A/C compressor won't turn on

When I tried to turn on the air conditioner in my 2006 Chrysler Minivan, the A/C compressor won't come on. The 15 amp air conditioner fuse is good. Could the problem be a faulty A/C relay module?

    thanks for the help. I'll try replacing the A/C relay module first since I know where that is located. Can you tell me where the Low Pressure switch is located?

  • basil4333 Apr 22, 2009

    Well, I have now replaced the fuse and the A/C Relay Module but still have same problem, compressor clutch won't activate. I'll try inspecting the Low Pressure Switch. After that, I guess I'll just have to "bite the bullet" and take it to a repair shop. Thanks for your help.

    I hate to continue being such a dummy. I found the low pressure swich just where you said. The only problem is it has 3 wires feeding into it instead of two. A red wire - a dark blue wire - and a light blue wire. I don't know which wires to jumper together to perform the test that you described. I'm afraid that if I jumper the wrong wires, I may create an electrical problem. Can I unscrew and remove the switch without losing the refrigerant, assuming there is refrigerant in the system? If the switch can be safely removed, I'll buy a new one (probably not too expensive) & see if that is the problem

    Well, I ended up taking the van to an independent . Spent $90 for diagnosis. Said evaporator located behind right rear fender leaking.

    Wants $765 for repair. I told them I would let them know whether I

    wanted to bring it back for repair. I'm a senior citizen and have to see whether I can afford. Have you ever replaced an evaporator? I don't know whether I should attempt it. But, anyway I wanted to thank you for your help and advice. Take care.

    Hello friend. Well, I'm back in power. Found out that my a/c evaporator problem was extremely widespread. So I went to the dealer even though my van is about 15000 miles past warranty. Chrysler Company agreed to pay the lion share of the repair cost, leaving me to pay $200. Thanks again. I hope other 2006 Chrysler Minivan owners with same problem will read this and take heed. Even though Chrysler has filed for bankruptcy, they stepped up to the plate in this case.

Yes it could....could also be a bad low pressure switch or you may have a freon leak and lost all of the refrigerant

    the low pressure switch will be under the hood...usually on one of the lines next to the accumulator

    Chris Kieninger Apr 22, 2009

    now if you find the switch you can pull the plug off of it...it should be just 2 wires....with the A/c turned on you can jumper the 2 wires in the plug together.....see if the compressor clutch engages and starts blowing cold air....if it does... its a bad switch...if it does not you may have a bad clutch.....if it comes on and blows hot air, you have lost your refrigerant charge

    usually there is a schrader valve under the switch so it will only lose a little pressure if you remove it...not always but usually...if you are going do do that be VERY CAREFUL...wear goggle , gloves ect...the freon can really burn you (frostbite) and it hurts....(from experience)...you arent a dummy....so dont worry about asking questions

  • Chris Kieninger
    Chris Kieninger May 02, 2009

    yeah the loss of refrigerant was the cause.....evaparators are not an easy job

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Air Conditioner


Someone will need to find out if the compressor clutch is failing, or if it is loosing power due to a pressure switch or other problem.
A faulty relay or switch could get hot and switch off power to the compressor.

The belt is slipping or the compressor and/or clutch is bad.
If the compressor won't turn freely with the engine off, it may be locked up which will make the belt screech.

I currently have had my air conditioner die on me. When you turn it on it sounds like its working but nothing comes out. As soon as the air conditioning went my car started squealing when I accelerate.


The a/c compressor clutch might have locked up it should be free spinning when not engaged but could cause a belt to squeal and possiblly break if locked up

Air condition is blowing hot air.


If you can hear or see the compressor operating, change the thermostat and ensure there's sufficient coolant in the system. If the compressor will not operate when you turn on the air conditioner, you most likely have a leak in the system and have lost sufficient refrigerant to operate it. Most compressors need a minimun of 20lbs of pressure to operate. A lack of refrigerant will prevent the compressor from operating as a protective measure. Although it's possible to recharge the system yourself (products are available to both diagnose the leak and recharge the system) if you're unfamiliar or uncomfortable with doing it yourself, it should be serviced at an authorized service station that does AC work.

What size belt do you need to bypass the a/c compressor on a 2003 Chrysler town & country? Will the pulley have to be taken off of the compressor?


You have to purchase an air conditioner compressor delete kit. Any belt you try to put on will not work duse to the routing. The kit comes with a bracket an idler pulley and a new belt with all nessessary hardware to install they run about $100.00

I need to change front brake pads


You have two bolts to remove the caliper (it will still be attached to the flex hose). then use a C clamp to compress the caliper piston (one side on outside brake pad the other end on the back of the caliper). Inspect other components, replace pads and reinstall. I would highly recommend replacing rotors as well or at least having them turned. Its a pretty easy job if you have done similar jobs in the past.

Describe your 2000 Chrysler Town &


Look for a blown fuse or bad relay for the a/c in the front fuse box. If replacing fuse and it blows again, then there is a short circuit on the load side of the fuse which goes to the a/c compressor clutch. If fuse ok, try another relay to replace the possible bad a/c unit. The engine computer controls this relay. It also receives air temperature sensor reading from cold air path.

Air conditioner is not blowing cold air,


What pressure did you have? And Is the front of the compressor turning when you have this pressure. Also feel the two lines going to the compressor, one should be hot and one should be cold.
