condition doesnt work


If the A/C is not working, meaning it blows warm air, it is either very low on Freon or has none at all. This could be the result of a bad compressor, bad connection, or bad line. The only way to know what problem you have is to do a UV leak test. If the leak is in a rubber hose, o-ring, or seal you can use a leak repair kit which will seal most leaks for about a year. If the compressor is bad you'll need to replace it.

Compressor doesnt run.


There is a pressure switch on the accumulator. The compressor cyles according to the low pressure reading at the accumulatror. If there is low refridgerent pressure the switch stays "OFF" and wont turn ther compressor on. Whan a system is low, there will be rapid cycling of the compressor, (on and off every few seconds). When the system is charged with the correct amount, the pressure is related to the temperature of the refridgerent. The compressors are common to leak. So it it doesnt leak, or make knocking noises, the compreesor MAY be good, but a pressure gauge will tell you if the compressor is good or bad. If you keep having to charge it, thats bad, and there is a leak. You will need to find and repair the leak, replace the drier (accumulator) , and recharge the system.

Air condition blows hot air but it has freon


You may have created an over charged condition and at this point the a/c compressor will cut off on high head pressures. This can be verified by installing gauges to the systems high and low side service taps and reading the pressures.An overcharged system will start the compressor briefly but soon cuts off once pressure goes to 350 - 400 lbs on the high side. Acceptable pressures for this system should be no greater than 250 high and low suction should drop to 40-50 psi.You might recover the charge and evacuate the system,then try bringing the charge back to proper level.A sight glass in the reciever drier really helps determining proper fill.Once all bubbles have dissipated from the sight glass during charging ,one should stop at that point to avoid overfilling.Too much freon is worse than a low charge especially in hot ambient conditions....

A\c compressor , defrost


That is actually the design of Honda defrosters. The air conditioning system by design dries out the air in the car. To increase the efficiency of the defroster Hondas automatically turn on the air conditioning. This dries out the air and de-fogs the windows.
