Check the low side switch located on the ac receiver drier for 12 volts if so jump it with a paper clip if the compressor comes on then the relay is good if not the relay is in the fuse junction box under the hood.Most likely the pressure sensor.

Nothing happens when the ac switch is turned on, no cold air, clutch doesn't engage

Check fuses and AC relay, check system pressures with AC manifold gauges to determine system charge capacity. If it is below sensor limit on freon, the comp. clutch will not kick in. I hope this helps.

Ac will blow warm air, the clutch does not engage. Could this be a compressor prob? Looked in the manual trouble shooting ideas

Since you know that the clutch must engage in order for the compressor to operate, then there are most likely one of causes. The first is low or no freon in the system. The a/c system has a pressure sensor mounted in the low( return) side hose that prevents the clutch to engage if the freon is too low. The second would be the a/c fuse or relay faulty, preventing the clutch solenoid( a 12 volt electrically operated solenoid) from engaging. And the third would be that the clutch itself is bad because the solenoid wiring has broken. I suggest that first you locate the a/c clutch relay in the relay panel, remove the relay, carefully remove the plastic cover from the relay and reinstall the relay. The clutch should engage the compressor when you manually close the relay contact with your finger for one or two seconds. If the clutch does engage, your electrical circuit in ok and you are probably low on freon. A half of a can of r-134 in more that enough to operate the pressure switch. If it doesn't engage, check the a/c fuse or the clutch solenoid itself. Get back to me and let me know how things went. Dano

yes, but your ac system contains switches, one low preasure switch to shut compressor down when freon is low, this is to avoid compressor damage,if low on freon the compressor will not turn on. the first thing to do is make sure the feron is full, you will need a teck to do this, i dont think you should atempt this, its high preasure you may cant hurt or damage your system if not done right.

AC not working

The A/C system has a pressure sensor that detects the freon level in the system. If you lost freon, the clutch that engages the compressor will not engage. A good indicator is to turn on the A/C and watch the compressor/clutch assembly. If the pulley is spinning and the clutch is not, odds are you have a freon leak. Good luck!!

If there is no r-12 or freon in the system it wont come on. Try jumping the pressure switch. It's a 2 wire plug somewhere one the AC lines. Just pull it off and jump the wire end with another wire.If the clutch engages you need freon or R-12.
