GM products have a safety feature which shuts down compressors is they run too low on refrigerant. Honestly surprised you were able to fill the system with refrigerant since the compressor would have shut off. The best way to reset the compressor is to disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 min. After reconnecting, the compressor should function again assuming there's enough R-134A in it. If there's not, turn the AC to MAX and add the refrigerant. At this point, the system should actually **** the can dry. Hope this helps with your AC problem. All the best!

Today i added a bottle of a/c pro to my 2008 mazda 6 and my compressor stopped working, it rotated and stopped right away , anyone know the problem or solution? Please and thank you

You really should have Manifold gauge set for high and low pressures before messing with AC system. If system was empty, It still needs refrigerant to fill the system. There is a sticker on your hood or firewall or ac evaporator housing showing AC Capacity. Another thing when AC system is being charged, you usually have to jump the low pressure sensor in order to get it in. Please don't attempt this with out gauges.

2001 Olds Aurora. The fan is blowing but very little heat is coming out. Maybe 60 degrees tops. Where should I begin my trouble shooting to see what needs replacing?

First check to see that the cooling system is properly filled.
Next, watch you engine temperature and see that it hits operating temperature. If the thermostat sticks open the engine will never get up to normal temp. On my Aurora, that is exactly midway on the temp gauge.

97 Olds Aurora AC blowing warm air a day after recharging system

Several- The system should hold freon for years without leaking. There are pressure switches and they cut off the compressor with an undercharge and an overcharge. You need guages to measure the charge. There are testers the A/C shops have called "sniffers" which can detect a leak. If you have no leak then you need a technician to add or remove freon to get the concentration right. Or you need guages.

2001 Aurora Olds, A/C is blowing hot air. What could possibly have happened?

low refrigerant prevents the a/c pump from kicking on due to the low pressure switch. i would try to fill with a can of R134 (refrigerant) from the auto parts store. the low pressure switch may have gone bad.

1997 olds. auora overheating

feel of the top hose, if it's soft when the car is running and at operating temperature then it's probably air in the system, not allowing the pump to pick up the antifreeze. To get the air out let the car cool completely (like overnight) then fill the reservoir, leave the cap off and run the car until it comes up to normal operating temp. (watch to see you keep enough antifreeze so the tank doesn't go empty.
My 97 Aurora did the same thing and this fixed it.

1997 Oldsmobile Aurora Outside Temp Gauge

the sensor is in behind the nosecone. but this should not effect the ac system . it would it the inside temp sender said that in the auto mode only. put it in defrost mode and the compressor should be on if not you have another problem (maybe low on freon)
