Chances are you may have a low pressure relay that shut it off. Check the pressure and add more r34 if its low on coolant.

    I bypass the connector switch and got the relay clutch to spin and added more refrigerant and after it was good so I went and check the pressure of the refrigerant and now it's low to none left

    Leak somewhere

    I added ac pro and it work again I guess it's low on freon or the leak seal itself...lol

SOURCE: air conditioning clutch

I have the same problem with my Durango AC. I called the dealer and they do have clutch for my compressor available. I wonder how big of a job it can be. I got my A/C Charged thinking I am low on compressor gas only to find out after 135 dollars that it is my clutch that is not engaging. Cost of new compressor and labor factor added to it get to be a scary sum of money for 1998 model. Any one knows how to replace this clutch? Is it the front bold that is holding the entire clutch? Help amin

SOURCE: ac compressor clutch does not engage

to prevent damage to the air conditioning system there is a "low pressure switch" located on the condenser near the low pressure hose (large one) .. if the refrigerrant (R134A) gets too low then the clutch will be blocked from activating by that switch .. you can have your system tested and recharged or you can do that yourself .. the R134A is available at auto parts stores .. some come with a gague that is required for proper charge .. if you dont already have a gage then yoiu will need that one ... recharge kits often come with instructions .. other less likely but possible problems could be a fuse or bad AC clutch relay. sometimes damaged wiring or bad clutch will be the problem but much more likely just low fluid ..

no low freon doesn't have anything to do with the blower, but the click noise you hear is the clutch trying to enguage but not spin, if your blower is working then you don't need to replace the blower, but if blower works but no cold air and freon is at ok levels and the clutch isn't spinning which is in the middle of the ac blower pully then the clutch needs to be replaced, if you add too much freon to the system you can get it to start then stop spinning then spin again on and off untill is at ok levels. i know this because this happens to me every summer in the desert when I recharge my freon.

1991 Mercedes Benz AC Cycling Switch /Compressor Clutch Won't Engage Completly Spins 1/6 of a complete spin repetedly then stops


You need to have the refrigerant charge level checked, it sounds like it is low. You Need a set of AC pressure gauges to do this testing. If the system has a low charge the pressures will be very low in the low side testing port.

HY MY NAME IS DUANE AND I NEED HELP FIGUREING OUT WHY MY AC WORKS GREAT IT'S BLOWS ICE COLD AND SOMETIMES IT BLOWS HOT IT JUST STARTED A FEW DAYS AGO WHAT DO THINK IT MIGHT BE? THAKS YOU


it may be that the clutch on the A/C compressor is faulty & sometimes it doesn't engage or it could be a wire is loose or a loose connector plug, next time it blows hot air when it should be cold lift the hood & make sure that the clutch on the A/C is engaged ......hope this helps......cheers.

I have a 2007 chevy sliverado 1500. the ac is not working i have changed the fuse and the freon is good what else could be the problem?


This won't be a complete solution, but here's a place to start. Have the engine running, truck in park. Open the hood and stand to the side of the truck. Have someone help by sitting in the truck turning the AC on and off over and over. Your AC pump runs off your engine belt and has a clutch on it so that when you aren't using the AC, the pump doesn't turn. You should hear the AC Clutch engaging and disengaging as your helper cycles the system on and off. If you don't hear this, it's probably an electrical problem and the clutch isn't hearing the signal to engage. If you hear the clutch clicking on and off (usually a pretty discernible click) and if indeed the system is charged well with refrigerant, then I would suspect the clutch may be worn to the point that it won't engage. Either of these is a fairly expensive fix, and should probably be done by a mechanic. My truck has to be drained of refrigerant before the clutch can be changed, and if this is the case for you then that refrigerant should be captured and recycled rather than let go into the atmosphere. Also, if work needs to go this deep, filters should be cleaned and lubrication replaced as well... a mechanic will do a great job here. If it's electrical then the solution shouldn't be as involved, but nobody likes electrical work so the price is usually high anyway. :) Good luck!

I ust had the water pump replaced. Now my ac has gone out. I know nothing about cars but I do know that I hear a strange noise and the front part of the ac unit was turning and now it's not. It seems...


It is unlikely that the replacement of the water pump and AC failing are related, however ensure that the V belt is correctly positioned and under tension. The AC pulley should be spinning continuously by the V belt. The AC compressor is engaged by an electrically operated clutch within/behind the pulley wheel. If the pulley wheel is not spinning but the belt is sliding over it then you have a seized AC compressor and this will most probably need replacing. If the wheel is spinning but the AC compressor is not working (no cooling) then it is the clutch that is not engaging. This could be due to a worn clutch, failed clutch actuator, broken electrical connection, failed relay, broken fuse a failed interior thermostat (the car thinks that the 'set' temperature has been reached and so switches the AC off). To check, put the AC on the lowest setting and test the voltage at the AC compressor connection. If voltage is being supplied it is likely to be a failed AC clutch. There are lots of AC clutch repair videos on youtube and these should be a great help.

Ac was running when driving to the store, stopped to gas car then on the way out turned on ac no air coming out and the ac light does not turn on. i checked the fuses all are working but no power running...


Most likely the AC compressor clutch isn't engaged. This happens when the refrigerant pressure switch doesn't detect pressure in the coolant lines. The cause is usually a refrigerant leak.

This way the AC compressor is protected from running dry and possible damage.

Let your local repairshop check AC line pressure - if no pressure, look for the leak first then refill with fresh refrigerant.

Airconditioning system blowing hot


Find the AC compressor. The pulley on it has an electric clutch that allows the compressor to run when the AC is on and not when it is off. With the engine running you should be able to see if the clutch is turning or not. The pulley turns all the time the engine is running only the clutch behind the pulley starts and stops. Look at the pulley with the AC off. Have someone turn it on and see if the clutch engages to turn the compressor. If it doesn't engage there are a couple thing that could be wrong. First the clutch has burned out and no longer works. The fuse on the AC clutch is blown. Check the fuse. More likely, if the cold air has been getting warmer, the AC system has a refrigerant leak. The system has a low pressure switch that prevents the clutch from engaging when the refrigerant pressure is too low. If the fuse is good then you need to have a qualified AC Technician check the system.
