That would be the fan clutch on the compressor itself... if it wont take a charge with all setting on high and running then you'll need to get it replaced , have a specialist inspect it to make sure the innards of the compresor arent junk...I have same pronblem with my 97 z28.. but it will take a charge and last 3 months then i have to recharge...The clutch and innards of my compressor are going bad..So its a chevy known issue,,,best of luck...Ohh one more thing do you hear a hiss when you turn it off and on, the ac that is

My 99 tahoe a/c is not working and is recharged properly. The clutch does not engage on the compressor and the compressor is new. What can the problem be


if you did the recharge then check the gas pressures as there are two main switches that control the ac operation
one is a high pressure switch which stops operation if there is excessive gas or a blockage and the other is a low pressure switch which stops operation if the gas has leaked out
did you have the ac system checked for leaks before gassing it or replacing the ac compressor
lastly some systems have a relay that controls the ac and that can fail

I have an 04 Tahoe. The entire ac has been replaced- compressor, dryer,orifice,sensors,and recharged. The ac worked for a couple weeks but just stoped. The compressor will not turn on.


Hi Pearce, Take the vehicle and have the pressures checked. Sounds as if it may be leaking and has lost pressure. The system has valves which allow operation only if the system has the correct pressure. Regards John

On the dashboard of my 99 deville it says a/c off low refrigerant. how do I turn the ac back on to recharge ? thank you ...


You will need to recharge it to get it to come back on, it has a pressure switch that will prevent operation until the level is brought back up to normal.

99' Chevy Tahoe Air Conditioner not working


It doesn't blow cold air? Doesn't come on at all? What's the problem? If it doesn't blow cold after a charge, it leaks. Either on the compressor or in a line or both. To start at the dealer, a compressor is about $1200. That's what they told me. I have two leaks. You can buy remanufactured compressor on ebay for under $200. Or find a good shop (polar bear around here) with reasonable prices and have them do it for something in between.

If it no air is moved at all by your climate control system, the blower motor could be fried, the switch may have gone bad or a fuse is blown perhaps. If it moves air, but not cold air, recharge it and see if it stays cold. If so, great! If not, find the leak.
