SOURCE: AC Compressor clutch problem

Hi

This could be any number of things, low system pressure, chattering relay, faulty cycling switch, failed compressor, poor cooling, the list goes on.

I'm afraid this is a job for the professionals!

Very best regards

SOURCE: AC system, compressor not engaging.

Sounds like your a/c system is low on freon, system has a low pressure switch which disables a/c compr.so that it don't damage a/c compr, it would be kind of like running an engine with on oil it would damage an engine, what needs to be done is have dye injected in to a/c system to be able to fine the leak, once leak is found can be repaired and recharge with freon, system will work good after repair has been done.Good luck

SOURCE: Should the AC compressor clutch engage when the

yes. the ac removes moisture from the cabin of your car. if it is not engaging that is why your windows are fogging up. you need to have the ac pressure checked. you may just need a recharge.

A/c clutch wont engage. the compressor and clutch are good i jumped the pins on the pressure switch,didnt work. i checked the relay.i jumped the pins where the relay goes and got it to engage.


there are two pressure switches in an ac system
one switch prevents the compressor from running if there is too much gas
the second is to prevent the compressor from running if there is insufficient gas
from what you describe , one of those switches ( most likely no gas) is the switch
check for oil dust around the fittings , condenser or have an ac specialist check for leaks and regas

Help 2008 ford fusion heater and ac stopped working


1) TEST the fuse+ relar of a/c
see the next steps and fix it. God bless you
If so, the compressor is working and the A/C system probably contains enough refrigerant to make cold air, so the problem is inside the HVAC unit. Replace the motor that controls the blend air door (this is a difficult job and best left to a professional since it involves tearing apart the HVAC unit -- about an 8 to 10 hour job!).
If the compressor does not engage when you turn on the A/C, see if it will run by jumping the compressor clutch wire directly to the battery (use a fused jumper wire). If the compressor works when you jump it, and the A/C blows cold air, the system contains refrigerant and the fault is likely a bad A/C compressor clutch relay or a bad clutch cycling switch or pressure switch.
If the compressor does not engage when you jump it, the problem is a bad compressor clutch.
If the clutch engages but the compressor does not turn (the belt will start to slip and squeal), the compressor is locked up and you need a new compressor.
If the compressor clutch engages and turns the compressor, but the A/C still does not blow cold air, the system is probably low on refrigerant and needs to be recharged

Had the compressor replaced on 2003 Ford Taurus, A/C was recharged, but today it only blows out warm air.


have the AC tech performed a leak test on the system after recharging? is the expansion valve and filter drier as well as the o-rings for the fittings replaced? check also for possible leaks in the system in the fittings of the hose and in the evaporator housing. also check if the magnetic clutch of the AC compressor is engaged, you will hear a click when it it engaged.

My ac compressor on my dodge 2500 want engauge?


This could be a few things. The freon could be low, one of the switches (high or low pressure) could be bad, or you could have a bad compressor clutch. You can test the clutch by checking for battery voltage and ground at the two pin connector with the A/C on if you have both power and ground, then the clutch is bad. You really should start by hooking up pressure gauges to the A/C ports to check the pressures, and these vary depending on ambient temperature and whether the A/C compressor is engaged or not. I am willing to bet that the freon is low though and may be just as simple as recharging the system.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

I replaced an AC clutch. I tested it with lead wires, it engages. When I plug it in with the AC on it will not engage. I have 13 volts to the plug with AC on. what would keep the clutch from engaging if I...


Hi

Here to understand why it’s not engaging first check the electric system, fuses, circuit breaker, and connection to the clutch assembly. Chances are your refrigerant level is low and the low pressure cut out switch is preventing the clutch from engaging in order to protect the compressor. You can jump across the terminals at the overload fuse to check operation of the clutch but only for a short period of time in case your system is low on oil. Evacuate and recharge the system to resolve the issue.

Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.

Ok hear we go agian 2000 ford taurs 3.0 lit no a/c when i jump the compressor with a jumper wire. it works fine and i checked the high side swtich it works fine and the low side works ok to.


There are 3 likely problems:
  1. system could be air locked; when recharged, its possible more air than refrigerant was pumped into the system
  2. clogged or bad expansion valve
  3. AC clutch is bad; although it will engage when you jump it, the clutch could still be bad preventing it from engaging when you turn on the AC
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

AC compressor wouldn't kicking in; 2000 Ford Taurus


If your R 134 is low in your system then the AC compressor will not engage the clutch to run the compressor. Have your system check for charge level of the R134 first. If low they can add to system. All AC systems leak down over a period of time and need to be recharged. So, don't get worried that your system is bad. If the charge depletes itself again quickly then you have a leak somewhere in the system that needs to be addressed.

A/C Clutch not engaging on my Tuarus 1998


YOU CHECKED ALLOT BUT YOU DID NOT MENTION THE AC COMPRESSOR CYCLING SWITCH, DID YOU TEST IT? DOES THE COMPRESSOR RUN IF YOU JUMP IT, HAVE U CHECKED TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR TERMINAL HAS 12 VOLTS AND GROUND WHEN TURNED ON? THE CYCLING SWITCH AND THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE PROBLEM WHEN THE SYSTEM IS CHARGED BUT THE COMPRESSOR DOES NOT RUN.
