The pressure means nothing as far as the state of charge. You need to have the system completely evacuated and recharged with the specific charge weight for that vehicle. Only then can the pressures or anything else mean anything.

Ac clutch won't kick in but fuse in fuse block is good, is there another fuse ?


Hi Steve, have the gas pressure of the AC unit checked. There are safety pressure switches in the system which will stop the operation of the AC system if the pressure is too low. regards John

New compresser just stopped working was very cold ran it all day and now the compressor is not kicking in and out how can you tell if it is a relay or loss of carge


FIrst, with any electrical problem, always check the fuses first. The only way to correctly check the charge of the AC system is with a set of guages. You can assume the charge is good and procede with the electrical diagnosis, but it may all be a waste of time if the system has lost the charge. With the AC on, if there is a proper charge in the system, there should be 12v at the compressor clutch connector. This will be a 2 wire connector just behind the AC pulley. You will need a 12v test light, meter, or some way to check for voltage. If there is 12v and the compressor is not engaged, then the clutch coil has gone bad. If there is not 12v then you will need to check the relay for voltage. Sometimes you can swap relays with another that has the same part number. If the original relay is bad then the compressor will start working after the swap. Check all the fuses, under the hood and under the dash. Sometimes a fuse will control more than one circuit.

AC compressor won't engage clutch


Lots of things can cause this, I will list them, easiest first.

A blown fuse or relay can prevent the clutch from kicking in. Low refridgerant charge will also do this, the low pressure switch will prevent the clutch from engaging when there is low refrigerant to prevent damage. You may need to put more in, and you also may need to jump the low pressure switch to get the compressor going to add more in. Very rarely the controls could have gone bad, which are the buttons on the dash. Id check out the fuses, relays, and pressure in the system first. A shop may even do a free diagnosis for you.

The a/c clutch wont engage


Did you try jumping where the Clutch relay plugs into the fuse/relay box ? Pin 87 & 30 are the compressor clutch coil power supply . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four set's of numbers 30 & 87 , 85 & 86 . If you take a piece of wire an jump 30 to 87 this will send B+ voltage to the clutch coil engaging the compressor . Is the PCM turning on the relay ?

Power to ac clutch fuse no power at clutch on 03 leSabre


If your AC system is otherwise operational, it may just need to be charged. The compressor will not come on unless there is sufficient charge/pressure in the system. So, first thing to check is the amount of charge in the system. You can purchase a gauge , similar to a tire gauge, that will give a reading of the system's charge. The gauge hooks up to the low pressure side ,or the larger diameter hose/line, same as where you place the re-charge hose. Again, if the system is operational, as you charge it, the compressor should kick in. At first, it will cycle on and off until the system reaches sufficient pressure.
Hope this helps...

A/C do not cool


start the vehicle and turn your a/c system to max air high fan. then lift the hood the a/c clutch should kick in to run the system, if it is not then check the power distribution box for a blown fuse replace if it is required. if the fuse is is good next step is to check the a/c clutch relay it is a small square block in that same power distribution box. switch the fan relay with with the a/c clutch relay if the clutch kicks in then the relay was the fault if it doesn't then that means there is not enough 134a refrigerant to kick the a/c clutch in. this could mean that the system is either under charged because of a breakdown in the refrigerant over the past 4 years or there is a leak in the system. in this case take it to a qualified a/c tech and have them recharge the system.
