No current to ac compressor

A mechanic would start at the compressor and work back.
Did you jumper the low pressure switch, or the relay, or put power directly to the ac clutch ?
You have a low pressure switch that should be closed and a high pressure switch that should be closed to put power to the compressor clutch. If the freon pressure drops below 20psi the low switch opens, if it goes above 300 psi the high switch opens.

I have a 2002 mustang gt. my problem is with the A/C clutch not engaging. I have checked fuss and high and low pressure switch. i have also changed compressor and clutch. both are bran new. when i test the...

When you changed the compressor, did you recharge the AC system? If the pressure switches are not actuated by the correct pressure, the system will not engage the clutch. To charge the system you have to pump a vacuum on the system for about an hour. Follow the new compressor instructions as to the amount of oil that may be in it and how much the system calls for. See it has the correct type oil and the correct amount, then charge with the correct refridgerant and the correct amount.

AC clutch engages and disengages constantly

the system is low on charge, as far as the attempt to add refrigerant u did something wrong, no sure what, the rapid cycling of the compressor is only caused by a low charge 99% of the time. Have u hooked up a set of gauges to check pressures?
