This could be a number of things but the most common is that the system is just low on freon. the pressure switch wont engage if the right amount of freon isnt present in the system

No electrical power to AC Compressor. The switch light comes on in car when AC power button is turned on.


  1. Check if air blows with the fan setting turned to high.
  2. Check that the radiator cooling fan engages when the A/C button is pressed.
  3. Locate the compressor.
  4. Turn on the A/C.
  5. Check if the compressor's clutch has been engaged.
  6. If the clutch engages, the fault is elsewhere.
  7. If the clutch does not engage, check for power to the clutch.
These steps might help find the problem.

'98 Olds Intrigue, AC not working. It has a full charge of 134a and the compressor runs when the switch is pushed. The only odd thing is that the little orange light on the AC dash switch doesn't...


Check the fuses.

It is strange that the compressor engages when the button is on, but the light does not work.

Does cold air blow out the vents? If so, the light may have burned out...

4 Wheel drive does not engage on my 2002 Ford Explorer (6 cyl). Nothing happens when I push either the 4 High button or the 4 Low button. Any suggestions on what it could be? Worked fine last winter!


Could be the actuator motor on the transfer could be stuck or bad connection. Check to see if your gett power to the plug on the transfer case.

Is there a relay fuel pump switch for a 1987 ford bronco 2 If we straight wire it to the fuel pump it comes on but when turning on switch fuel pump will not come on.


I just had the same problem, today, check the tan- lt green wire on the fuel relay that is located on the right fender, mine wasn't pushed in all the way, this wire shut down spark and fuel, if you are looking for the shut off switch to reset the relay, it is on the passagers side floor board under the dash, gas two wires, orange and pink, I don't remember the color of the stripes, I removed this switch and wired them together without a problem

Air cond dash light works, compressor doesn't go on.


AC's have a low freon switch that shuts off the system to protect the compressor in the advent that you have a freon leak have the system checked for a leak

1996 Ford F150 4X4 won't shift into low range


I am not sure about Ford, but several of the 4x4 models use a vacuum hose connected to engine vaccum to switch the 4x4 functions. If you have a push button engage system then you may want to check the rubber hoses around the front drive shaft. This only applies for the push button models.
