You dont need to do that,you can charge the system and when it reaches enough pressure it will start to cycle,usually what happens when you jump it is that when you fire it up the system is low and possibly not lubercated properly untill you reach the proper fill amount.many ways to do the same job but Ive done a/c for a longgggg time,hope it helps have a good day DB

A/c compressor won't engage 2005 equinox


most likely the ac compressor will not engage because it needs a freon charge.The simple way to tell if that is why without having special equipment is to find the pressure switch located on the low pressure line and jump the switch with a peice of wire. if the clutch engages when you jump the switch then you need to charge the ac with 134 a freon

A/c compresor not engaging


Yes, freon must be present in the system in order to circulate the oil that lubricates your compressor. A low pressure switch is used to stop the compressor from running if the freon level/pressure is low. This is to keep your compressor from destroying itself due to lack of lubrication.

There are also several other reasons that an A/C compressor will not engage. Proper diagnosis is required.

How to charge ac sytem.. where is the reclaimer located ... low side chrge port ?


The low side port should have a blue cap covering the valve. Even if you tried to connect a low port hose to the high port, it will not fit because it is a different design. it should be located between the compressor and the evaporator.

How does a person short out the low presure switch on a 1995 cadillac a/c? i would really appreciate any help on this.


The low pressure switch is located on the accumulator, and you only need to remove the connector to the low pressure switch and jumper the wire connector to by-pass the low pressure switch, however I would not recommend doing so because it is there to keep the AC compressor from being damaged due to running it low on R-134a.

If you are trying to charge the AC system you do not need to by-pass the low pressure switch, just start the vehicle and turn the AC on to maximum, then charge the AC system and when there is enough pressure in the system the compressor will come on, and then just continue to fully charge the AC system.

Which pins are shorted on AC pressure switch to get the AC compressor to cycle to fill unit with freon?


You should not have to do anything to charge that AC system, except to start the engine and turn on the AC to maximum, then charge the AC system, when there is enough pressure in the system the low pressure switch will trip the AC compressor on and you can continue to fully charge the AC system.

Locate low side valve for adding freon


the low preasure valve is located on the line coming off the ac compressor, if you look down from the front at the compressor and follow the top line out about 4 inches you will see it, good luck.

The car has been sitting for almost a year. I started it today to drive out of necessity. The A/C clutch does not engage. How do i jumper across the pressure switch to add freon? Thanks, Ken


dont!!! an you start to add freon, itll start to cycle the compresor clutch until within safe operating pressure and then it will hold clutch in constant. charge liquid(with can upside down). if wont take freon in this manner than your more than low on charge. running low on charge will quickly destroy pump, especiallt those old harrisons. the refrigerant also cools the compressor. good luck and wear gloves-

Adding freon to the auto air conditioner, the


On that model,it will cycle on and off while you add freon.If it does not ,then the ac system might have a problem.The low side pressure switch is located on,or near the accumulator .Unplug the switch and take the wire end plug and connect the two plug in`s together(cross it out on the wire).This will make the ac compressor engage and you can charge the system,do not leave the wire connected,plug it back up to switch.If the ac compressor does not come on ,then have the system checked out.

94 Saab 90 SE AC blows hot air


Hi Bill
Usually the clutch is frozen means you need Freon R-12, please go to the small glass window on the condenser to find out there is some white bubbling inside, if you have white bubbling means your AC lack Freon, but if you lost all Freon, the window is clear, so you have to check, I hope from there, you can tell the Freon level.
