Have you checked the a/c compressor relay? Should be a relay for the a/c compressor in the fuse block. Hope this helps

What is wrong with my a/c on my 2001 chevy blazer

That would be an indication that the system is low on refrigerant. Jumpering the low pressure connector is a GREAT way to destroy the compressor. Compressor oil is circulated with refrigerant. When low on refrigerant and jumpering, you're running the compressor without oil

1993 Eldorado Cadillac ac compressor won't take freon. Display says compressor off, low refrigerant. How to bypass computer? Can compressor relay be jumped using paper clip? Which holes? to

Grab some refrigerant gauges and take readings. If the low side has more than 40 psi or so of pressure, the low limit switch will close and allow the compressor to run. If there is indeed low pressure causing the compressor not to run, you will need to flush the system after eliminating the source of the leak. If the a/c compressor has never been changed, it is probably the source of the leak.

Either connection is bad to low pressure sensor or pressure sensor is faulty.

Ac vent blower

proceed according 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

What energizes ac relay on 2005 freestar

The low side pressure switch in the AC low pressure line signals the PCM (computer control) to close the AC compressor relay and raise the idle speed. If the system is low on refrigerant charge the relay will not allow the system to engage the compressor, this is because the oil that lubricates all the works is suspended in the AC refrigerant, if that is low then the system gets no lubrication and will quickly seize up..

To add 134a, which of three wires on the pressure switch should I jump to get the compressor to run to add freon?

you don't need to jump the wires. even if the compressor clutch is not turning add the refrigerant to the low side port, it will go in through its own pressure when a safe level for the compressor to run has been reached the clutch will engage. at first the clutch will spin a second or two and stop and then begin again, from there continue adding refrigerant the clutch should spin continuously. if the clutch fails to ever engage the compressor is bad or there is a wiring problem.

Hi my a/c has stopped cooling, the a/c will blow hot air though. i looked under the hood and noticed the compressor was not turning. i checked to see if there was power getting to the compressor and...

If all your fuses are good and you could not jump the clutch to work. I would check to see if you A/C system is fully charged. If you are too low on refrigerant there is a low pressure switch that will stop the system from engageing the clutch on your compressor to stop the compressor from being run low on oil and refrigerant which could cause damage to it and the A/C system.

Just replaced the air conditioner compressor last fall worked great for a couple months before winter came. not i need to use it again, the blower works but the compressor doesn't kick in

must check the ac relay and fuses before jumping to the climate control, due to lack of information don't just take it to any body, recommend specialist on AC only

Air conditioning compressor not getting power on 96 Chevy Tahoe

Freon is what you are missing, our more specificly a refigerant charge that exceeds 45psi on the low side pressure line. This system has two pressure switches, a high side cut-out switch mounted on the rear of the compressor, and a low side or pressure cycling switch on the suction line.
Jump the low side switch contacts to ensure the electronics are sound for this system. If the compressor cycles, you know the system is low on a refrigerant charge. Turning on the AC is a request, and certain criteria must be met before the system operates as designed. Good luck
