Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
New ac compressor was installed, dryer, pressure switch, relay, orifice tube and condensor. Everything was working for a short time after leaving the shop and then the ac just quit. Discovered the blown fuse under the hood,changed it and blew that one instantly.
Check the wire from the ac clutch back and look for a dead short to earth . look for pinched wire. Wire worn by drive belt etc. Any indication of where a live wire is touching earth.

There is a compressor relay "fuse" under the hood (in the fuse compartment). It is black and has a "diode" symbol on it. I replaced mine and all was well. Good luck.

Most likley needs to be recharged. Shouldnt be low, but if it has ever been in an accident it may have a leak or your mechanic stole the refridgerant when it was cold outside and you didnt notice untill you turned the ac on.

you have a short somewhere problably bad ground , or interferrance from alternaot overloading the circuit... check all ground securlely...if you cant locate it its not going to be cheap for a mech to locate the issue.. good luc kthough ( also check for loose wire behind the fuse box in car.

105 psi? If so that is way to hi...especially for a mid-sized car. You ideally want you pressure to be between 40-50 psi. If you pressure is that hi you might have blown the pressure valve on you compressor, which is not a part that is sold seperately. You should take your car to your local Pep Boys and have them run a A/C diagnostic which runs around $45 to give you an better idea. If you don't know what you're doinf the A/C system is not something you want to play a guessing game with. Especially since it's illegal to work on it without the proper tools and licenses.
