    thank you 4 the responses I had to jump the compressor clutch to add the ref. I added an 18 oz. can. When the clutch was jumped out with 12 V. everything worked and the system cooled but when hooked up normal the clutch will not kick on. I also checked for voltage on the wires to the clutch their was 12 V. but did not change when the a/c switch was turned on and off. I have been told that low ref. will not allow the clutch to turn on but how much does the system take?

    Is system possibly low on refrigerant?

Your pressures in the system are probably low and the low pressure switch has it cut off. Get some of that quick fill freon kit from autozone. Fill it. If compressor kicks in, then look for a leak. Your leaks will usually have a layer of dark oily substace that dirt gets stuck in. Hope that helps. The leak might be small enough that it dose not need repairs.

2006 Dodge Ram Diesel AC will not work, found code P1274


P1274-a/c Clutch Control Circuit 2 Open You will need the help of the dealer or a factory wiring diagram and diagnostic flow chart to fix this one. I can't find a clear cut answer other than someone that used a fuse for the AC circuit to power another system and the fuse blew out.

AC stopped cooling on my 2007 ram 2500 diesel. Had it recharged but still did not work. I have power at switch. The clutch is not engaging. Can I replace just the clutch.?

2007 Dodge 2500 5.9 diesel. When you turn on AC you can see clutch try and engauge and after 3-4 tries it stops. No AC. If drive around for a while AC starts to work after engine heats up?


Working same problem today on my 2006 Mega Cab Diesel. 2 possibilities. Either the compressor clutch coil is going bad ( totally integrated power module tries to engage it a couple of times, senses the coil resistance is wrong and shuts down) or the TIPM (Total Integrated Power Module) is bad. I'm leaning toward clutch on compressor but still have testing to do to isolate. Could be both, but I doubt it. New TIPM is about $900 it appears from what I read. New compressor is cheaper. May be able to replace just the clutch coil for even less but reading mixed results. Good luck.

I have a 06 dodge ram 3500 with Cummings diesel.


you have what is known as an open diff. or worn out clutch packs in a limited slip. most makers put in a open diff because its cheaper and handles better. if you did not pay for it on your invoice your stuck with stock unless you put it in your self.

I have the same truck with the same exact problem. Mine also stopped blowing while pulling a camper and indeed it is the clutch on the A/C. I was told if you can find someone in your area that can actually rebuild the compressor and not put a new one in you can come out alot cheaper! Also if you crank your truck and turn the A/C on look under the truck on the passenger side at the compressor and take a tool of small hammer and tap the compressor in the middle and it should come on and run the a/c for a little while! I did this until it finally went out and it worked! Might buy you some time!
