Possibly Low pressure switch. You can check by removing the plug that goes to it and using a jumper wire to conect the two post inside the plug that you took off. if it stays on thats your problem. If not you have more serious issues that will require a visit to the shop.

96 GMC Sierra C1500 Updated a/c replaced compressor, suction/discharge hose, condenser, accumulator, low & high pressure switch cycle switch, flushed evaporator. vacuum 29 inches. R134A will not load.

not mentioned but did you replace with equipment specific for r134a gas
are you connected to the suction line and are sucking gas not liquid
are you using the duel gauge ,3 hosed manifold for the charging process or have you just connected the bottle and hoping for the best
take it to a qualified ac specialist shop

Replaced all A/C major components (compressor, filter-drier accumulator, and orifice tube) except condenser due to a seized compressor and failed clutch bearing. Flushed system and appeared to have no...

It sounds like you've done just about everything except to check if there is a bad or intermittent wire causing this or perhaps your low-pressure safety cutout switch is possible going bad causing the compressor to kick on and off?

2006 Ford Fusion Air Conditioning compressure not turning on.

Thats pretty high if the system is not running. Average pressure on the low and high side should be near outside air temp.
Normal low side is 30-40 psi and high side is 200-250 psi when the system is running and the freon charge is full.

AC compressor cycling on and off every 4-5 seconds, RPM has dropped. Low pressure side has not increased much after about 12oz of R134a has been added. Low side reading is currently about 36 lbs.

still need more freon-will short cycle when ur driving or bring up the revs because the low side will drop- average would be at or about 55 when running higher than idle

My A/C blows hot air when stopped at a stop sign, idling, or sitting parked. Otherwise it seems to cool just fine. What could be the cause? Thanks.

check that the charge of r134a is sufficient in the system. When idling, the pressure should be 25psi to 45psi on the low side as measured by a pressure gauge usually on a hose connected to the low side with a can of freon.

Equinox 2005, Air Conditioner blows hot air when car is idling then resumes cold air when car is moving. What could be causing this issue?

Most likely it needs to have the freon recharged. This is very common with R134A systems. You can do this yourself or have a shop do. Doing it yourself requires that you locate the Low pressure line, don't worry, the recharge can adapters will only fit the low pressure side, and to follow the directions on the can and watch the attached gauge. Over charging your AC is very bad and can cause very expensive damage. All the instructions you will need for using the recharge can will be printed on the can. Follow them. If you choose to do the job yourself you can get the recharge can with Hose and Gauge from Walmart, Auto Zone or just about any places you can get Oil, plugs and Oil Filters at.

Is the compressor cycling? If it is the refrigerant charge is most likely low. You will have to hook up a set of gauges and see what your pressure readings are with the A/C on and add the appropriate amount of R134a.
