Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I recharged my AC from a point of no coolant. The Compressor clutch would not engage so I by-passed the relay with a paper clip to get the coolant in. When I removed the paper clip and replaced it with the relay after adding the coolant the compressor clutch would not engage. I replaced he relay and it still doesn't engage. I disconnected the battery to see if a reset might help but it still doesn't engage. What can be wrong?

If you did not use a vacuum pump from a dry system them the system will not work.

SOURCE: AC does not work
check the psi level on the system, cause you may have a leak and the system dropped the pressure level, if the level is fine then replace the compressor, cause it it probably bad... hope this helps you...

you can jumper the low presser switch to in gage the clutch until you have enough freon in the a/c unit to keep the Freon low presser switch in gaged.hope this helps.

Ok.Try this.-------- Disconnected the wire plug on the top of the ac compressor, then turn on the ac and check that plug for voltage with meter.If it reads 12 volts then problem is AC clutch coil.But if its not reading 12 volt, then problem is the fuse.But in your case , you already inspected the fuse and relays.So mostly the problem is AC clutch coil.Its mounted on the top of the compressor itself.------Unplug the compressor field coil and hook a test light between the field coil power wire and ground and have the a/c button on. if there's power there, then you have a bad field coil. You can buy clutch coil for AC from your local chrysler dealer or from local auto parts store.------- This will help.thanks.Helpmech.
