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

Ac not working not a fuse or relay ?


The accumulator or dryer looks like a long cylinder, it has a pressure switch on it and two wires attached to it. pull the wired molex off, with the ac set on max cooling, jump out the two wires with a wire or paperclip, if the clutch on the ac compressor engages, check the cab to see if its cooling, if it does cool the switch needs to be replaced, if it does not cool, you may need freon, and there could be a sign of a leak in your system, that can be best checked with ac manifold guages. the low pressure switch is there for safety if the canistor or accumulator is low or has no freon the switch opens up and keeps the clutch from running so that the compressor will not burn up. good luck!

Just had ac charged on 1995 Chevy Suburban after replacing, nearly, the entire ac system last autumn. Told there were no leaks (vaccum check). However, got the truck home and it still blows warm air and...


you can run the compressor for a few minutes to see if you get cold air with the low pressure switch crossed out. if you don't have cold air after about 5 minutes then you still have a leak somewhere.

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!

Jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA


the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

When you jump the switch all you are doing is forcing the compressor to kick in and work. It could be low on freon which will also keep it from kicking on which in that case you need to have it charged so does not mean your "sensor" (switch) is bad or that your compressor is bad.

How do i jump ac compressor to see if if it


There's a low pressure switch on one of the aluminum tubings leading from the compressor. You can pop off the connector and jump it with a paper clip. Don't let it run long at all for you can cause damage to the compressor. Pick up a charge kit at Autozone for about $40 bucks. All instructions are there, it's quite simple nowadays.

Ac new and ran for 4 months then stoped.


Try checking the spacing of the clutch of the compressor to your A/C...chances are the gap is too large and will not pull down to engage the compressor. That should eliminate the jump wire and keep your car snowing. No clutch to engage the compressor, no A/C.
