Absolutely! The compressor needs a minimum amount of refrigerant (most units 2lbs) to function. The climate control is most likely calling for the a/c to engage but can't due to lack of refrigerant. The fact that it's trying to start indicates it may only be down a 1lb can of R-134A.

1992 GMC ac compressor not engaging no click when I turn ac on also ac light flashing on dash


Get yourself a couple of cans of refrigerant and a hose to do this,it comes as a kit at the auto parts store,or ask someone there.Connect the hose to the can with the needle out,then connect the other end to the fitting on the car,there's 2 fittings but will only fit one of them(they have a cap like a tire fill on them)then screw the needle in to puncture the can top and with engine running,the can will empty and refill your system.You maybe need a second can if this doesn't cause the clutch to ingage.Have the A/c ingaged too.[ut the cap back on when done.Dispose of the can properly and keep the hose.Have your system tested for leaks,they make a sealer in the same style cans for leaky systems.

Ac was working fine yesterday now compressor is not ingaging on. I recently had the freon filled. Any suggestions


Check your freon again. If its leaking once you get low on pressure the compressor wont kick in. If its not leaking you should check your Pressure Control Switch. If the PCS goes bad it will do the same thing. Good Luck. PS if you over charge your system it will also not work.

Air o0nditioner compressor does not ingage when A/C is turned on and does not furnish cold air


The 1st thing you need to do is have the refrigerant charge in the system checked, if the charge is low the compressor will not engage. This year and model is prone to leaks at the AC refrigerant line connection and at the AC Condenser core.

Ac compressor will not ingage it has refrigerant in it and low pressure switch is working any ideas


check the ac fuse for continuity and then check the relay that supplies power to the compressor,and then unplug the "magnetic clutch coil" that in front of the compressor and check that coil for continuity.they draw a lot of current and can burn open after time ,and also clean any connections as well, especially ground connections
