SOURCE: 2003 ford explorer ac compressor does not come on.

It is probably either a bad compressor clutch or the system has lost its fluid and the low pressure switch is keeping it from coming on. If you track the AC lines on one of them you will see a sensor with a plug connected to it. Start the car turn the AC to max, blower also. Then unplug the connector on the pressure switch and jump the wires in the connector. Use a flat head screwdriver if the connector has exposed pins or a paperclip if the pins are inside little tubes. If you do this and the compressor kicks on then you have lost your refrigerant and have to bring it to be leak tested. If it doesn't come on then it is probably the AC compressor clutch.

Low pressure valve for 2008 ford explorer xlt


There should be two ports with black caps on the ac lines. One is bigger than the other to help prevent you from hooking up to the wrong side of the compressor.

I attempted to recharge the AC. I first pulled a vacuum to 30". Started to recharge, low side pressure approx 20#, high side pressure approaching 400 PSi and tripping on high head pressure. What's...


I would say a restriction somewhere.. Likely the expansion valve itself. It should be located in the tubing just before the evaporator. You will have to recover that freon you just put in, pulls the valve and check it.

Where, exactly, is the orifice tube located on my truck?


the orfice tube is locate in the line between condenser and evaporator. near the spring lock coupling. you must unbolt the cruise servo and overflow bottle, reposition them out of way and you will see the line connection..the orfice is inside line near that uniion. the ac system must be evacuated prior to removal, and recharged afterwards..

Locating low pressure valve on 96 explorer for ac recharge


The largest diameter line is the suction which is low. The small one that runs to a coil by radiator is high pressure. If there is no cooling then you may have air in the system which means a leak must be fixed first. Are you sure the compressor is engaging? You should hear it click and the engine bog down a little.
